Flighty, we like your vent art because you keep amazing us with the way you can express feelings. I honestly look up to you for that, and a couple hunderds of people share my opinion. It's not because we enjoy your sad emotions, it's because your talent makes us speechless. I just wanted you to know that.
I get where your coming from, I feel like this sometimes, because of my ADHD and Asperger syndrome. Maybe i just to make vent art. I hope you feel better. By the way, like your fursona's face, just the way it is. And I like you just the way you are.
*hugs you and puts you in my hat* as most people will always say this, I know how you feel I mean, a few years back, I struggled to act like other people due to my autism. Due to that I was very timid and wary of people. But now, after some counselling, I'm quite alright with life! I just hope you feel better, I don't wanna see my idol like this ;w;
people like vent art because well... a lot of people like bloody art and your vents tend to have a lot of blood, but in a more general view people are generally more creative and expressive when they feel intense emotions.
I'm so so sorry you've been going through tough times Flighty, I hate seeing friends be depressed or upset. qnq Honestly, I don't think people should want you to be something you're not, you're you, they can't change that. You don't need to wear masks to hide who you really are, if people don't like it, then fine! Who needs them? If they won't love you for the real you then they're just shallow and they wouldn't have been good friends/etc anyway. Flamey and Demond love you Flighty, they don't care for masks, they like you because you're *you* and not because of who people want you to be. All of us here on dA that are your Watchers/fans/etc love you for who you are too, and (probably almost all of us) have never seen your face or anything, but that doesn't matter, we love your personality, we love your art, we love you! And we all try to cheer you up when you're down and sad. I guess all I'm trying to say, is that who cares what others think, they'll think what they want but why should it affect you/us? If they don't like the real you, then they shouldn't like the fake you either, because the real you is *much* more interesting and fun compared to the fake version!
I hope you feel better, and that maybe I helped somewhat, I just understood that people don't like the real you, so I apologize if I thought wrong and it's something completely different.
i feel u. i hate being alone especially at school. but when im home i like being alone. and thats exactly what happened to me the other day. flighty those ppl who do that to u are jerks. ur very pretty!
Relatable. Maybe vent art is more popular because it's easier for people to nod and say 'yup, I feel the same.' then to look past the surface and find what an artist is trying to display in anything else..
I know how you feel Flighty :c you get so scared and you want to tell someone wants wrong and then you over think what they might say and that just makes you quieter and then they notice and they try to help you and you just get so scared that you want to lock yourself in the bathroom and scream...

I'd think that you're a good friend who needs to be perked up a bit, it's not your fault to have social anxiety or any other anxiety, I have social anxiety myself honestly, but it's more for the real world instead of on here. I've been in your shoes a bit and still kinda am, but if anything it's the people who really care about you that's opinions would matter and I want to cheer you up.
And for the people who like her vent art: It's not just drawing you know, it's feelings, suffering, and she's suffering, so you want to see her suffer?
Know this, Flighty, the people who care about you would be the people who'd want to help you, who'll cheer you up, otherwise you'd end up a depressed shit mike me.
I know you will have/get five million messages saying things like 'I know how you feel! I'm feel the same way.' and other various things along the same line. I dont want to be among the flock, but I feel I have to agree and say that I personally feel this. This last year I have felt so worthless I have been wearing constantly baggy clothes, rather large sunglasses, and my hair in my face. I know people say, 'hey I can take those comments!' I can at first..... then It really hits me later on. Having hip problems has left me with a rather bad limp. I feel people staring as I walk by.
So I have to say, I know how your feeling Flighty. <33
Awww Fligty i know how it feels to be alone...i want to create Friends but my face is just hidden behind a mask of dispare...this picture reminds me of who i am now who i'll forever be...but when i meet people like you, it makes feel like i have somebody. I wish you lived in the states so we could meet each other in person and become best friends. that would be very amazing to become your bests friend
I know how you feel. People only seem to like me when I'm a complete doormat. When I decide to "Be myself" everyone but close friends want nothing to do with me when I start standing up for myself and my friends, and expressing my opinion on things, everyone calls me mean, rude, or stupid. People only want to be around a person they have control over, it seems.
