I contradict myself 🤫

Cognitive dissonance – The term cognitive dissonance is used to describe the mental discomfort that results from holding two conflicting beliefs, values, or attitudes Reference

I started thinking about this term because of a video that I watched back in March about how musicians contradict themselves in their song 😅:

Video 1. Artists contradict themselves compilation

I didn’t know there was a term for this experience, I remember feeling that discomfort but not being able to put words to it 😵‍💫.

Finally… | Por fin…

(ENGLISH)

Finally I did it!

For days now, I have been thinking in posting something but my fears don’t allow me. I think that I have to write something formal, something useful about Illustration and writing those posts takes time, that’s why I have been avoiding it.

When I created this blog I agreed with myself that it would be something fun, something I enjoy where I could feel free to express whatever I wanted. I just wanted to pour my thoughts and feelings but my mind turned it in something formal 🧐 again and this caused me to feel paralyzed😵‍💫, anyways, I just wanted to break with this fear and write whatever I wanted and say Hi! at least 🤗.

(ESPAÑOL)

¡Por fin me atreví!

Ya tiene días que estoy pensando que quiero poner un post pero mis miedos no me dejan. Pienso que tiene que ser algo formal, algo que ayude a las personas en su proceso de ilustración y hacer esos posts me lleva tiempo, por eso lo he estado evitando. Pero, recordé que cuando hice este blog el punto de todo era crear un espacio donde fuera libre de escribir lo que quisiera, mucho o poco no importaba, sólo verter mis pensamientos y sentimientos, pero mi cabeza lo volví algo formal de nuevo 🧐 y esto me causó parálisis 😵‍💫 en fin, sólo quería pasar por aquí a romper con ese miedo 😊 y decir hola 👋, ando por aquí trabajando.
