It’s a struggle, but, as a creator, I often get down a little too hard on myself. I tell myself I should be at this artist’s level, selling my work like her, or have an online gallery like this guy. These thoughts cut me down pretty tough sometimes. But I know how good I am, how much my work has progressed and how good I feel when I do create, even if no one sees it. And instead of beating myself up, I should continue to make things that make me feel good. [As should you.] And use other artist’s work as inspiration instead of a comparability chart. It’s a struggle but it’s worth it.

Hey Beautiful, don’t compare your life, art, beauty, etc. to any one else’s. We are all here to do what we are meant to do, and we cant argue with God or the plan that he has for us. And don’t worry you arent by yourself, I think everyone is their biggest critic, but that should definitely be your push, and your motivation to become a better person day by day… Then you can look back and be proud of your struggles, because they made you stronger, and got you to be this powerful person that you are today. xoxoxoxoxoxoxxoxo
Thank you for your kinds words! I completely agree with you. And I know I’m not alone in feeling this way sometimes and that’s what moved me to post this, for folks who might think they’re alone in the struggle.
I appreciate you!
