I don't know that it's Offbeat or Weird, but it is something I would like to discuss or at least write about. I don't have to do it public, but I want to share it for a good number of reasons.
I BELIEVE A GOOD MANY SUFFER the burden of a heavy load (EMOTIONS) for whatever reason. How do 'WE' let it go? IF you decide to post ... Please show some COMPASSION. Thanks in advance.
First of all I give you a <3 for bravely opening this question.I BELIEVE A GOOD MANY SUFFER the burden of a heavy load (EMOTIONS) for whatever reason. How do 'WE' let it go?
I think those who post the controversial and deepest questions - statements on here - are all artists on the soul level. One has to be devoted to their art/cause to risk ridicule or disbelief. To argue the reasoning behind that stance.
[Exception's of course given to the the inflammatory, troll posts]
Art is based in emotion.
Van Gogh to Poe the greatest of these seems to suffered the most with their emotional burdens. Named demons or depression, without the muse there would be no artists.
Now the question is - it a blessing or a curse?
I did some research -
"Everyone has emotional pain, some have less, some have more. Emotional pain is something we all share. What we do with it and what it does with us is the art and the work. Therefore, we are able to relate with emotional experiences to benefit our life. We are moving our life toward a conscious awareness of what the emotional pain is asking of us, as we ask it to go away." - By Steve Lee"
How do you feel about that statement? Would you agree or not?
