How is a person supposed to get better if they quit?
if they stopped and quit trying
how do you expect to get better? huh?
Just because a person or a lot of people is better than you, that doesn't mean you will quit, I mean, they're not telling you to quit, and some of them will even try to help you get better!
If you feel demotivated because of jealousy of the skills of other people, don't just curl up in a ball forever, yea you can cry for a moment but you must stand and show them what you got
"I'LL SHOW THIS SHITLORD THAT I CAN DO BETTER!" -internally
Take it as a challenge.
Don't you want to be happy? Do you like telling people that you are hopeless and then you will feel sad and the people you talked to will feel sad too?
"You are inspiring and it makes me want to do better!"
Doesn't that sound better? It doesn't just make the person you're telling to, feel better, but it specially makes you feel better as well!
Art is no competition, I looked up the definition of the word and there's no sense nor speck of definition about doing better than everyone else.
Art is expressing yourself, Art is creation, you make Art because you love Art. And if you suck at something and it makes you feel bad, find another thing that will make you feel good about yourself, that will make you proud. What's important is that you're happy.
and if you come to me saying "But its so hard!", stop. Nothing is easy in life, if there are, its not always easy, there's always a hard part, an unexpected hardship, but getting through those hardship is what makes the most of us, its like a test, if you fail, its either never to take the test again or study and retake as many times it would take you to ace it, and if you pass it, its not just having an achievement that you passed it, you also learned and you can apply your newly learned things, while on the other hand, if you give up on the test, nothing will rise from there, maybe you can do a special project or take an alternate test, just keep moving forward.
If a huge obstacle suddenly pops out of nowhere in front of you, don't just stand and start crying because you can't go through it, find a way around it!
