I've noticed a lot of people who feel underappreciated, unnoticed, and who feel like giving up.  I mean, you spend five hours on a picture with high hopes that people will comment, favourite, or share, and then you post it and it goes ignored.

But the truth is all the other people who became the greats we know today were like this.

Adults hated Elvis Presley's music when he first started making it.  VanGogh's mother threw out cratefuls of his work.  And now Elvis is one of the greatest music stars in the world, and VanGogh is considered one of the greatest artists in the world.

You see, what's amazing is, they started out just like us.  Ordinary.  Not perfect at all.  They made mistakes, and they had flaws.  They are just like us.

So a word to everyone.  Never give up on doing what you love.  It may not be perfect.  It may have flaws.  But practice and patience pay off.  You'll be rewarded.  Everyone has their gifts, and if you love art, or music, or writing, or anything else, then keep doing it.  It doesn't matter if it's not in style, or popular, or if you're good at it.  If you like it, then no one else can stop you from doing what you love.  If people tell you that you can't, then find better friends who support you.  But never give up your dreams.

*hugs back* I'm glad I could help. I've used this to tell people who've expressed their doubt about their talents to me, and I thought that it would benefit everyone if I put it out there. Just keep on honing your skills, and don't let anyone stop ya!
