I am struggling today with this- feeling loved. I was having a really hard time with this painting, and every time I put on a layer that I thought was a mistake (and yes, I know: no mistakes), I kept putting myself down (pretty sure I called myself fuckface at one point).
Because of this, I feel like an absolute failure at the whole self love thing, which then makes me wonder if I am getting anywhere with it. Maybe I don’t need to get anywhere. My ego keeps me stuck. It keeps me searching outside myself for answers, for love, for permission, for sanity.
So I keep painting to remind myself that I am loved.
“I am loved”, acrylic on canvas, 5″ x 5″ $140.
