Amber, I was accepted into a few art schools that I've been dreaming of going to for YEARS and I was just really hit with the fact that, despite actually getting a lot of scholarships, there's no chance that I'll be able to afford any of them. I know art school isn't everything, and I'm already honestly pretty good, but I'm afraid that without art school connections I'll never make it, and it's killing me to know that, no matter how hard I work, I won't be able to afford it
What you’re feeling now is what nearly knocked me out of the game about a year ago. Even after I accepted that I couldn’t afford it, I still had so much leftover pain that I had to work through. I had spent my entire life planning to go to art college and it really felt like my future had been robbed of me. I spiraled for months.
