I'm interested in a specific art hobby as a beginner. How long do i sit on this idea researching it before I jump in? The cost is a small to medium concern; I am employed but would like to save. I'm also feeling loneliness, depression and anxiety and a hobby could help right? From my track record I am an impulse buyer. I also fall into deep depression where I don't do anything but sleep (which the hobby is to change).
Pros: Starting a new, fun hobby. Creating art. Possibly making merchandise that is of value.
Cons: Spending money while trying to save. Challenges that come from starting something that is not mandatory.
Worries: I won't act on it at all or I will act on it too soon and waste time and money.
I would really appreciate your kind input and questions to work this out. tysm
"Alas, I turn my back. There is a world, elsewhere."
That is a quote from Shakespeare's Coriolanus, in which the main character is not at all being heard out, feels betrayed, and just turns his back on the situation entirely. Vengeance and allying himself with the enemy follows, but that isn't important. I often come back to that one quote.
An entire year for me was hell after a break up. At some point I remembered this quote, and it gave me reason to pursue hobbies, interests in writing, and just the multitude of other things that are available for us that we can't see when we are heartbroken.
An entire world exists other than the depression, sadness, frustration, and all the other negative feelings that are present when someone leaves us or vice versa. Just turn your back on the break up entirely because often there is nothing else that can be done or should be done.
I started writing(Selfish Mind, about how to improve oneself physically, emotionally, and psychologically) now it's been one month and 12 days, Started a hobby of learning Guitar, Working on my coding skills, etc...
