As a member of the LGBT community, you might’ve experienced being judged, rejected, underestimated, and feeling useless. Don’t do that to yourself. Gain back your confidence through DIY projects.

Finishing a project can make you feel important and satisfied. Accomplishing stuff on your own that you never thought you could complete is an amazing feeling. When you feel fulfilled, you’ll no longer have room for worry and negativity.

Appreciation

DIY projects also give you the chance to be thankful about the small things you have. You’ll discover that a table isn’t so easy to build. A garden bed may not be as quick to build as you imagined it to be. You’ll appreciate every piece of furniture and be grateful for the people that made them for you. And when you’re thankful, you’re happy.

Connection

Another advantage of DIY projects for you is that it is an avenue for building and maintaining relationships with others. As you go deeper in the arts, you’ll find more DIYers to befriend and be close to. You’ll share ideas with one another, have fun together, and discover stuff at the same time, making you that you felt worthless a week ago. A new set of friends can help you feel better, and DIY projects can give you that. Being part of a group will also give you that sense of belonging; that you belong in a group and you are not an outcast. You can converse normally with people who accept you, and you won’t have to force yourself to be included.

Goal-Setting

Finally, you’ll be trained to accomplish the goals you have set and actually be able to set another one you know you can complete. DIY projects are difficult to ignore once you’ve begun. You’ll notice the tiniest details in your home that requires improvement, and you’ll also keep building and creating just because it makes you feel better to finish something. DIY projects help you set your targets and make you more disciplined especially when managing your time. Continuously setting goals is good for you because you won’t feel like your life is useless, and you’ll have something to look forward to (your achievement) every time you set a goal.
