This is what is so cool about you and me... We may do similar or even the same thing. We may enjoy similar likes and have similar interest... but not one of us has the same exact talents paired with same exact burdens.
Our burdens and our passions seem to collide. What I’m passionate about is my faith, my family, my need to be creative ... What burdens tend to be heavy on my heart (some more than others and in different seasons) are others knowing how loved they are by Jesus, the importance of family - infertility and adoption awareness in the process of making a family, and our desire to create and how our fear can stop us from fulfilling that desire.
My point here is this... don’t be pressured if you feel the need to do what everyone else is doing. And don’t be discouraged if you feel like everyone else is already doing the thing you want to be doing.
NO ONE can do the thing like you can do it. Maybe you have similar styles, maybe the path you take is similar, maybe the idea even is the same... the way you put it out there in into motion can be your own.
And guess what... someone else may not respond to the other persons “way” the way they may respond to your “way”. The need to hear what you have to say, they need to see what you have to show.
You will find your true joy when you pursue your true calling. Get off the comparison ride. Put on your blinders on focus only on your calling.
We all need it! We all need you. To be you.
Been focusing on my mental health a lot recently, I’ve always wanted to create this environment for myself where I would put out my art whenever I wanted to. However I always felt this pressure to create all the time. Mainly because I also study in a creative field & have a creative business, it naturally led me to create 24/7. But in the end it became unhealthy for me. I sometimes forget that it’s also fine to NOT create for days and to take ur time to fill creativity up.
