u know u fucked up when u still haven’t slept yet and u hear birds chirping outside
Every time I see someone complaining about being crappy at what they do compared to others (usually drawing or writing) I say something along the lines of “get over it and just keep doing what you do.” And invariably somebody says “well, Ched, it’s not that easy”
The thing is, that’s true. It’s not easy. It’s hard as hell. Just because the answer to your problem is simpledoesn’t mean it’s easy.It just means you have to do that one, difficult thing. Learning to push past your insecurities, especially when it comes to comparing yourself to others, is one of the most difficult things to learn. But it’s vital. I don’t say “get over it” because I’m mad or trying to be rude. I say it because it’s the best advice I have. I learned the hard way, and I’m a better artist for it. And I would have been an even better artist if I’d learned it earlier
If you want to make art (or improve your skills in general) you have to abandon the notion that others are just BETTER and that your talents only exist in relation to theirs. Saying “it’s difficult, I can’t stop comparing myself to others” means you’re more concerned with being better than others than you are with being better than your current self. Only wanting to make art so long as you can maintain the notion that it’s good is no way to improve. You have to embrace the failures and all the crap you’re gonna make before you get to where you really want to be
Discouragement can feel like a bag of bricks on your chest. Is it hard to push the bricks off? You bet. But there’s no other solution than to just do it. Otherwise you’re just gonna lie there, and the bricks are only going to get heavier
Anonymous said: You seem to misunderstand the definition of "social justice warrior". It's the white, cis, heterosexual bullying "speshial" twat.
No, I understand perfectly what a “social justice warrior” is. It’s a bullshit pejorative used by entitled fuckwads who want to silence marginalized people by illegitimizing their struggles as nothing but petulant internet whining. When, in reality, the only real petulant internet whiners are the self proclaimed anti-sjws who aren’t happy unless they’re complaining about something.
If you honestly believe otherwise, then you’re following the wrong fucking person, bud.
In my eyes the sjw are the radicals who go to far. The normal ones i call social justice bloggers. Small but important diffrence
tbh you kinda sound like one of those people who claim they aren’t racist by saying they don’t hate black people, “just n*ggers”.
