Or, the person could become more determined to prove the discouragement wrong.
Wow,so powerful,love it.Thanks,Gavin.
This reminds me of what Scott Adams (Dilbert) once said: “Never underestimate the power of a kind word.”
This is a repeat. Good. Some things are worth repeating. This is one.
Yup. Love is the best fertilizer to promote growth.
Artists are sensitive and need encouragement.
. . . thank-you for this encouragement for future artists. It is important to draw for enjoyment, though if you can make a career of it, great! If, it is just a hobby that you enjoy, then that’s good, too. Walt Disney once lived in my father’s hometown and he was encouraged by a local doctor. So, encouragement can come from anyone. Thanks, Gavin. I enjoy your art. :) http://www.cravescavesandgraves.com/2014/07/marceline-missouri-main-street-usa.html
I just read that Shel Silverstein’s dad strongly wanted him to stop wasting time drawing and to prepare to take over the family bakery.
It is the joy of a parent to become the cheerleaders of the next generation, and see them go where we could not.
