I Care

I thought I had run out of things I like about myself, but my friend gave me a new perspective the other night. I was bemoaning how much stress I put myself through unnecessarily because I worry and analyze and overthink everything. He said “but it’s because you care” (or words to that effect). He said he didn’t believe I would be a good artist if I didn’t feel things more intensely than most people. It made me think.

Would I want to be the kind of person who always keeps on an even keel?

It would be easier, for sure, but maybe it would mean I didn’t live my life to the full – and maybe it would mean I couldn’t create. And that would really suck.
