I’m sorry, Lyss.
I can certainly relate. It’s hard to get out of that funk. It’s been taking a lot of mental energy on my part to get myself to do things since January. Part of why I took that trip. Force myself to get out.
I think you really under credit your unique style and skills in your art. Your potato art is something that is yours. I absolutely adore it. Everyone has expressed so much love towards the piece you did for me and my partner. I have it where I can see it every single day. It always makes me smile. The cool part about being as young as you are is, you have so much time and room to grow and learn. So if you keep at it and keep growing, a handful of years from now you will be able to see the progress you made from now till then. Don’t give up, my friend. Keep going at it. You can only get better. But I understand those feelings because I get that way about my art as well. So, I get it. Which is why I keep trying to do tutorials and watch a lot of videos so I can keep learning more and more so I can improve.
You are NOT stupid or weak. You are a human being with natural emotions. It’s normal to feel how you do. We just have to find ways to process through these things and pick ourselves up. It’s not always easy, but Lyss you are so much stronger than you credit yourself. You are a beautiful and amazing young lady and I love you. I know things are hard now, but I know that you can pull through.
And you know that there are a lot of us here to stand by your side as you do.
I’m sending you a lot of love my friend. I hope it gets better.
