FEAR OF DOING ART
“One of the most ferocious forces that weaken and distort artistic expression is the fear of making a mistake.
No one enjoys making a mistake, and some mistakes lead to real jeopardy.
But in the arts, more often the fear is one of seeming inept, unprepared, an amateur, a fool. This harm to our psyche is no less real and damaging than a bodily injury. As a
consequence, uncertain of our actual level of competence, we stay far away from exercising the full range of our capability, and potential."
