This ONE perspective shift changed my whole life... I always used to compare myself or my art to other people's art. This usually ended in me not feeling good enough, like I'm not good at art or singing or dancing or music or writing.
Then one day, that pattern changed. I made this ONE perspective shift and it changed my life.
Everything you make, every creative expression, is beautiful BECAUSE it has never existed in the history of ever and will never exist again!! AND you CREATED that. You are the one who brought it into existence. And since that piece of art or expression is completely unique, it is incomparable. It is beautiful because it exists.
Let that sink in.
Now, I rarely compare my creations to other people's art. But if I catch myself doing it, I always remind myself that whatever I create isn't bad or ugly, it's beautiful because it IS.
