So do you listen to your own music and why?
I listen to my own stuff, then listen to what other's make... which is usually 10x better. I do this to hopefully try and figure out what I'm doing wrong. Since "You suck" is hardly constructive criticism, I have no formal education in the software I'm using, and I might be creative but new on HOW to be creative (good methods).
So, I'm left with the only option of being my own worst critic, trying to reverse engineer the methods others use for composition, mixing, and sound 'blending'.
It'd be so much easier if I had a mentor or a study buddy (to learn/use Ableton Live with), but we do what we can with the cards we're dealt.
