Everyday Mystery and Wonder
home message archive theme





Parent, your kid is actually trying to practice a talent, a skill. You may not think the arts are worth anything but you as a parent are failing your child right now by speaking to them that way. It is you who are dragging the world down.

If a parent has said anything like this to you, take to heart they are wrong. If you are passionate about something, keep at it. All skills and trades are more than welcome and the last thing we need is more negativity. 

This sounds like my dad. He said the same exact things almost word for word when I was in art school. And people wonder why I don’t stay in contact with my family.

Her speech patterns are very similar to that of my mother.

They have completely different voices, but the inflections and the use of rhetorical questions and the insinuations are very much the same.

wowee what a huge cunt!  comparing watching TV to playing a guitar… i can’t believe that.

my mom at least tried to encourage my talents… while telling me to never pursue them seriously because i would inevitably fail because no one gives a shit about art.

That’s horrible. D: My parents really didn’t welcome my interest in art either. They always told me I would end up homeless.
