Creativity in the Depths of Depression?
“During times of darkness, try to change your definition of ‘how’ you are being creative. Ideas and emotions are a HUGE part of creative expression. Let go of the expectation that ‘unless I have actually put something on paper or executed my craft, I am not progressing in my creative journey.’ If you can’t motivate yourself to ‘do’ your craft, then focus on getting well.”
