Vulnerable Confession #3

✖️Vulnerability Challenge Day 3✖️

Ever since I can remember I’ve been a visual person. Always artistically inclined even if it wasn’t in the most conventional of ways. When I was younger I remember redesigning the front of my binder more times than I could count and filling the walls of my room with new collages monthly. I’ve actually had to have tape hidden from me because I’d go through it so quickly. It wasn’t until about a year ago that I really started owning my creativity. For a long time I didn’t completely put myself or my art out there because I scrutinized it until I hated it and would feel shame from it, so I’d hide it. The scrutiny taught me that nothing is going to be perfect when you send it out there, and until you let go of what others think, you’ll be stuck in almost greatness. Imperfection is what makes us human.

This isn’t an easy task, this is somehting I fight to overcome constantly. I’m still the type that likes affirmation from others, and it’s something I want to work through. I want to own who I am and the work I produce without that voice in the back of my head saying I’ll be made fun of because of the work I’ve put out there.

Don’t wait for perfection. Make something today even if it sucks.
