Whether we believe it or not, we are not alone in our struggles. Life can get so busy, so confusing. We get lost in figuring out who we are and what we want to accomplish. The moments in which we do not know the answers to our own questions can be some of the hardest to live through. The point is that we live through them and we grow through them by connecting with others and with ourselves, by listening and supporting others’ art, and by creating our own. We give to the world what we would like to receive back, and this is how we get through the unknown.
