Don’t be shy
How can you retain your self-expression in a world that’s growing more conservative every day? Well, if you choose to be an artist of some kind, you need to express yourself. You don’t have to be right, you just need to be honest about what you’re feeling the moment you put pen to paper. If you’re shy about a piece of art or and an idea, do the art anyway. Remember: you don’t have to show it to anyone. The important thing is you allowed yourself to get it out of your head. This will lead to more things coming out. It will unblock doors and put an end to procrastination. As an artist, the worst thing I can imagine is simply not being able to express yourself because of the fears and concerns of what others will think. Just do it!
