How to Join, Rules, and Affiliates

:bulletred: We will NOT accept pieces that talk about suicide, or planning your own suicide. This is detrimental to our members.

:bulletred: We will NOT accept graphic pieces. In other words, mentions (or images) of blood, wrist-cutting, scars from self-injury, and the like.

:bulletred: If your piece talks about struggles with eating disorders, please do not be graphic about your descriptions. I'd prefer a more generalized approach, and please avoid using the word "fat". That word is highly negative and triggering for eating disorder sufferers. Also, we will NOT accept images of emaciated (boney, very skinny and unhealthy) bodies.

:bulletred: If you use profanity, please attach a Mature Content Filter.

:bulletred: You may submit up to 5 deviations per day. Please, do not submit your entire gallery. Submit only your best works.

:bulletred: Please, submit your artwork to the correct gallery folder. (A list of gallery folders is shown below.)

Also, NO NUDITY!!!

Do not submit artwork such as: sketches or unfinished drawings and paintings; grainy or unclear photographs, literature with misspellings or slang abbreviations (like lol, wtf, omg, etc.), and stamps that lack transparency. These will be declined.

:spotlight-right: Our main focus here is anxiety disorders, so naturally, your art that you submit here should contain elements of anxiety. However, we do have a set of gallery folders in which you can submit positive outlooks on anxiety, as well as general artwork such as: photographs or stamps that invoke calm and positive feelings in anxiety sufferers. :spotlight-left:


If your deviation is denied, a staff member will let you know the reason.

Literature
Anxiety
Adreneline pounding in my veins,
My breath shortens,
And heart quickens,
My body screams for me to run,
But at the same time
Begs for me to be still
I keep the tears spilling from my eyes
and try to calm my heart
But I cannot.
My knees buckle
and my body curls.
And the tears begin to flow.

Anxiety
I never expected this to happen
But then, no one ever does
I guess I expected all too much
And now I wish it could be
Back to the way it was
I wanted it to be something great
For you, it could only be that way
But it never followed my plan
So I\'ve screwed up all over again
This is just another mistake
I don\'t know what you\'re thinking
And I don\'t know if you care
But I put my heart into this
I did the best I could for you
And life still won\'t be fair
All I can do now is hope
Hope you\'ve appreciated my effort
Hope that I can finally have you
Yet no matter what I do
I still get treated like dirt
It\'s already been awhile
And you haven\'t said a thing
How do I know what to do
How do I know when to stop
If you don\'t tell me a thing
Why must I be like this
Why try when I\'ll only fail
My dreams are full of hopes
My life is full of holes
And I can never prevail
So tell me how you feel
Don\'t worry about hurting me
Be as harsh as you can
How else can I learn the truth
If

It seems like for a little while submissions weren't going through.  Even my own didn't show up, so I'm guessing a lot of people may have tried to submit without success.  As of now, it looks to be working again.  So if you have something to submit or re-submit, I think we're up and running.

And as I mentioned in the previous journal, I'm the only admin around at this point, but the only access I have is to accept or decline (and write journal entries).  Since it's just me, I may not be able to keep up with all the submissions, but I'll do my best.  Everything will be accepted unless you submit to the "Featured" or "Favorites" folders.  I'm reserving those for now, so please don't submit anything there.

Thanks!

I'm not sure if this is the right platform but, I enjoy art and creating and I have been longing for a place where I can express myself...I have been pretty lonely and my depression has recently surfaced causing me to ask a lot of questions about myself and life in general. This constant questioning has left me feeling empty and alone. I want to find a place where I belong.....I feel so lost in the world and I've never really fit in anywhere. I currently have no friends (never truly had good ones at least) mostly due to my social anxiety and everything has just been eating me up lately. I want to find a community (whatever that truly means) a place where I can meet like minded people, a place where I can feel safe and comfortable, a place where I am not alone....I long for belonging...and I am sure this feeling comes from lack of confidence in myself..and I am trying very hard to combat that but it is so hard with no support around you...
I don't know...this is probably stupid and won't be seen but i thought I would try and get these thoughts out of my head and out there somewhere in world....

I have anxiety because I don't have the awareness that people like me or not.
