Apparently all 4's self sabotage-- I know I do. But how do we break that cycle of feeling helpless and actually succeed in our respective fields or areas of interest?
For me, it's specifically with my artwork: I work mostly with watercolor and leather (not together), and find myself stuck all the time procrastinating and becoming discouraged. I think part of this is that I work from home (no outside studio) and balance these interests with my vintage Etsy shop. For some reason working from home is hard for me-- you would think I'd love it as an introvert, but I wish I just had one or two other people around to talk with as I work. Sometimes I can't even get myself to start, like today: I checked email, ate breakfast, and have been doing otherwise stupid, unnecessary organizing of my shop photos, etc. Then at the end of this kind of day, I'm so mad at myself for not doing something. It's a feeling of not knowing where to start, or being lost.
I believe @brainheart said this in another thread, that I can't find at the moment (I actually wrote this down):
"It's been my experience with myself and all the fours I know, that we are all healthier when we step away from self examination and act, especially in a creative capacity, instead."
Ugh, I know that to be true! I've experienced it, but it's like every day is an individual battle for action. Do any of you deal with this?
