I'm fine by DestinyBlue I'm fine by DestinyBlue
This. This. This and This again.

Story of my life at the moment. Not because I don't want to talk, because I can't. Some things you have to go through alone. My piece Paint your Wings by DestinyBlue was also inspired by my situation, though there is more hope in that image... things have got tougher recently. I am very lucky to have some very close friends I can confide in including my beautiful Moogle :) I appreciate and am so thankful for them. Sorry I can't share more online...

Its such at odds with my personality. I'm an eternal optimist. Anyone who knows me or has met me at a convention knows I love to laugh and it takes a lot to get me down, unfortunately this is. Well, its inspiration at least :)

One day I'll be able to tell everyone everything's not fine, but for now,

I'm fine.

------------

Edit: Wow, never thought this would capture peoples imaginations like it did, it's almost a meme XD
Yes, I am the original artist, and no, I didn't copy anything else. I know there's loads like this around now but there certainly wasn't when I drew this :)
I love that so many people were inspired :heart:
If you use this as inspiration I' love if you credited, that way I can put you in my special favorite folder: destinyblue.deviantart.com/fav…
Oh and things are a lot better for me now thankyou :heart:


Peace, love and post-it notes,
~Blue x

oh...this is sad, feels-touching and a good drawing at the same time...
One of my friends is a little emo and whenever I ask her if she's okay this is basically her reaction...it's like she doesn't realize how I care about her.
Good job with this drawing, I'm a little glad it was able to touch my feelings like this.

Theres one thing missing. Between I'm and fine you need a word there. It should be not....

Very true, we all may act fine on the outside so we don't burden others, but inside, we cry out for support and love... A very powerful picture.

That is me towards everyone around me. I just don't want anyone to get dragged into my problems and worry about me. I lie every time I say "I'm fine." When really I am not fine. It hurts me to lie to them, but it's for the best.

I've been there, where you just put on a brave face to try and get through the shit life throws at you, were people don't understand and you just let them think you're fine or they assume you're fine. Yet you're broken inside.

Holy shit.I'm gonna try to be a bit softer since I don't know your situation and you're art can be truly nice and skilled,and I don't want to hammer you on that.Your art Is adorable yet you also are experienced with some different style(s).

But I just don't get this context,and I don't get why people always make this kind of thing as If to express their emotions through some simple,over-used message done by some simple,over-used  method of visual narration.

I have nothing personally against you and I have no Idea what your current situation Is,but without being too much of a dick and just trying to tell you something because of the art you made with this context : Atleast make something that makes me think :"Damn,that's some emotion."

Shit do I know If you are doing this kind of thing for yourself or for the rest of the world,there are people that do and even If you wouldtell me you're just doing It for yourself and no one else,I still wouldn't exactly know If you would be telling me the truth or not,since nothing can truly even give me a hint with this art.

You don't need to change for me,If you were,you should do It for yourself.But I am In no state of supporting these kind of pieces because wether It's anime or some unfancy photoshop photo done by a lot of angsty teenagers and young-adults,they're almost all really shallow.If you truly only had a paper mouth,then how come you're crying since that would wet It (I'm just saying this objectively,nothing figurally).

Again I don't hate you,and I am sorry If I do come over as a dick but this kind of stuff truly Is nothing praise worthy In my opinion.People who make this crap are again,angsty teenagers who go to deviantart to make dumb art about how people In the "lame,real" world don't know anything about the Internet or go to tumblr to whine about how uncultural people there age are and how dumb and unworthy their schools/societies are (These sites are just examples,but It really happens a lot.These sites both can have good things,though).

I've been like that : Talk bad shit about my oh so terrible life just to make myself different from all these other teenagers while I honestly was at the same time just as worse like them (If they even were) for thinking that way.

You know what,summary :"If you are going to make art to explain your emotional complexed situation or life and you really just need to "draw" It out,or any creative activity that will help you just bring out your word and let people know that some things are "not okay",atleast make It better then just some piece of note paper In front of a girl's mouth with a smiley on It to reference to a masquerade of hidding your true feelings.It's been done before,you could just as easily upload that kind of stuff here,link to the person who made It and you're done.


I know I sound like a dick.In more of my comments,I do.Why?First,this Is Deviantart and there truly Is some dumb art here that Is accepted by everyone because everyone wants to support each other.But supporting each other Into the wrong way Isn't that much of a good thing.Being nice Is something different from that.

So,I'm sorry for that.I'm sorry for sounding like a dick,even though I mean the words I wrote.I am not nitpicking on you,I just wish for rather you to know that because you are one of those people that makes things look nice In your work and I just wish to give some feedback differently from "oh so cute" or "I understand you,this,you're strong".Those comments are Innocent,but they are here so much that I wonder when someone will give good feedback for someone to actually GROW In their work.

Again,sorry,but please try to understand what I'm trying to say here.I don't hate you,I really don't.Your art Is,once again saying It,really nice and has It's own kind of flare.

Goodluck In future work!

...pain is how we know we are still alive, it also gives us a measure to compare the joys of life. I hope that you have found joy, and if you haven't yet, that you keep trying. Have a good day, and enjoy a laugh or two.

Still love your work; writing about this one and "BrOKen" for a college essay on a piece of art that unsettled me. :) Even in a world where vulnerability is not always accepted or valued, there is nothing like real, raw emotion and no one can deny it. Sometimes in the midst of so much pretense a bit of honesty and reality is just what the world needs.

This. 
I wonder why other people's happiness mean more than their own. It's almost like an instinctive reaction. 

*Person crying* 

"Hey, are you okay?" 

*Slow nod* 

"I'm fine."

I took a selfie like this once. I thought it was a good idea to put a smiley on a post it and put it on while you cry. Kinda made me laugh because I felt ridiculous.
