[YOUR ART IS BETTER THAN YOU THINK IT IS]

I’m terrified that if i can’t create something of meaning, then i don’t even exist . I am constantly failing to measure up, humiliated to be ‘not quite good enough’. Sometimes despair causes me to be tempted to become destructive and hateful just so i leave a mark. I feel disposable. I need the courage to grow, the faith to try. Is there a sigil for that?

[NO BLOOD WASTED // FLOURISH WHERE YOU FALL]

Anonymous asked you:
November 5th 2013, 7:49:00 am · 5 months ago I’m terrified that I’ll never break out of my perpetual cycle of procrastination and loss of interest, and as such never do something big enough with my art to make up for the debt I owe the world. The prosperity that’s given me the ability to become the person I am now and do the things that I love is rooted in my grandfather’s work buying combat aircraft for the Army during the war in Vietnam. I’m surrounded by people whose ancestors my family helped to murder and I don’t know what to do.

Milestone Reached: Glyph Requests Open!

To submit a glyph request, go to problemglyphs.tumblr.com/ask

There are currently over 200 glyph requests waiting in my inbox. I’ve been thinking about it a lot, and I believe I settled on a good compromise that makes sure the existing queue for glyph requests is preserved, but gives new people a fighting chance.

The system is this: I will alternate a queued glyph request, with one chosen randomly by a number generator. Meaning one request from the current lineup, and then one random request, alternating. I hope that makes sense.

I’m currently fighting off some strep throat so milestones are taking a little longer to fulfill than I anticipated. A laser printer for the buttons and candles is on the way, and those should be in the store by the end of the week!

[YOU WILL LEAVE A WAKE]

I’m in the process of breaking up with my boyfriend of about a year and a half+. We never fight, but I don’t want him as more than a friend anymore. I’m trying to keep up communication through this because he’s not in a very good state at the moment and seems open to the idea of continuing to talk to me. He says he’s reverting back to an old version of himself when he could barely function socially. I feel like it’s my fault and I should never be in a relationship again to avoid hurting people.
