When someone is crying, of course, the noble thing to do is to comfort them. But if someone is trying to hide their tears, it may also be noble to pretend you do not notice them.

This is important.
The sign of a beautiful person is that they always see beauty in others.

Be kind to yourself. Stop telling yourself that whatever you are struggling with “should” be easy. If something is hard for you, it is hard for you. There are probably reasons, though those may just be how you are wired. Acknowledge these things. When you finish something hard, be proud! Celebrate a little.
And really, just stop saying “should” to yourself about your thoughts and feelings in any context. You feel how you feel. The things in your head are the things in your head. You can’t change either directly through sheer force of will. You can only change what you do. Stop beating yourself up for who and what you are right now–it isn’t productive. Focus on moving forward.

Enjoying art is like enjoying fruit. You don’t need an education to know which fruit you like. You could travel around the world and become a fruit connoisseur, learning about growth, sun, hydration, wind, soil, transportation, nutrients, combinations, chemistry, ancestry, but you don’t need this knowledge to enjoy fruit. The same goes for art. Don’t let anyone tell you you should “know more” before you can form an opinion.

Feeling unsure and lost is part of your path. Don’t avoid it. See what those feelings are showing you and use it. Take a breath. You’ll be okay. Even if you don’t feel okay all the time.
