Don’t pressure yourself into making noise on the internet because you’re afraid of being forgotten.
Take your time & make something that will last longer than you will even if that means infrequent output.
Trends will get you there now, a unique and original feeling will last forever.
"A woman must continually watch herself. She is almost continually accompanied by her own image of herself. [...] She has to survey everything she is and everything she does because how she appears to others, and ultimately how she appears to men, is of crucial importance for what is normally thought of as the success of her life."
Now, accelerated by the pandemic, we spend much of our time living and conversing with others in a different location: digital space. But social media and messaging platforms weren't designed to serve as public spaces. They were designed to monetize attention.
The last problem is that if you check social media any time you feel a twinge of boredom, you train your brain to expect constant stimulation. It’s okay to feel bored! Boredom is a skill. The more you can tolerate boredom when you’re doing nothing, the easier it is to rest in deep thought when you’re facing a difficult challenge. - Michael Lynch
