My struggle with art.

Cry

Posted 10th June 2011 77

I want to be able to draw. I want to be able to paint. I want to be able to sing and play guitar and piano. I want to be an artist. I like doing things that I am good at. This is why I like math. This is why I am a nerd, but this is aside from the point. Acquired skills such as drawing and painting and sculpting and playing instruments and writing music take an enormous amount of practice, but how am I supposed to practice and be satisfied with myself if I hate doing things that I am not good at. When ever I try to do something easy that I ultimately end up failing at, like drawing a simple picture, I obtain this massive sense of depression. I feel like an inefficient machine. However, at the same time, I aspire to do these very things that I fail at. I feel trapped. I often get depressed and become dangerously jealous of people very close to me.

Long story short: How can I practice the things I want to be good at if practicing them causes for me to be emotionally compromised?

Got something to say? Post Now! It’s totally anonymous… rant or confess about anything!

Go have a cry, then get over it and keep trying. If you aren’t willing to do this then perhaps you should just give up and move on.

Keep in mind that not everyone can be an artist or musician. It’s possible for some people without innate artistic abilities to learn how to draw or play an instrument, but that doesn’t mean that everyone can learn how to do these things. Some people just have no talent for these fields, just like not everyone can be good at math no matter how hard they study. You might be a mathmatic wunderkind but that doesn’t mean you’ll be good at everything.

I have the same issue with singing….I used to be great, but some experiences caused me to become nervous and now, let’s just say I’m jealous of those who are potentially not as good as me or how I used to be. I hate doing things I know I’m not good at as well…but if this is what you REALLY want, pursue it! Get a coach, they will understand you and won’t make fun of you and help you get better! And honestly, what is talent? Everyone has some sort of talent within them. What matters most is determination and skill acquired after practicing to the limits you didn’t know you had; people with so-called ‘talent’ will find that this ‘talent’ has diminished when they have stopped practicing (personal experience), so get a heads up and get motivated.

When you go into something, don’t have high expectations. This way you’ll be satisfied no matter how far you get.
And also, who says what’s artistic and what’s not? Cooking can be an art form. Even something as simple as rollerskating can be artistic. Find something that you’re good at, put your own flair on it, and anything can be art. :)
