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.
