Artists Giving Up Hope

If you are an artist reading this, your art is actually amazing. You probably feel that nagging self doubt feeling don't you? it eats away at you sometimes. Well guess what, FUCK THAT. "The first step to being good at something is to be shit at it first" every drawing you draw, is a stepping stone to greatness. You improved in micro amounts without even realising it. Even if you are not happy with it, there is a person out there that wishes they could draw what you just did. Not only that, but art is subjective, ever see piccasso? that shit looks crap to me man, but hey it sells for millions per painting.

If you are a programmer, your shitty code? who the fuck cares man. Thats the glue holding that game together. 99% of the world can't even write a single line of code, you are already UNIQUE. You have taken the step to learning something that makes the entire world of technology go round. Bugs in your code? who cares, man you are always improving, polishing and refining. That doubt can go die my friend, even if you just made the screen print "Hello World" you are already learning and that knowledge will stay in your brain for the rest of your life. 10,000 little steps will equal coding amazeballs. My codes rough, its not refined, it's messy but you know what. IT GOT THE JOB DONE BOY. So keep on coding my friend

if you make any type of music or sound, you are creating literally vibrations our ears interpret into creativity. Every beat, every sound, it all comes together. Doesn't matter if you made a 10 second FLstudio DJ Mix, the fact you even worked out that program makes you a god my friend. Music programs themself are as complicated as a woman with a DJ set strapped to her forehead. Music is VERY subjective. Even if someone says meh, another person will be like this is beautiful. Don't ever stop, keep on making it.

So yeah you, hey you. You trying to make things. You are a god among humans for bringing an idea in your head and literally transitioning that into reality.

Don't you ever forget it.
