  1. Fear of failure this may include fear of rejection or fear of not living up to one's own standards this can be reflected as self-doubt hesitation and avoidance of taking challenges.

  2. Self-criticism artists are often their own worst critics and may be excessively hard on themselves that connects with self-doubt depression and a lack of motivation to create.
