23 year old artist, this is my personal, unprofessional blog. Nothing to take seriously, its mostly homestuck, art I like, conversations with friends and silly stuff.
>have a to-do list. write one first thing every day.
>include all the items you didn’t get done the previous day. if you got nothing done yesterday copy it all out.
>if you have a running project and you want to work on it a little every day, literally just write it on your list every single day. write it, work a little, cross it off. do it again tomorrow. repeat until done.
>develop an obsessive interest in the positive neural response that comes from crossing off items on your list.
If you relapse, repeat after me:
- You are not weak.
- You have not lost this battle.
- You are not selfish.
- You are not out of control.
- All the progress you made hasn’t magically disappeared.
- You are not a failure.
- Life is a cycle of highs and lows- good times are ahead, so keep going forward.
- You matter.
