I love your stories (and drawings!) and I can relate to this one… Love to see that you got over your “giving up feeling” and that you found your own way to express yourself! I am also trying. Creativity takes courage…
Thank you, Gertrude! I hope you do keep trying! The “giving up” feeling never entirely goes away, but the effort is always worth it.
Thanks for giving words to a phenomenon I’ve experienced many times in life but never really realized until now. As someone with chronic comparisonitis, I definitely need to learn not to let that “there’s no hope, you’ll never measure up” feeling stop me from persevering.
‘Chronic comparisonitis’ – awesome.
This is a funny phenomenon and one I combat by remindin gmyself if I feel envious or jealous of someone else’s work or accomplishments, I need to be doing more of it for myself.
