I also understand the pain of wanting to belong and feel accepted. But for the most part, I'm happy to be "strange" and "weird" and me. Those adjectives are all relative anyway --what's normal for me is peculiar to others, and what's normal to others is odd and typically boring to me; there's nothing wrong with any of those, because not everyone in the world can be expected to get along. However, there's always at least a handful of people that are so similar that you can all be your kind of "normal" together. So be happy to be unique and you, because you're the only you there is on this Earth and that is truly special.
(that is all a drawn out way to say "thank you very much for enjoying and connecting with my art; it really means a lot to me" )
You can't even imagine how much Your message helped me. I was about to kill myself(I've tried to do this before) and You lightened up my mind... Thank You for all this and ofcourse for Your beautiful and unique art that You bring to this world : )
Oh gosh, I should be thanking you for the +favorites, adding me to your +watch, and your taking the time to connect with my art! I know how it feels to want to kill yourself (it's an awful feeling and I really hope you'll feel better), but I still believe there's a lot of great and beautiful things in the world to see and experience, and most times when I'm feeling down I can remind myself about that and it makes me feel better. For instance, this conversation right now makes me very happy, because it makes me really glad to be able to help people in some way, especially if it's cheering someone up just by being myself. So thank you! And thank you so much for enjoying my art too!
