how do I stop comparing myself to other artists help me mollysoda <3

that’s a tough one i do it all of the time and get really down on myself, when i first watched the re’search by ryan trecartin i got so jealous it was ridiculous but then i realized that i should be inspired and motivated by other artists instead of jealous or wishing i was doing what they were doing

think about what you have to bring to the table that’s different and focus on that, taking inspiration or ideas from other artists is fine, and remember nothing is 100% original so if you focus less on trying to be completely original you’ll end up feeling less stressed out and probably producing work that you are proud of
