Try to focus on accepting and loving yourself from the very core. If one is able to accept all of their own flaws unconditionally, then it becomes difficult for anyone else to be able to use their flaws against them.
…my andreil playlist on spotify has 208 songs but lemme try and narrow it down to the most andreil ones:
supercut - lorde // if it hurts - gallant // hold on for your life - sam tinnesz // come as you are - prep school // beautiful crime - tamer // feel something - jaymes young // honey whiskey - nothing but thieves // clouds - borns // it’s time - imagine dragons // end credits - eden // 400 lux - lorde // faithful heights - night beds // i found - amber run
and, of course, the andreil anthem, their iconic ringtone, runaway train by soul asylum
This is going to sound super silly, but I feel like I need to ask it in order to help myself. I’ve been in a massive rut with my art lately, and aside from Bi-Assed, I can’t get motivated to finish anything. Part of this is because of my day jobs, but the other part of me has just been feeling “Why bother?” I know that artists have to force themselves to get motivated and make art, and I’ve been trying, but with fatigue and depression it’s been……difficult. I honestly WANT to finish art (I have like 10 WIPS that I want to get done!!!), but I just can’t. Part of me thinks this is just because I tired, but I’m starting to feel like I’m just becoming lazy and empathetic, and I’m just using my day jobs as an excuse not to work on stuff.
Make a long story short; depression and crappy day jobs as been making arting hard, and I don’t want to feel like this anymore. So this is going to sound arrogant and stupid, but I want to know; What is it about my art that you guys like? What are things that you think I can improve? What about my art makes you happy?
I feel like a jerk for asking this. “Ohhhh tell me how awesome I am so I’ll get motivated.” But….I don’t know. I feel like asking this will help me figure things out and get my shit together.
