Frustration and fear will block us, they can be like roadblocks on our path.

If we are trying to do something that we aren’t naturally good at we feel frustration with it and quite or not even start. For example if you are not very good at writing and need to write a four page essay, you’ll feel frustration if you start to write it. It won’t be easy. You won’t start it if you know from past experience that it won’t be easy and will be frustrating.

Fear can hold us back too, if we fear something that is a part of what we are going to do we will avoid doing it to avoid the feelings of fear. For example if you fear rejection and romantic loss you’ll procrastinate looking for and finding love, because you have been hurt in the past and don’t want to be hurt now or in the future. You are scared of the feelings you may get so you don’t do anything. You procrastinate.

To get away from procrastination we must simply accept that there may be feelings come up that we don’t like, feelings we usually turn away from, feelings of frustrations or fear, but that’s fine that means we are getting out of our comfort zone and growing. Feel the feelings if they arise, if they succeed at getting you to stop what you are doing or not even try then make another attempt at it, keep trying. Know that doing these things will be worth it, if you can get past frustration and fear you’ll find some peace and joy. You’ll have more self confidence and more self esteem and you’ll know that these feelings don’t have to run your life and you’ll be free of them. You’ll be free to accomplish what you like and do what you need to do.

I hope this helps.

Haven’t posted in a while, and I realised that I haven’t drawn Bob or Pipes yet. Shame! Shame on me! I love both these guys! (And also Sunstreaker, but he’s had lots and lots of fanart).
I think Pipes would have found Bob at the least really neat, with his whole open-mindedness about wanting to go explore and find new things. Bob, for his part, probably finds people about his size whose hands aren’t much bigger than his little grabby ones, pretty interesting too.
I know some of the regular sized autobots were a bit put off by Bob, so I don’t think it’s a stretch to assume some of the really tiny little guys might have even been a little afraid of him. He’s smaller than the average dude, sure, but he’s still got more mass than a lot of the minibots. It’s hard to see because he’s quadrupedal and usually a bit squat down on the floor, but he’s probably equivalent to what- a lab, for size comparison? That’s pretty big when you’re the size of a 4-9 year old.
So here’s a Pipes being delighted to meet Bob, who’s delighted and curious to meet a Pipes.  
(Sidenote: will be using the old askblog to reblog art for those who just want to see that. May still answer asks sometimes, but I figure this is a better way to use that account, since its stuck as my primary. It is now called slogarts)

You don’t need anyone’s affection or approval in order to be good enough. When someone rejects or abandons or judges you, it isn’t actually about you. It’s about them and their own insecurities, limitations, and needs, and you don’t have to internalize that. Your worth isn’t contingent upon other people’s acceptance of you — it’s something inherent.

You exist, and therefore, you matter. You’re allowed to voice your thoughts and feelings. You’re allowed to assert your needs and take up space. You’re allowed to hold onto the truth that who you are is exactly enough. And you’re allowed to remove anyone from your life who makes you feel otherwise.

"Dad was, is and always will be one of the kindest, most generous, gentlest souls I’ve ever known, and while there are few things I know for certain right now, one of them is that not just my world, but the entire world is forever a little darker, less colorful and less full of laughter in his absence. We’ll just have to work twice as hard to fill it back up again." - Zelda Williams
