Oh good. I'm using fictional characters to vent. That's ALWAYS a good idea, isn't it? and TOTALLY not a way to make them OOC of anything.

Ok so this isn't a "boo hoo hoo. No-one luvs me." picture.
As I always do, I tend to post a lot of journals talking about stuff I like, and I'll draw fanart for stuff I like and on Facebook I'll share and talk about inane stuff I'm into or find funny. But more often than not very few people have anything to say about these things. Now that's not really a big deal. Whatever. But for some reason I've had this little voice in the back of my head for a couple of months now where, if I do ANYTHING that isn't like, mlp art which usually goes over well, it pipes up and goes "No-one cares!"

I'll write a journal talking enthusiastically about something and it'll pipe up going "no-one cares about this stupid crap!" or I'll get an idea for something to write about or to draw and it'll pipe up with "Who are you kidding? No-one gives a shit!"
And then, if I do put up something I'm passionate about or I'm talking about something in my personal life and it just goes by without notice, the most common line that goes through my head is "I guess no-one cares."

That little voice is really becoming a problem @___@ and don't take this as my way of saying "PEOPLE SHOULD LOOK AT ME BECAUSE I'M SO DAMN IMPORTANT!". This is me battling with an inner voice that's found a way to really beat me down and make me feel bad. My long time watchers will know I've been having a long battle with my inner voices trying to find different ways to make me unhappy, or doubt myself or just make me feel shitty.

"No-one shares your enthusiasm." "No-one has the same interests as you do." "No-one is interested in what you love to do." "No-one thinks the same way you do." "No-one gives a crap if you're unhappy about this." "You're being narcissistic in thinking it's something worth being unhappy about."

So I drew Discord.
Because at least he's a character with interests and likes no-one in the show cares about either.

Oh hey look! a background! Hory shet!

Sorry for being whiny guys XP I hate complaining about my feels. Sometimes I just need to address them or I'll go nuts.

:star: Thanks for the feature EQD :heart: :star:

Shall I bash that inner voice over the head with a pool noodle till it shuts up?

Sincerely yours,

You know, for being a chaos-themed villain, he was quite predictable. 
I fell in love with this picture the moment I saw it, I've felt like this a lot too so I can oddly connect with it. Fantastic job

I think this is something a lot of artists have to deal with, I mean, even the biggest, most famous names have to deal with this. I mean, take William Shatner, for instance. Other than being priceline guy, or more obviously, Captain dang Kirk, how many people know his hobbies and loves? In fact, I think you're dealing with this even better than he is. He in fact writes a lot of very self-centric books, and those are one of the reasons it's actually rather easy to find out about him, because he makes it very easy.
You're not writing 12 autobiographies, you're just explaining your feelings. And that's totally understandable. You're doing great.
I just want to say, the phrase "no one cares" or "who cares?!" needs to die, and burn in Hell.  I mean, clearly SOME people care if whatever it is is being brought up, right?

I suppose so ^^; perhaps a better phrase would be "No-one ELSE cares."
Ranting aloud is, I think, one of the best ways to calm down. Who cares if people think that you're whining, let out your feelings whenever you feel like it. And who cares if people don't care about the art you feel like doing/posting, draw and post whatever you want whether it's something that you're proud of or just something that explains what you were feeling at the time.
