Sometimes we feel happy about our art, but sometimes things don't go the way we wanted. It's so easy to just give up and get in the procrastination mode. But we shouldn't let those distractions, those art blocks and lack of motivation to stand in our way. We should be stronger and carry on.
We can't control everything, yet we really want to. There is struggle in life, problems that come in our way.

How to boost the confidence?
If you feel that you are not good enough and you lack the willingness to make & post artworks, just because someone else is better, you don't have the right skill and there is not enough time, and there is no point in that... stop. You are good enough and you have everything you need and there is no reason why you can't do what you really want to do. Don't make excuses. You and only you have something valuable to offer to the world - your life experiences, your influences and creativity make you special and no-one else will do that in your place.
