Is not caring.
The last couple of years I've been struggling with drawing regularly, probably because I've always been under a lot of pressure from myself. Everything had to look perfect, be original, and good enough to be put in a portfolio, eventually. I was so scared of messing up and always ended up unsatisfied with the end result, I just shut down and stopped trying. But that has changed, lately.
I don't know exactly how it happened. Maybe it's because I'm older. Maybe it's because I feel good living my life the way I do now. Or it might be because I've been inspired by things I enjoy. (Thanks, fire emblem) Nevertheless, I've been drawing at least once, but usually more, every month for the last year, and I couldn't be more happy about it. I stopped worrying. If I want to draw this piece of fanart, you bet I'm gonna draw that fanart. If I want to draw self indulgent things, I will draw it, because who cares about what others might think? If something ends up looking nothing like the way I wanted I upload it anyway, and usually when I look back on it, months later, I come to the conclusion "This doesn't even look that bad, why was I upset about this in the first place?". Now I've decided I'm not going to pursue a career in art anyway, I might as well have fun drawing, right? I'm doing this for myself, and if others happen to enjoy it as well, then that's a nice bonus. 

So my advice: Just draw. Don't think, draw. Because if it isn't fun, then why continue? 

Heh. That said, I usually upload all my art to tumblr. Despite what you might think, it gets a lot more attention there than it does here. and I won't deny that recognition feels nice I won't leave dA though, and I'll keep uploading my art here as well, since I like having it all in one place. I have accepted the fact that I'll probably never be as active on here as I once was, but I'll keep doing my best to reply to your nice comments.
Keep doing what you love guys.

I'm glad to see you've found a new self-inspiration as I am still looking. I wish you the best old friend(:
