Be alert.

In addition to many gains.

Like joy, pleasure, and fame.

As a creative, you face loss.

Loss of hope, loss of face, loss of money, loss of self-belief.

Flag and mourn the losses.

An artist who buries his pain over losses.

Will ultimately cripple himself into silence.

Let yourself heal.

Yes, loss scares us.

That’s why we run from grief.

But can we rise strongly while we’re on the run?
