Oh Dear, it's complicated

When I say something is complicated, it means something is seriously wrong beyond the border of the internet. Don't worry I'm alright.

Over the past few months, I have observed a development in myself which is increasingly troubling me. People used to admire my positive attitude and optimism, but lately I realized that this is no longer the case. An unknown force of negativity and pessimism spread within me.

Especially in the last few weeks, I noticed that I was more and more often considering my own work and personal well-being as insufficient although this was not the case, at least in the beginning. Every kind of creative work lives from the mental state of the one who makes it and bad influences show up very quickly in the quality of their work. Many negative experiences and setbacks have done their rest to me. Under these circumstances, I can not continue my work and life as I have used to do it.

There is need for change!

I will work on new things in the next few weeks. I will have to learn a lot of stuff, and I will get into new habits. I will also deal with myself again and systematically fight the source of my problem.

It's time for a change!

The external design and photographic projects will not be affected by this. I am only deprioritize all my own projects, apart from Instagram, to create the necessary space for this.

I will change!



PS: My portfolios will be rebuilt when I'm done. Until then, head over to behance for my recent works.
