This is taking a lot for me to be open about this, especially as a first post on here. I am generally a happy, positive person with a great joy for life. However I do deal with depression from time to time.
I know that there will be other creators out there that are dealing with issues such as depression. How do you deal with these sorts of things in relation to creating content?
I find that when I have an episode (every few months or so), I shut down and can’t really create anything, which can go on for weeks. By the time I am back, it seems that anyone that I was in regular contact with has moved on and become more popular and I feel I have to start again finding a network of people. I end up being stuck in a loop of this and I feel I miss out on getting to know some really great people and bettering my content.
Maybe it’s just me, or maybe this happens to others and I just don’t realise.
Do you have any tips or ways that you push through this so that you can continue creating?
