Message for Artists Confessioners

Journal Entry: Sat Dec 8, 2012, 3:40 PM…

As my text, pictures, and actions obviously doesn´t make people stop doing this.
I hope my words reach you.

I suggest you turn down to the LOWEST volume, and I mean it. Because when I´m upset my voice get´s so pitchy I sound like a duck screaming in your ears. I´m sorry.
I tried my best to collect myself through the whole video. But I´m just heartbroken.

This confession pulled the trigger.…

I put all my emotions into that. I was crying insanely for my best friends [my trusty bird and two doggies, all at once] that was dying, and for other personal problems.

I usually never post any vent, because I don´t like to bring people down.
But I´m only human. I´m sorry I´m not a perfect robot.

I know other people also get affected by the posts. They might not be as sensitive as me, but I speak for everyone.

I´m a normal girl like anyone else. Please stop with these confession things.
You can gossip how much you want with your friends. Talk shit, or lie. I don´t know.

But don´t post things like this in public.
It´s just as painful as if someone would post mean things about you in your school, and put
it in a place where whole school can see it.

How would you feel afterwards? Especially if people start to agree with the post.
Or to just get sudden hate from a person you never spoke with.

Sorry, for this post. I´ll move on and be better.
But.. for now It is so much, I´m sorry.

That's fucked up.
Yamio, don't listen to them. Don't let them cast shadows over you. You are strong, uplifting, and very influential.
Your personal life is nobody's goddamn business. Nobody's, unless you choose to share it with them.
I wish I could take my own advice. It's hard to follow when everything you do is being picked apart by vultures..
You feel like you're being watched, and it's almost threatening. I have lost so much respect for my art and myself because of them, that I have stopped drawing.
They can turn you into something ugly, something that you didn't know you were capable of being. You are strong enough to scoot over into the light, I know you are.
I have seen you do so many times, and you handle yourself maturely. But just keep in mind that you have so many watchers and friends that are there for you.
Don't let a small amount of haters rain on your parade. Keep all your supporters in mind and turn a blind eye to anyone that wants to destroy your happiness.
If someone sends you a link to artists-confessions, or any gossip website like that (more are popping up lately..) just ignore it. Don't click on it.
Imagine it's a big red button that can blow up your mood in a split second, because that's exactly what it is.

You don't know me, I don't know you, but I think you're honestly capable of becoming something great if you just work at it, be true to yourself, and stay positive.
Best of luck to you, Yamio.

No, no, Yamio. Don't apologize for being upset. Being upset and having emotions is normal. Whether or not people like it, people have emotions and not all of them are happy ones. People are just very insensitive and don't understand. If drawing helps you vent, then do it. You shouldn't have to stop doing it just because someone didn't like it. The truth of the matter is that people get sad. People are sad a lot. It's an emotion and it can't be helped. So don't apologize for what you're feeling. The person who made that "confession" should be ashamed. I hope you feel better, sweetie. :hug:

kdsajfksldj as soon as I heard you crying my heart broke ;___; I'm sorry Yamio<333 I hope it gets better. I know being critiqued comes with being an artist, but I think that instead of being rude to each other and putting each other down. We should help each other and try to make people better artists and support them. The art confession blog is just a blog for people who aren't confident in their own art so they attack other people. Don't let it get to you<33 I'm always here for you ; w ; You may have a couple of haters, but you have tons of admirers. I'm sorry this happened to you. you're a very sweet girl and I hope people stop picking on you but I don't think they'll ever learn. I hope you feel better<333
MegLuka Featured By Owner Dec 14, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yamio-san dont feel sad that person probably is being jelous of your art because rest of great artists happened to be like this :\ that person was rude indeed,
you are a great artist and theres no difference for that whenever anyone says those thing just ignore.
keep drawing. you can draw what you want to and there are not rights for that person to controll you.

hope you feel better :iconcutiesmileplz:
ScarletMarie Featured By Owner Dec 12, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Wow, if the person who wrote that confession can't suck it up and accept the fact that people have emotions that they like to vent somehow, then they need to close their laptop, unplug their Internet, and crawl under a rock.

I've done one or two vent arts in my time, (neither of them posted) and I have to say it's a great way to release emotion that could easily backfire if held in.

