Been struggling a lot with imposter syndrome, wondering if maybe just posting some art with help combat it

    My theory is feeling like this is the weakness to our super power. Something to bring us down from "greatness".

    To be honest I think all of us who are artists have these feelings. We're over sensitive and see the world differently then most. I know I feel like this too a lot of the time and have all my life, so you're not alone. If it isn't this it's anxiety, worrying about if you're good enough or not. Let me tell you, you are good enough. So is your artwork.
    I know it's easy for someone who is a complete stranger to say to "believe in yourself". It's not so easy to say that to yourself and believe it though. I get that. I've been in your shoes. I don't know what more I can say? Just I hear ya and you're not alone. Smile

      It means a lot, just you even taking the time to comment means a lot. Part of me knows that others struggle with the same thing but there's always that louder, negative voice shouting over it. It's really comforting though to have someone (metaphorically) grab me by the shoulders and say I'm not alone. I don't think I could put into words how much your comment means to me, but I did tear up (good tears!!) while reading it. Thank you <3

        Ahhh, now I'm going to tear up. <3 No one should ever feel alone and really I know how hard it is to get out of this kind of slump. I just keep telling myself that time will make it better and usually does.
        I've been through a lot in my life and think of myself as a survivor. But really wish someone had been there with encouragement for me when I was younger. Rescue me from myself and others. Then things probably wouldn't of been so hard. So when I see people really down on themselves I try to help. Because I really know where they're coming from. Stop them from digging that hole they're in any deeper. Try to give a (metaphoric) hug and just let them know there's someone out there that cares. Smile I'm glad my words made you feel better. Really, you are good enough, you just have to believe it. Make that stupid negative, "kryptonite" voice in your head shut up. Prove it wrong. (yeah, I know easier said then done, but I'm cheerleading here so give me a break, :lolSmile
