Default elphenor rebirthing extravaganza thread

after his failed romances and subsequent endeavour in coke and alcoholism, elphenor realizes it's time to start things over in a wholly new and healthy way.

in this thread we're gonna recommend proper ways of doing that.

way 1: read the Quran and become a devout muslim. Must pray five times a day and will go on Hadj soon. And in a way, this conversion is actually sort of punk. Take that, America.

way 2: elph becomes British and calls himself 'Elphenour', from then on.

Much like Thomas J Mace-Archer-Mills, esq, this guy, he will become a true anglophile and he'll feel so strongly about it that he will abandon his American roots and live like a Brit. Complete with the Bri'ish accent, milk in his tea, fox hunting and wearing a bowler hat for the rest of his days. Jolly good.

way 3: after ample soul-searching, Elph finds that his libtard views actually make him miserable and discovers that he is in fact a god-fearing, gun-toting, Trump-worshipping conservative. He'll cover his house in confederate flags first, but gradually becomes more and more conservative, his accent becomes so texan that no-one understands what he is saying anymore, he'll eat only red meat, opens beer bottles by shooting them with a shotgun, and finally dies from the sunburn side-effects of being the reddest redneck in history.

My advice as someone who survived extreme romantic heartbreak on a life-altering scale:

Do something creative with that pain. Write, play guitar, start bands, draw or paint, take snaps, invent new dance moves, etc. The intensity of emotion that u feel will inevitably leak into some of these endeavors in a way that makes your artworks more authentic and affecting. You may even make something magical that will become special/helpful to other ppl

Don’t wait until the pain subsides. Do it now while it reeeeeeeallly hurts, even if all u can do is sob/scream into your phone’s mic. Make something. And then keep making stuff, everyday

I'll be looking through your windows at night.
Watching you sleep
I will see you at your big game. Oh.
I'll be at the same parties as you.
And I'll meet you in the closet.
I'll follow you when the sun comes up.

Think of all the struggling artists out there with nothing much to feel glum about, picturing emotions as best they can to flesh out the work.

Get that torment onto a medium of some form before it goes away and the best you can offer is Monuments.

While I wish I could create art when I'm sad and do that whole romanticized "tortured artist" thing, the reality for me at least is that I'm not productive at all when I'm down. I just can't bring myself to do anything creative when I'm sad. If I try to force myself, I just end up associating whatever negative emotions I'm feeling with what I'm trying to work on, and it just makes me resent what I'm trying to work on and I feel frustrated, and I have to stop.

I can only really create anything when I'm in a good mood. I might use my foul moods for inspiration and write a sad song or something, but I have to be well at the time of actually making the thing.

Might explain why I never make shit.

funny. i only do creative things like painting and writing these days when i am depressed. it's just a reversion to things that used to bring me joy but i'd like to do them more often.

i did paint a picture for a mother's day gift and i wasn't too sad then. i was just broke and it seemed thoughtful.

make some sad audio recordings and listen to them when you're in a good mood.

I really don't know how the majorly depressed that seem heavily responsible for the arts can manage to even care enough to do it

"care enough" about what? some depressed people dgaf and that may be reason enough to create art.
