Sometimes you see the works of the other people and you're just mindblown at how incredible they are. It's even worse when they're basically the same age as you. I'm all like...screw that I'm not even on the same level.
It hurts, but I guess that's why we keep trying, even if we look uncool at present. I want to believe that even if I am a loser now, some day I will be recognised for my effort. It's hard and you just take the small bits of recognition as they come, but in the end that'll take you somewhere. It's all about how much you're willing to put in and how many times you're willing to put it down to pick up a distraction.
Overcoming talent isn't easy, but I'm definitely going to try simply so I can see what it feels like to really stand out there with the greats :3.
Anyway, since the speech is over, come like my facebook page: www.facebook.com/WordOfChen

I`m often told it`s 'improving', but I don't see it and it`s like I annoy people when I ask how to improve so I`m like "Why do I bother?"
In the end, it is endlessly comforting to know that I am where I am now because I led myself here.
And who knows, maybe, if I play my cards right, I'll have the will to bring myself much farther than what natural talent has taken other people to.
Every day I see and meet people that seem to be better at everything.
Drawing,writing and even in school.
Then I really feel bad sometimes,I wish I had their talent,mind and creativity.
But in the end I can say everyone has something special,even if you don`t see it just yet.
The real art of life is finding your place in the world.
Something no one can take from you.
You are definitly a really talented writer judging from what I just read.
Keep up the good work and find your own way to be one of the best.
"El trabajo duro supera al talento, cuando el talento no trabaja duro"
Im gonna try to translate ..is somthing like..
Hard work is supperior to talent, when talent dosent work hard.
I dunno if im a bad/gut/great artist but i suffer for it. It is endeed very painfull to see someone who has it all and makes "i was bored" art and i go crash just to see it.
I have been unpopular and been called a looser far more that i can remember but the only, the only dammed thing that brakes me again and again is my art. Not to be able to put in papper the world that i imagine kills me.
People say to me..that i just have to chance to writing my ideas, and sell them to people that really know how to do them. But... my arts are like my babies ono I just dont want to give in ^ ^; Plus im so damm stubborn
Awww! Feels! :Heart: Though I don’t think it’s exactly a matter of being good or bad, you’re just developing your own skill. There will never be another Chenbeard, just as there will never be another Neondragon, Yuumei, or Apofiss. I don’t like it when people; others or yourself, consider you to be a ‘loser’. If they have a problem with you, then that’s their own issue. I hope you never let it get to you, I get the strong impression some times than you’re a lot better than you think you really are. And for the record, I think you’re work is awesome! it contains a sense of realness that not everyone can achieve, and you keep us all wondering what you’re going to create/do/write next. This poem was inspiring, attention-grabbing, and your poetic layout was really beautiful. The only thing I think that spoiled it for me a little bit was that last line..
I feel motivated now. :3
Incredible how you summed up my feelings about my stuff in your poem!
Even though I couldn't give up art for good ever, I'm too in love with drawing and bringing my ideas into life, many times I feel desperate (even giving up making anything for months) about I will never reach the level of others' ever. I am not envious (okay, sometimes a bit jealous ), please don't get me wrong, I am really glad those people could achieve that professionalism they possess, also becoming others' inspiration when they show us those wonderful bits of their world.
I only wish one day I'd become as good as the standards I set to myself. Self criticism even though is necessary but also can be a b... not a nice thing. :S
But the positive feedback from others, looking back to our old works and see the improvement, see that you can draw/paint/make what you couldn't even a month ago, and even though it's more difficult if you are not incredibly talented but when you can actually see the results of the so hard work... Those things can be really encouraging and in my case can make me continue.
Thank you for your words and for make the opportunity to express my feeling about these things to happen.
But kudos for never giving up I guess, that's the first step towards success.
