Worrying whether I’m heading in the right direction.
I’m afraid people will think it’s bad, or that I’m not evolving as an artist.
I’m afraid I don’t have what it takes to stay in the game.
Sometimes I get caught up in planning and don’t make enough time to create.
Sometimes I’m not sure how to get from Point A and Point Z.
I worry I’m copying my creative influences and role models.
I’m pulled in different directions and have trouble sticking to one thing.
I’m not sure how to make a meaningful statement.
I doubt my instincts.
Some people use it to be fake/untouchable and I don’t want to play that game.
There’s too much stuff out there and I don’t know how to stand out.
I don’t want my life to be a popularity contest for likes and follows.
I have a complicated relationship with social media.
I learn best alone or from my peers, but there aren’t many people in my field and around my level near me.
I like to learn from the greats but I don’t have access to art school or formal training.
I prefer to be hands-on, but I’m not sure where to start.
Advice from people I can’t relate to.
Advice from people who think their way is the only way.
Advice that only gives me one perspective.
I don’t really like advice, period.
I don’t have enough time or energy to get serious– only enough to mess around.
I have so much going on, I never get a moment to do anything creative.
I have a hard time making room for anything except my art.
I want to make more room for my art but I’d have to change my life a lot and that scares me.
It paralyzes me from moving forward, because I’m worried I may fail.
I’m scared I won’t have the courage to bounce back if I fail.
I’m afraid I’ll make mistakes I can’t fix.
I’m scared that some things are absolutely impossible.
I feel like I don’t know how to contribute.
I don’t know if my art will actually help anyone.
I feel disconnected from my community.
