I don’t write or create animation or gifs or edits for praise. I do it because I enjoy doing it, I love sharing my animation and edits with the fandoms and public because it makes me happy to do so. So when someone compliments me out of the blue for no reason at all other than to be kind and friendly, it means the world to me. All it takes is two minutes to say how much you enjoy someone’s art, or how much you loved their writing. I try to practice this whenever I see something I like or read something I like, I take the time to appreciate the effort, time and talent that went into it.
The next time you see something you like, or read something that inspires you or moves you, send some love towards the artist or writer because honestly, it really does mean the world to feel appreciated.
