Why I Hate Everything I Make

I can certainly relate. I also create/design things for a living and of boy do I get the same feelings every single time I create something.

It’s an emotional rollercoaster where everything from self-loathing to “damn I’m good at this!” feelings come and go. I’ve just accepted that it’s the way it goes. The way the process works I guess.

It scares me sometimes how much the creative state of mind can change. Sometimes I can create a number of cool things in a relatively short time. Then there are those times when I really struggle to get a single creative thing done. Completely drawing a blank.

But I guess what always drives me back is the process itself. Even though it’s hard, it’s also highly rewarding (well, usually!). I do it for the love for the process, “the grind” so to speak. I cannot think of myself stopping doing this. No matter what.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
