“You are a lousy artist” and other shitty excuses that we tell ourselves

“You are a lousy artist”
-Your inner demon

No, you just have to stop complaining about being bad and start practicing more. Also, don’t let other people define your art. Do what you want. Become an expert of what you like.

“I don’t have time to draw more”
-Inner demon strikes back

If you have the time for watching Game of Trones. You have time for drawing more.
Priorities man.

“Whatever. Nobody cares about your art anyway”
-This bitch voice inside your head

You don’t know that.
And besides, you should be doing it because you love it. If you do your duty with passion, people will notice you. Believe me.

“I don’t know how to do X thing”
-…

Internet.

“Why botter? You are going to fail anyway.”
-This hoe

We all are afraid of failing at some point, but guess what? Fear it’s not going to disappear, so you have to move forward, even with your fears.

“I’m not like X person”
-Your inferiority complex

Maybe that artist you admire so much have way more problems and insecurities than you think. You don’t have to be like any other person to be great.

And…

And that’s it. I needed to remind me these things, and I thought somebody else could need them too.

And… I need to take a shower.

See ya, folks.

Minerva out!

What to do when life gets crazy

Well, life it’s always crazy, but sometimes it gets a little too crazy, right?

I know, I know, dear. I’ve been here and there, bad feelings after bad feelings, disaster after disaster, struggling with the same issues as many other people in the world. Shit is crazy. Shit is bananas. Whatever. Even now that I’m writing these lines, I’m struggling to find the correct words to express myself and not to think in the future and its many possibilities for me, not all of them good. It’s scary to think too much about it.

Why I’m saying this nonsense? Oh, I’ve just been really thoughtful lately. Maybe my health is not so good as I thought. Put many things in perspective. College, for instance, is really awful to me. When I’m in that classroom with all the other young kiddos who are trying to become a professional journalist, I feel tired, and sad. I don’t belong there, I think. Am I learning or just wasting my time? What Am I learning? How me, a B+ student, became the most apathic being of the classroom? Am I being selfish if I only want to draw…?  What to do? Well, you get the point.

Sometimes you just have to breath in, follow your heart, BUT without leaving your mind behind. Other people’s expectations are chains, you must get rid off them. Care about yourself, exersise yourself, eat well and make your dream a reality. I know life is crazy, hard, nonsesical, but we still can try. Every day a little harder, everyday a little smarter.
