So many things about trying to come up in this business are so frustrating. Getting chops up without help or guidance, trying to make connections, trying to build a clientele of some sort. I'm getting so frustrated and feeling like all the hours I put into this are for nothing. I love what I do. I gave up so much for it. But days like today I just want to throw in the fucking towel.
I'm only 4 years in... so I can see that I am where I am supposed to be. But fuck, I get so discouraged. Not with my work, but the lack of an outlet to grow except for figuring shit out myself. Maybe I just need to take a step back or something and try to not have it mean so much.
Has anyone else been in this position in their career? Am I even making any sense?
