my eternal struggle

I hope I'm not annoying you with the sad ones, but the point of these was to make myself feel better and deal with it. I would rather be honest than hide it.

Author Notes

I might seem like a broken record about this, but I basically have been for years. I have good days, and sometimes even weeks where things seem okay. But other times not so much.

I don’t know why I have such a tendency for depression and self-loathing. My personality? Something wrong with my brain? Combination of the two? I don’t know.

But I do know I’ll get through it. I always do.


You rock every day. Just don't lose hope, and if you do, I'll be there to help you find it again.
Just keep swinging the pick and you'll eventually break through the wall.
I totally understand. My problem is that I overthink so much, and that's due to my high anxiety issues. In all honesty, the true, absolute "cure" for this is to stop feeling sorry for yourself. I've yet to reach that point, but I've grazed it before. It's just to stop saying "I can't because this is how I am, and how I am won't let me be who I want to be", and to start saying "I'm gonna be the person I want to be".

For some people, it's exercising, and getting that body they've always wanted. For others, it's to stop being afraid and take chances, etc. Getting through it is good. Getting over it and becoming better is the solution, though. If who you are makes you unhappy, then stop being who you are, and find a better you. It's easy to say it, and that's why I've yet to reach that point, but I know that all I have to do is start working on it, as soon as I know exactly the kind of person I want to be.
Everyone has struggling points in their life.
We just need to move on and keep strong!
I'd say more except I have to be someplace in a minute but don't stop fighting the good fight. Even if depression does suck(I'd say I'm facing a bit of it lately)
I feel like this a lot of the time myself. I found a really good article/eBook that helped with it all and helped me get a new perspective on what I want from my writing/comics (when I eventually get around to drawing them) It's called the War of Art and it's pretty easy to Google.

If venting about it on your dailies helps you feel better than continue to do so. I know that when I read the comics like this one on here I feel like I'm not alone in my feelings of inadequacy and it's not as hard any more.

Maybe it's the artistic temperament we hear about rearing its ugly head or maybe it's just the way some of us are but personally I'm starting think we need to set up some kind of support group.
More or less everything I could say has already been said, so I'll just say, you are awesome, don't ever change, no matter what.
your work is brilliant so stfu. /tenderassuringvoice
Yup, took me a long time (and my husband) to notice I think very little of myself and my abilities.

It's better, but I'm not "fixed" yet.

You are awesome! ^^ One day maybe I'll actually get to where you are, I have so many comic ideas and even one written out...I just need to actually work on it. -_-'
I'm of the opinion that everyone has some sort of metal illness, but some are more functional than others.
Stay strong :3
