I painted this one during my live streaming & ended up talking about how I have often ended up at events & gatherings alone where I don’t know anyone else. As I was painting the flowers, I felt to add this one lone stem with these little prickly purple flowers on it. I started to say this, “Hi guys! Can I come to your party? Do you mind if I hang out here with you for a little while?” As I painted it, I felt like I was adding myself to this party of people that knew each other really well and were having a good time. I’ve had to just walk into their circles, introduce myself & just trust that I would be accepted. Not everyone will accept you & I’ve learned to be ok with that. You’ve just got to keep trying until you find people who will. One thing that has helped me in those situations is tel myself, “Everyone here wants the same thing. We all want to be loved & accepted.” And then see where the party takes me