I really, REALLY do hate this artist confession page.
marbledcat Featured By Owner Dec 11, 2012
Yamis... I hate to hear you cry like that ; ;
I can't change all of their opinions, but I can tell you to just ignore them and things will hopefully clear up. I know I'm a bit of a stranger here, but if you need any advice or anything I can help ;^; I've been through, and am going through, a lot, and I know how it feels to have someone so emotionless to go around and say your sadness is an act, and to have lots of people agree. They'll move on, but the pain will stay, the best thing to do is to try and cope with it for now TAT
Your voice wasn't so bad, you were just really choking up♥

hey, don't be sorry. it's how you've been feeling. the real person that should be sorry is whoever posted that thing about you. it's sad that there is people out there who actually think that the people who are sad or sad at the time are faking it just to get attention. it's not true. people are sad or depressed and they can't help it or something made them sad and at the time they can't control and just let it out. it's okay to be sad, even when you are mostly happy all of the time, everybody gets sad and they should've realized that and that drawing was a way for you to let out your emotion that you were feeling. and also the fact that they were anon when they posted it that just shows that they were chicken and couldn't face up to what they shared, knowing that it would get back to you. so don't be sorry for ranting or venting anything. it's okay to feel that way. and no one should tell you otherwise.
KitsuneMuffin Featured By Owner Dec 10, 2012
Asså vad in i helvete??

Strunta i dom Yamis .__. Detta är EXAKT vad dom vill, att få dig att må dåligt och sånt.
Du kan fan inte hjälpa att du är populär och en söt själ.
Sen det här med "vent" art... Du ritar ju inte sånt 24/7, och jag hade hellre velat se dig rita sånt än att få höra att du skadat dig själv! Att venta är ett skitbra sätt att få ur sig sin sorg eller ilska, så det är fan inget man går lös på och klagar på.

Seriöst, strunta i dem, dem förtjänar inte din uppmärksamhet, haters gonna hate.
Men kom ihåg, haters make you famous ;) :heart:

Aww this is awful. It broke my heart to hear you crying like that. /hugs/ You are an absolutely wonderful person, so dont let anyone else tell you different!
Im also very sensitive, and I've been bullied before and so when people say such hurtful things, it hurts me a lot. And its even worse when people join in. I feel your pain. ; -;

I don't mean to be rude I'm just curious. what are your reasons for venting your emotions online? I'm not blaming you, I wanna know what's your perspective on it ^^;
Yamio Featured By Owner Dec 10, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
Deviantart is my most precious and happy place! ;; <333
I did this when I was very upset, or else I would never have done it
But I put up this video to show people that I´m a real person behind the monitor
And that the words hurt me
And I see these things

Hopefully some people will realize this
And stop putting out confessions that is directly towards the person like that ;w;/

You are very sensitive so I hope it doesn't bother you anymore. It is very saddening to hear coming from such an amazing person, if writing journals makes you feel better do it :). I don't want to her you be sad at all Yamis, love you and hope these people who obviously have no hearts lighten up and realise what they;re doing to such a kind person <333

Don't listen to OP. OP is a twat.
If they can't understand that you're human just like the rest of us, and you have the right to have emotions, then they should be shot right off the face of the earth.
There are way more dramatic people in the world, and the fact they used you as an example only means they just generally don't like you or are jealous of you.
If you pay attention to those things like Livestream your feels or post journals, then they aren't going to quit. Once you start ignoring them, they'll get bored and move on.
Wingsie Featured By Owner Dec 9, 2012
well....i actually just want to ignore this ..but ithink i should tell u my opinion....

u are not the 1st person to be the target of this blog..& surely not the last..
so...what i need to say here is just one word "IGNORE"
melody kimmy,tokyogirl,marmaladecookie etcetc ... many of our friends were targeted..& from the experience of their case...ignore this & think of that as nothing is the best way
u tried to do these things...hope to reach sure its useless & things would get worse
if they have eyes, ears & brains...they wouldnt do this from the beginning & stop doing this a while ago...what i want to say is they are just bitches who are eyesore losers & getting jealous all over ppl who has more reputation than them...those attention seekers....u did all these journal or videos will just make them feel more satisfied
also...acting like this mean u lost to words mayb rude...but u should behave more mature...all is for ur best
hope that my words wont insult not ontheir side & totally against it...but there is nothing we can do to stop this shit going around & so...the best thing to solve this is seeing nothing really happened...instead of getting upset over this....use ur time to do something more useful to you...going out & treat urself something nice....cuz there are always haters...but still...there are ppl who love u for who u are & ppl who know ur real person..& i can say for sure that these ppl are many more than those haters
Wish u the best : ) :heart:

Don't listen to them! I'm not just saying this, I really mean it.
You are a great artist. I don't really know you, but I read your posts and I watch your art.
As I can see you have never hurt anyone! So please- I know it's makes you sad but try much as possible to ignore those stupid people who make you feel bad ..
Try to focus the people who like you and your art ! ^^
Don't cry ; As much as you are talent there are more people who get jealous and just saying non-sense.
So.. Keep calm and carry on :)
-Oh and sorry if I have any grammar problems ._.-
Fallen-Gravity Featured By Owner Dec 9, 2012  Student General Artist
Yami, I just watched your video and I can't believe those people said those things about you, and made you cry. I know I've already commented on this, but I just want to like you know that they really should not have done that. I agree artist confessions can be painful, because I had one of my pictures on my old account on Tumblr, and someone said it looked awful, and put it as one of the worse Homestuck OCs, which really got me mad.

