Resist the urge to be a loner even though you love your own company. I am most certainly guilty of the loner syndrome. Give me a room, soft music, a pen and a sketch pad and I can be in there for days totally content. Throw in WiFi and you literally have to break the door down to get me out . This is not admirable and more importantly it’s not healthy behaviour. We are social beings, being social is not only recommended, being anti social is dangerous. For the creative mind it’s lethal. We need to share our thoughts with a trusted circle, we need people to support our dreams and our minds. We need to support each other and share our war stories. I have friends I connect with constantly who listen to me when I vent and also who lean on me when they are vulnerable. This support system means a lot to me and has helped me through many dark times.
Sometimes the creative mind can also create scenarios so vivid in your head it cripples you before you even take a step. Scenarios that are completely unfounded and rooted in fear. Sharing your fears with a friend, a trusted friend, a solid friend can restore hope to a creative mind and HOPE is the principle thing. Hopelessness is the root cause of SUICIDE.
