I read an online article some time ago, one of those about self-discovery, become a better person kind of thing, there was a list of about 20 things to do to discover yourself. I remember this sentence well – let go of the need to be loved by all.
I can’t remember anything else, just this sentence stuck with me. And ever since that day I have told myself this a few times. Just like I don’t love or like everyone out there, I guess it is quite a natural and normal thing that I won’t be liked or loved by everyone I meet or interact with.
So just let go of the need to be loved by all! Period.
Great now that I’ve told myself that…let me talk about my painting. I finished this one some time ago and never posted it because I just thought it was not good enough. It’s all wrong and she does not look like me. Enter me saying – whatever possibly rolling my eyes!!
This was a huge step forward for me, to paint a self-portrait. It was a good learning too, both in art and internally for myself and my insecurities. It’s time to just share it.
I’m so glad I painted it, I’m also surprised I finished it.
This was the first, probably not the last time, I don’t know…..although I am not 100% happy with the result, I am 100% happy I did this. I learned so much through this process, the painting is signed so technically it is finished, but it does not mean I can’t try to fix the things I’m unhappy about. For now it will have to do ♥
