"Ahh your art is great, you’re a natural!"

Nah son it’s just years of practice and hard work.

"Oh my gosh you have a natural talent!"

NAH SON IT’S JUST YEARS OF PRACTICE AND HARD WORK. 

"You have a gift!"

SON.

So, I had to take an art class for teachers and we were taught this. We were taught to watch our words that might imply otherwise. If we have to draw on our board in the classroom, you don’t say “I can’t draw,” if you feel the need to say something, you say something to the affect of how you didn’t learn how to draw or didn’t practice enough.

one time when I was about four, the 10 year old neighbour boys attacked me with water guns and when I ran away and told my mom she gave me the hose and set it to pressure wash and basically told me to finish what they started  

update: when I told my mom about this post she told me that the boys actually ran to their mom to tell on me and their mom told them that they deserved it because they started the fight and let me continue to pressure wash her backyard and children
