I have seen how a lot of artist seems to have a lot of problems in their life and how they mop about it thinking the world is against them.
I never seem to tell people I have problems with mine or even ask for anything in return, but I always wonder why and how this happened to those misfortunate or those who are even telling the truth cause its the internet for sympathy.
But you know, I do have problems...on a daily basis.... I am a leader of a whole shop, I take care of all the maintenance of my own work center and all the people who go through it every now and then, keeping an eye on their work, habits, goals, and outside activity. I have to talk to them and lead them how to fix and operate equipment proficiently and safely by the book and it all comes down to the QA and audits if I ever do a good job or do what I am suppose to do.
But the small things I always get in trouble or even bothers about issues like funding, training, missing reports, and sometimes skimming procedures to quicken the pace of man hours spent. I get a salary than be paid by the hour and I love my job even though its not art. I work 5 days a week with medical and dental, a worce force who will protect me and my people of who I work with, their paying for my home and everything. But I have to show that I am worth their time by giving it back with results, I have to pull out ideas and keep my brain moving everyday even on the weekends when I am not working.
Through this I still will go through bumps in the road, my car breaks sometimes, my computer go through bug troubles, my friends get into arguments, or one of them is going crazy over a relationship. The normal everyday stuff, I have to call my family once a week to ensure I have not forgotten about them and that I love them. When in japan I was only able to even see a glimpse of my family once a year and go to sea on a isolate deployment for a whole 6 months without calling them. I get yelled at for not doing what I told and could possibly get my pay cut in half for doing the wrong thing.
My job could even get people killed if I don't do it right, if the maintenance isn't done well it could break and possibly break other machines or the people around them.
I work hard, as hard as I can to make sure I am on the ladder, I don't like to show weakness or state that I am in trouble, I can deal with my own problems and if I do I will see through it.
Nothing will ever get done if you don't try, and if you fail you try again in a different way, but if you give up then it will never get done or near complete. Many famous people had to try a million times, failure, after failure, after failure, until something sparks and it works.
So for those who are depressed and think the world is upon them, seriously, fight back, Be stronger, Their is so much out their and if you think you can't, your not trying hard enough.
