Take it off your chest...

I don't know if whats happening to me right now is result of my specific career choices or if it is life's inescapable tendency for tragedy. should i continue holding on to this faint sense of hope or should i just try to be safe? being safe isn't going anywhere, no one i admire did it, i know i won't find love that way, but is life really just this? it's like it's nothing and we're only worth what we create or do, should i just accept it that my art will kill me so i can be a real artist, like my hero?

  • Get that idea out of your head that you have to suffer for art, because it isn't true. You are not only worth what you can do or create. You are so much more. Dying for art is stupid. Don't let someone who was willing to sacrifice everything for no good reason be your hero. That's not what makes someone a 'real' artist. You know what makes you a real artist? Making art. That's it. That's all it takes. If you make art, you are an artist. You might not be the best artist in the world, but that doesn't invalidate what you do. Sometimes you do have to take a bold step in a new direction, and that can be scary, but sometimes change is a good thing. You can't get anywhere without reaching out and trying.
