I've been an artist as long as I could remember. In high school, my depression got the best of me and I drifted away from it. After graduating I got pregnant and didn't have time to do anything, but take care of my daughter. I recently lost medical assistance since I can't hold a job. I was let go because I wasn't strong enough to be in costumer service. I want to tap into my anxiety and depression feel some relief again. (and possibly sell some to relieve the fear of financial stability) I have so many ideas, but my anxiety blocks me. I remember all the times being bullied for being too emotional and it scares me away. And then the depression sets in and I feel so physically drained. Thoughts of... Not being good enough (But practice makes perfect) What if I don't have time, What if I'm wasting time (I don't have a job or anywhere else to be) All the criticism (But art always comes with critics) Having no support... If I did get passed this anxiety block... Will I actually be happier? (I won't know if I don't try) Will people like it? (If it makes you feel better, who cares?) Was it all overreacting? (Most likely) All the flooding thoughts just leave me crying, paralyzed, and panicked. I can't talk to anyone about it cause their answer is "Just Do It." I don't know if I need these thoughts out there, just thought I would share what was on my mind. Do you have any thoughts or an art story to share?