But, getting back to the subject...I really do hope you get better, Yami, and you have a cute voice, don't listen to those people that say you don't have a mature voice, I think you do have one. Also, you have lots of supporters and fans here to support you, so again, I hope you get better, Yamio, don't listen to those jerks on that Artist Confession site. They're just being jerks. :icondragoncomfort:
CM-Illustrations Featured By Owner Dec 9, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Yamio, that's awful! :saddummy:
I feel so angry that this person wrote such a horrid post! You don't deserve all this hate, I may not know you, and we may not speak very often, but you've always been so nice and kind, I think it's understandable to be upset, this person needs to realize that not everyone is the same, and that some people are more sensitive than others.

Personally, I feel this is something they should have gone to you about directly, instead of posting it on Artists Gossip Confessions.

Don't let it get to you though, just know that you have many wonderful supporters who admire and love you for who you are, have a hug, hugs always make people feel better :iconsweethugplz:

I really hope you feel better soon Yamio! :huggle:

Strunta i dem, det finns alltid folk som vill trycka ner andra. Det finns ingen annan än du som vet exakt hur du känner, ingen annan kan förstå hur ont du har just nu. Även om du förklarade så skulle de säkert inte förstå i alla fall. Läs inte vad de skriver, läs bara det de som bryr sig om dig skriver. Jag tror inte att du gör något sånt här bara för uppmärksamhet, och om du gör det, vad spelar det för roll? När man är ledsen eller inte mår bra så behöver man få någon sorts uppmärksamhet; man behöver få ut det, prata med andra, annars går man i bitar. Jag lovar att de är värre personer än du då de lägger upp sån här skit där andra kan se det. Så länge du gör rätt för dig och är en bra människa så tycker jag inte att du ska vara ledsen. Ta hand om dig, jag hoppas att vi kan få läsa en glad journal efter det här ;n; <3
thegayestelf Featured By Owner Dec 9, 2012
You kinda ARE overreacting a whole lot here, it's the internet, grow up and stop leeching asspats from your fans. I'm probably younger than you and it's safe to say that you are acting like an immature brat.
Your crying makes it even worse, which is the only reason people feel so pitiful towards you, if you can't handle one measly confession posted about you, you might as well quit the fucking internet whilst you're at it.
Yamio Featured By Owner Dec 9, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
I put up this video because I wanted to show people I´m a real person with feelings.
If I had waited a day I would never have uploaded it as it is embarrassing.
It is not just this confession. I have had 4 confessions about me in these 2 days.
I also have alot going on IRL but I won´t get into detail. But I think if you are mature you can understand when people point out things to you it can hurt. It gets to much at one point.

I don´t only speak for myself when I spoke here. I know plenty of people that have cried over these things.
My hope is when people see this they realize I´m, and all other "popular" or what you want to call us, artists, are real people.

I can handle quite alot of hate, I have been through before. But this time it went overboard with all the confessions.
Especially when people criticize your sadness over best friends that was dying.
I´m sure if you have a dog or whatever and it was dying, and you was crying. Then people say "Stop being such a brat, you are overreacting"
Wouldn´t it hurt?

And it might just be the internet for you, but not for me. This is were I am when I want to be happy.
This is were I share the thing I love the most, art.
Deviantart and internet means a lot for me. And when I come here I don´t want to be met by negative things.

I know I´m a crybaby and I´m sorry. I usually never show my tears for anyone, more less in a video.
But I´m not immature for showing my feelings, I´m only human being. I hope you can accept me like that.

Thank you.
thegayestelf Featured By Owner Dec 9, 2012
We know that you are a real person with real feelings, you don't have to prove that, but you're going about the entirely wrong way. If you want to prove something to people, you'll delete this journal and continue on your way proving to people that you can withstand the hate. Right now you're making it no better for yourself.

It's nothing but a post and you have to realize that, it's only going to hurt you if you take notice of it which is adding to your problems.
Personal problems can't go untouched, but if it takes some stress off of your back perhaps ignoring it is ideal.

Yamio, up until a few months ago I didn't even know who you were, your popularity doesn't matter a shred to me. (And I only found out about you because of Puni and Loli) that's why I talk to you so mutually.

I can understand that you're upset right now, but in all honest you aren't making it any better. The confession that was posted about you WAS praising you, which is why I'm telling you that you are in fact overreacting. I'd say the same to any of my other friends if I thought they were overreacting, just like I did with Puni.

