d a n g…………………….

oh ow. that really hits a bit too close to home.

I don’t mean to belittle the sentiments of this piece at all by adding to it (it’s a very effective and relatable comic!), but quite a few of my friends have been very down about this lately (the whole having nothing to offer thing)…so I just sort of want to remind them that there’s always someone who admires your work, who perhaps gets inspired by you, who maybe gets fuzzy feelings looking at your stuff.  Maybe you don’t know them yet, or maybe you do but you’re too distracted by this feeling to realize it… They might be someone who watches you from afar and has the same feelings, maybe someone who you’re actually quite close to, or maybe someone you look up to.

It’s fine to feel like this, yes, but I just hope that it won’t stop you from wanting to move forward and keep going at what you like.  We can’t control our feelings all the time, but I hope you don’t feel inferior around people who you think are more talented/skilled.  It would sorta suck to know you’re putting someone down with the skill you’ve developed in doing what you love.  I know it’s hard and sometimes you just feel plain crummy, but maybe try to let it inspire and empower you.  I don’t know if it’s nice to take comfort in the fact that there will always be people ‘worse’ than you, but I hope that knowing that there will always be people ‘better’ than you will inspire and give you something to always look up at, to keep your head up.  It’s hard to improve when you’re always looking down!

Again, this isn’t really a direct response to the original comic, but moreso to my friends who have been feeling very glum about the matter recently (which is a surprising lot of you)…  Must be something in the weather?

If you guys ever need to talk, I’m here man.  My advice sucks but I can lend an ear.

Hell, even if we’re strangers and you need to talk, just shoot me an ask.

Chin up!

Now I can reblog this. It doesn’t matter if you’re not the best, there’s always room for your contribution for this world. Especially if it’s something you love doing. Cuz dang, nobody else has YOUR mind, thoughts, feelings and ideas YOU give to the world. There will always be similar stuff, but not quite like yours. Keep on doing what you love.

Being ‘good’ doesn’t matter. I have seen people with bags of technical skill at their craft who had absolutely nothing to say.

Do the work you can do because only you can do it.
