every time my rat pops her head from under my shirt i just look down at her and go “yo” and she just looks at me for two seconds before wiggling back under
"It’s the social economic version of “just stop being depressed”"
thats exactly what bothers me about “forget money follow your dreams” like lol ok poor people just stop being poor and do things start a business
just acknowledge we live in a capitalist society and that following a dream isn’t achievable for everyone like. be real. i’m a positive person but i’m not full of illusions about how things work.
Okay..I’m fairly certain this is concerning that comic because I read that same line in one of the comments and I think everyone needs to calm down about it. I’m not saying YOU in particular but everyone who took someone’s harmless opinion, which I’m sure was more just inspirational than actual advice, way too seriously. She meant no harm and she certainly doesn’t deserve the backlash she got when she posted her comic.
The artist obviously didn’t mean to impulsively open a shop for yarn or blindly go after your dream or passion or forget about money. She’s well aware that achieving your dream isn’t an easy task. She wanted to motivate people to not give up and she did! I read someone’s comment where they found her comic really inspiring…until they read all the comments people soiled it with.
I’m not saying you can’t disagree with her. Personally, I don’t particularly think the whole follow my dreams thing is for me. Not everyone can follow their dreams and yes that sucks a lot. Sometimes people have to keep their passions as a hobby or a project while they work other jobs, which is fine. Nobody’s a failure because they didn’t make it to their dreams yet or ever.
Basically what I’m trying to say is, cut the girl some slack. Cut ANYBODY some slack when they try to be motivating. And if you have to disagree, that’s fine. Just don’t tell the person they’re stupid or ugly or that they deserve to die or their skills are trash because of it. (Obviously this isn’t directed at you but to the anons that have harassed her.)
thank god my 200th post on my art blog isnt the porn one