My dog is dying, but I pull through and spend every moment of my life happy instead of crying about it, my best friend died of cancer when I was eight years old, but you just have to keep plowing through the days happily.

Then if you love art so much why not ignore it and continue what you do best at? From your vent art I see that you can make wonderful things to get rid of your sadness.

No, you're not a crybaby. I can understand if you want to let it all out sometimes, I just know that the internet isn't t he best place for it.

Being harsh is just one way to help someone, I do it a lot. First to be noticed, second to help someone because as you know a lot of supportive comments aren't read that often. You have to withstand my first comments and watch me do something miraculous I guess, lmao.

Thank you so much. You are so smart.

Hnn I won´t delete the journal as I stand for my actions
But I will move on the best I can and continue to be happy

I will try to ignore it!
Hnn yes I know it was praising my art
Therefore I feel like such a stuck up baby crying
But it hurted when it was such a sensitive picture, out of all pictures
That was shown.
And the other confessions too ugh. And IRL problems. But yes you understand.
Sorry I´m rambling.

Thank you so much, I don´t know your age, but you have some wise words
Thank you :iconsweethugplz:

If you want to keep the journal up that's fine, I don't plan to bug you about it.

Well, at least you understand that and I'm glad to hear it. Nah, you're not stuck up, just a little... out of hand sometimes? I understand that emotions can be overwhelming sometimes.

It's okay, really.
KokoTensho Featured By Owner Dec 9, 2012  Student Digital Artist
Wow you really ARE rude to say all this, you know some people are more sensitive then others. She can cry if she feels like you know its better to let her vent than hurt herself, if you dont like it get the fuck out please. No one is making you stay and read this. No one needs comments like this when they're feeling down, and who cares if your younger than her you're acting like a brat right now and you just joined today congratulations on making a fresh start ass hat :iconmingplz:
thegayestelf Featured By Owner Dec 9, 2012
Oh, I almost forgot to mention, she's crying over a post that was dignifying her too. The vast majority (Or every single one of them) so to speak, were in support of her and in her favour. So technically speaking, she has nothing to cry about... whatsoever.
thegayestelf Featured By Owner Dec 9, 2012
No, just stating the obvious. Yes, some people ARE more sensitive than others, but that doesn't give any kind of excuse to roam around the internet crying like a two year old.
Yes, she can vent through art, but crying on Live stream isn't going to make it any better now is it? unless you enjoy sucking up to her.
'No one is making you stay and read this' and right you are, but just to give a little hindsight I'm always here to help before drama disperses and Yamio gets herself into even DEEPER shit than she already has, don't you reckon that's a fair warning? c:

I'm acting like a brat by telling her to up her attitude because she's one out of thousands of Deviants that have been confessed about on Artist confession who don't go out of their way to make a journal about themselves crying on Live stream? Wow, you need a reality check. She's overreacting, you and I BOTH know that. She can wallow in her sadness for all I care, but perhaps if you don't want to help her by kissing her ass some more instead of letting her know what reality is, then you can do that.

Actually... I've been on DA for longer than you have sweetheart, I just thought a new account would be a fresh start, but what does that have to do with absolutely fucking anything at all?
You're making yourself look like an idiot, please stahp.

Hiya Yami. I know I'm just a new watcher you do not even know, but here I go:
When I heard you cry, it really made me sad. I understand how much you are going through. <333
Please stay strong. Try your best to not let this get you down, this is mostly what haters try to aim for. (Hurting people/making them butthurt) I think it was brave of you to express your feelings through art. Many people cannot do this, and keep their feelings locked up in a cage. Wipe your tears away and be glad about how strong and brave you are since YOU can tell people how you feel. You are brave for speaking up for others too. Very little can do what you do Yami. Always remember, you have friends and supporters to help. <33333
get well soon yami <3

I know it's hard not to pay attention to these types of trolls but they will always be there as long as..well...forever! Try to pay what they say no mind, because there seems to be an endless sea of trolls for each popular artist.
Personally I think it would be wonderful if you put different kinds of emotions into your art, I guess some people just doesn't appreciate people having feelings =/

And fyi your voice sounds so cute why are you embarrassed haha ; u ;

HEY guess what? You're human and sometimes when people see their idols behaving human they loose a few nuts in the head. They tend to believe the people they idolize are always supposed to be rays of sunshine... People in general should be rays of sunshine. Only THEY ARE allowed to be human and be sad sometimes... THEY are the robot seeking perfection they can't find within themselves. They don't have the guts to say what they have to off of anon so dont let it bother you. Until they have the guts to say their thoughts face go face they are not worth any sadness. So smile.
