A Creative Person Without A Creative Outlet

I joined TikTok in 2020 just to see what all the hype was about and I ended up loving it more than I thought I would. Mostly because I’m really inspired by all the people who have passions like cooking, writing, sewing, knitting, etc.

I’ve always considered myself a creative person but I’m not necessarily good at anything creative. I can’t sing, paint, or draw. I taught myself how to knit and embroider but I’m just mediocre at it. And I guess I’m okay at writing, but I don’t really do it outside of blogging (which is more just like my head exploding into word form) and for work.

Sometimes I feel like I’m bursting at the seams to get something creative out of me, but I just don’t know how to do it.

I’ve been reading a lot more lately and realizing how much I love getting lost in a book. But then it makes me sad because I would love to be able to create something like that, to create anything really.

I just feel like I have all of this creativity, but no outlet or energy for it.

  1. Reading your post felt like it was me as I am exactly the same and enjoyed making some creative things for my young granddaughters over the last couple of years but deep down I’m a frustrated creative if that makes sense 😂

  2. I’m very similar in that my only claim to creativity is writing, which I’ve only been doing recently in the form of my blog. I used to journal a lot and have had a couple pieces of fiction published, but that was a while back. I haven’t published anything else in a long time and I honestly don’t know if I ever will try again. I like to watch TikTok but don’t feel very passionate about creating content there. Sometimes I wish I would take to the new video trend more, but I haven’t much. I do enjoy watching how other people create through video, though. But I’ve been hoping that getting back into blogging will help revive my creativity. We’ll see!

  3. Have you tired creative based classes? They could be your outlet; getting creative in little bursts. Pottery, painting, cooking… you could even check out local community colleges for online art classes–just a thought.
