Giving up on conventional success in creative writing was the best thing I ever did. Like you, I can never seem to please editors and agents, except when it comes to academic stuff. Sometimes it seems like most of them don’t have the first clue what kind of material will resonate with a big audience. A lot of them chase trends or cling to obsolete rules about what makes good writing. For every good editor, there’s probably a dozen knockoffs. :)
