Wobbles in Crafting
This approval thing that I seek to be seen as a valid human being has to stop - I know that. I shouldn't care what others think of me and what I make. It is very immature of me to keep wanting others to like what I am doing and ultimately like me too. However, it is very deep seated within me. Somehow I have made a warped connection that if you don't like what I make then you don't like me either. I have no idea how I have made that connection other than my creativity is an important part of me.
Anyway, sorry to be rambling on this fine but cold Monday morning. I had no idea that I was going to spill my feelings over the page. Creating may have to be pushed aside today as I have bed linen to change and a pile of ironing to be tackled. Perversely I quite like ironing and find that pressing out the creases in the fabrics is quite cathartic.
