----------------------- Hello everyone~ I wanted to share with you what I have found about Creativity and being Creative~ I am going through an Art-Block but it seems more widespread than I have thought, it might be in combination with something else too because it manifests a bit different in me than in others that I have seen and I do have it for around 2-3 years or a bit more now, forgot~ When I just think of doing something I get this feeling in my chest, my chest becomes very heavy and I breathe hard, something inside of me completely stops me from doing anything further, it is working against me and I can't get rid of it for some reason, it robs the will power, the strength away from me and the motivation to do anything, to even start~ Luckily I can think of ideas but I am blocked of realizing em because I cannot act unless I sort that out in me, unless I can overcome that what is holding me back then I can't draw or be creative any further~
The reason I got into it was that I might have done too much and burned out totally, I didn't know that such things existed at that time and especially didn't know how to manage when you begin to go through such things~ I want to fill the emptiness inside of me that was full once and gave me strength to draw or do other creative things but it seems that I cannot do it alone~
That's why I have written here so you all know of it too and help me with it~ Do you have any advices or even advices from people who have actually overcome such severe blocks~?
Thanks for your help if you do help, ahaha~ ^^
Here are some things that I have found out about Creativity, it might help you at least a bit too~ ^^
