when will i
get to bloom too?
this comic is shit
its depressing drivel that will stagnate you artistically into a pile of lukewarm art block. Without wanting to focus on yourself and your own art, and only looking at results (and not even your own!) instead of enjoying the ride, is it any wonder that you don’t feel like you’re improving? “Don’t compare your growth to others” means nothing if you don’t actually do it. If you don’t follow the advice and suffer for it, then it’s not very good advice now, is it? If you can’t follow it, then the problem is something else - like putting too much pressure on others to fulfill yourself. You need to enjoy your own craft. ‘Cause this kind of thing? Yeah, it’s powerful imagery, but it’s a lot of stagnation and negativity is what it is. If you want to be more productive, draw more, it’s literally that simple. You have to judge yourself by your own art, or else you’re not making it.
This comic annoys me a lot. Ask your friends about their inspiration, or concentrate on the joy of the craft — anything that focuses the attention on you is better then nothing. Because what it comes down to is that no one else is gonna grow your garden for you, and if you’re too busy peaking at what could be, you’ll never appreciate the one you’re trying to grow.
this wasnt about my art you absolute fuck-face.
this was about the fact that due to my many mental illnesses i’ve had to take off multiple semesters of school and have had many instances of lagging way behind in many life trials that most of my peers have already surpassed. i’ve had to remain in a constant state of recovery while everyone around me moved on. they moved on and i was left behind counting pills and milligrams.
this comic was about MY feelings about MY mental and educational growth and i didnt ask for shitheads like you misinterpreting it and getting pissy and holier-than-thou before lecturing me on a subject YOU KNEW NOTHING ABOUT.
you annoy me a lot. because you assumed all of this irrelevant bullshit nonsense that was absolutely not the original point of the comic. and you’re gross for feeling you had the need and the ego to write any of that in the first place. you weren’t helpful. you were just an arrogant piece of garbage.
"tch" you, asshole
Fuck I’m walking downtown and I pass a group of guys staring at me and I think “great catcall time” but then one guy goes “you look like you could kill a man a million different ways with just your bare hands”. This. This is an acceptable comment to give a girl on the street.
one of my favorite things about the rivals-to-lovers trope is when one of them, at the beginning of their relationship, grumbles about how much they hate the other person’s awful face and i sort of cackle to myself like, oh man. you’re going to have it so bad. it’s going to be so great. you are going to love the CRAP out of that awful face. you’ll be composing delicious, pining, sappy sonnets about it. i love it.
Fun little trick I learned in therapy: validation. When someone is upset, don’t try to fix the problem, point out the cause, or tell them it could be worse. Just validate their emotions. Be like, ‘shit yeah man, that sucks. I’m sorry you’re going through that. I’m here for you.’ That’s literally all you have to do to make them feel better. Thank you and goodnight.
