Everything needs confirmation

I have an artist temperament, that means several things but for one I am very passionate about my work, no matter what that might be. I have a strong need to care for those around me and seek their approval and the lack of it leaves a feeling of worthlessness and failure. to not receive a thank you is agony some days.

At times my creativity just lets go and the outcome completely surprises me to the point I am not even sure where it came from for example in this drawing of my daughter I did freehand while still in the hospital with her. Those who don’t understand this type of vision say something like, ok that was a good photoshop.

Reasonable me knows they are just jealous and flighty me wonders how they can be so mean.

 

I still need their approval

 

Thanks to our daily inspiration

  1. Thank you for sharing. Sometimes I too feel under appreciated even though, like you, I try to care for those around me…perhaps a little too much. You have to remember that not everyone has an artist’s insights or temperament. Remember that you are special. If you start feeling negative ideas about yourself then do what I do. Go to a quiet place in your mind and after taking a few deep breaths take on your artist’s psyche. Begin to do something creative. Sometimes many critics seem insensitive but in reality they cannot mentally align themselves with your way of thinking. Take care. Keep on submitting your work. 🙂

  2. Thank you for sharing this deeply personal and emotional side of yourself. Individuals possessing an artist’s temperament and insights are unique, creative individuals. They see the world differently, creatively if you will. We share a temperament and determined commitment to our work. Non artistic types are not being mean spirited when they offer you their comments. They just don’t realize how much their justification of your work means to you. That is ok. Just remember to not devalue yourself in the process. Your are unique…an artist… and filled with creative insights. Keep on producing your creative works and posting them on your blog.

  3. Good day! I could have sworn I’ve been to this site before but after
    going through some of the articles I realized it’s new to me.
    Anyhow, I’m certainly pleased I stumbled upon it and I’ll be bookmarking it and checking back regularly!
