when I stopped apologizing for it. The simple act of treating my art like it was worth something--or at least not treating it like it WASN'T worth anything--changed absolutely everything

There's still a lot more I can learn, but I'm proud of my work & happy with what I produce✨

Being an creative person can be hard, because no matter how much you make stuff for yourself, you're also always kind of after that external validation, esp if you share your work online--it's easy to feel discouraged just throwing your work into the void & getting no response, while following & being surrounded by all these artistic marvels

But if you aren't going to believe in your work, who will?
