kidsxheroes replied to your post: For all my artist/author homies:

DON’T FEEL LIKE THAT! while appreciated is easier said then done. I really don’t ever want to feel that way but it’s such hard thing to shake off. I won’t ever actually stop what i do & will always look at at others art,sometimes it just hurts though

Okay, good point! But here’s the deal: when you verbalize it? You make it real. If you start typing it or saying it, stop yourself and redirect your brain processes. Even if you still feel bad, promise yourself that you won’t feel bad later and that you’ll use this to help yourself grow! Example:

>>Shit, this art is amazing!
>>I could never be as good as this.
>>Except that I could if I kept working, or at least I can be the best at what I do.
>>I better keep working hard!
>>Shit, this art is amazing! What can I learn from it?

It’s the same as if you’re always saying “I’m fat, I’m ugly, I’m socially inept”–sure, keep putting yourself down! Obviously it’s helping a lot! You gotta get up and go, man! We can all do it, that’s the best thing about being a dynamic human!
