What I get tired most of hearing is you don't know what stress is. What could I possibly be stressed out about. Things could be worse. There are a lot of things in my life that has stressed me out. My life is not all unicorns and rainbows. I have gone through periods of anxiety and depression. It's not every single day but it's been a majority of the past two years. Most of it I can't even talk about publicly. . . . Yes I have a roof over my head. I have a job. I'm happily married and yes I have the two cutest kitty cats! But that doesn't mean that I don't have things that I don't stress out and worry about. My biggest one is worrying about my eyes. It's terrifying to know you have an eye disease that puts me at a higher risk of getting a retina hole, tear or detachment. Which could put my eyesight in danger. Knowing that stresses me out because there is nothing I can do about it. I have been trying to stay strong about it yes but there is nothing positive about it. Am I ever going to be ok about it? Definitely not. Am I going to stop doing art? Hell no. It's the only thing that keeps my mind off of it. Art and design is my livelihood. If anything it has made me want my dreams of becoming a full-time freelancer even more. I work my butt off and still feel like I'm getting no where. . . . I have had more people on Instagram understand and support me more than anyone I know in real life about what I have been going through the past two years. I just wish the stigma about mental health would stop. I know a majority of us struggle through life and that's why I wish everyone would be kind to each other. Quit the assumptions and gossip. It gets you no where. . . . The point of all this, just be kind to others! Everyone is struggling. What may not seem worse to others could be for that one person. Make someone smile!
Truth is powerful and it prevails. —Sojourner Truth (1797-1883) ✨ I’ve been reading the story of Sojourner Truth’s life. A true hero, Sojourner was a courageous voice for freedom and women’s rights. Her words and speeches live on, decades after she is gone. Some people we never have the honor to meet, but somehow their lives still deeply touch our own. She is one of these people. ✨ Pens: Pentel sparkle pens, blue, green and gold Paper: hp premium laser jet
~ dica: VOLUME x SOMBRA tem diferença! Muita gente confunde volume com sombra e vice versa.. a SOMBRA, é como se fosse um cntrl C cntrl V só que arrastadinho pro canto. O VOLUME, é parecido com isso, só que ligando os pontos na letra.. vocês querem que eu faça vídeos sobre isso?
