Of late, I find the people around me being in various states of "emosity", being upset due to family, relationship, friendship problems, illness, feeling lost in life, death of loved ones etc.
It always helps to keep an open mind because more often than not, many of our problems are perceived as how our minds want them to be.
Besides keeping an open mind, keeping an open heart is just as important.
Many people stubbornly clam themselves up after some setbacks and refuse to think about their problems or any unpleasant situation in any other ways except the way which they want to see it. They sometimes blame the whole world for their problems without stopping to think whether they have any part in perpetuating the unpleasant situation as well.
To these people, sometimes I just want to grab their necks, shake them and yell at them, "WAKE UP YOUR DAMN IDEA!"
You will continue to sink and fall unless you keep your mind open. That's the first step towards helping yourself.
My mind isn't exactly in a tip top condition recently too and I was inspired to draw emo pictures just now. However, when I took up my pencil, I drew this and have been feeling better ever since.
I also tried using water and brush on these "water colour pencils" for the first time. The background isn't what I was expecting, the proportions are skewed but who cares, I felt better and that's all that matters.
