Better Than Me by kevinbolk Better Than Me by kevinbolk
Read the NEWEST "I'm My Own Mascot" here: [link]

Oh, look. Indie Kevin is back. Delightful.

This is why comparing yourself with other artists (unless you're doing so for self-improvement, that is) will drive you INSANE.

Next: Sounds Legit

I know the feeling...... I STILL KNOW THE FEELING LOOKING AT YOUR DANGIT!!!
Why oh why do I torture myself?!
....
Right I remember that if I stare at it long hopefully I would have an epiphany.
Dangit.

Every day I want to punch my Indie self in the face and throw him out of my window, in which he will conveniently land in a river full of vicious, Louisiana alligators.

Too bad my window's broken.

Ya you see, that negativity behind you is what drives you to get better. believe me, That negativity will be your best push factor to get better. Someone else's art work is better than yours, take that as a challenge and rub in his face that you achieved what he said you couldn't! It can be stressful but its what keeps you going and working hard all these years. Take your biggest weaknesses and strengthen them. Make goals and plan out how you are to achieve them, as he says you will never make it, prove him wrong and be eager to fulfill your dreams.
Hey, every story has an antagonist against the protagonist you know?

aaaah the eternal struggle to become "better". You know? I really wonder how these people expect us to live with ourselves. By their logic I think we all would come down to the point where we all would be Genzoman's bitches. bizzare, odd, sad... but funny xD

I actually learned this lesson from a line in the Sara Barielles song "Uncharted":
Compare where you are to where you want to be, and you'll get nowhere
.

A very, very important lesson.
