so I have severe MH issues which are being treated
I also have ME , so I dont have much energy
for a normal life

and I also have some issue
that everything has to be ' unconditional ' in my life
I think because things were conditional in the family
upon ' success '
I feel that someone has to step off the rat race
and just represent love to whatever extent possible

not that I'm good at it
but thats what I deem important
although I have no problem with other people working
the idea leaves me cold

and people say to me why not sell some of your paintings
make them into greetings cards
which would not be an enormous amount of work
but would involve ' selling ' something
and the idea of selling things leaves me cold

Have you ever posted your art on here? Selling something isn’t bad. Art makes people happy! They might be thrilled to find the perfect card to give someone else. Then you’re helping spread happiness.
Plus there’s a balance to everything. I used to think the same like money and work are antithetical to being human. But not necessarily. We can imbibe our work with passion and then we are doing good and we feel accomplished.

thankyou Esther

I'm trying to get the willpower to make some cards
dont want to post it on here
because of the same issue
that I'm here unconditionally , empty handed if you like ,

maybe if I can gather enough human-ness as you put it
then work could be built on that
but it seems far off at the moment
