katimus_prime: Lyrics from Covenant: https://youtu.be/yBS6WaS0Sfk (Cherenkov - Brave New World)
It's really hard for me to un-learn that my friends don't just like me for my art or my writing. For a long time, I only liked me for my art and my writing, too. I have a scrolling combat text addon in my head that just ticks down my self-worth every time I make a decision that alters my fandom routine.

"Worthless"
"Worthless"
"Worthless"
"Worthless"
"Worthless"
"Selfish"
"Selfish"
"Selfish"
"Selfish"
"Selfish"
"No one cares about this"
"You're ruining everything"
"You're ruining everything"
"You're ruining everything"
"You're ruining everything"

*hugs* I like you because you're a good person and the awesomest best friend, and I also like your art and writing on its own merit because it's awesome too! I can sort of understand tying your self-worth to your creative work or fandom presence, though. I know tumblr has kind of turned everything into a hyperjudgmental drama circus, but fandom shouldn't have to be something you feel bad for. I think all your fan stuff (and original stuff) is really cool, even when it's for something I don't know much about. <333

It is. :E And same--I think tumblr's format makes it particularly easy to internalize certain attitudes and messages that get repeated often. My internal monologue was getting all tumbl'd up. D:
