C.C.: All I have left are my memories from when I was a witch. Other than that I don't even know if I was ever human to begin with. Every person who has ever hated me, and each and every one that has shown me any kindness are gone forever. They vanished into the current of time. Always existing with the endless flow of eternity, I am utterly alone.
Lelouch: You are not alone. We're each other's accomplice. Therefore, if you're supposed to be a witch, than perhaps I should be a warlock.
Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion, Episode 25, "Zero"

'Cause no matter how far apart we may be, we've made a connection that will tie us together forever. Our hearts are linked to the people we know we can trust, and that trust gives us the strength to go out there and find our true self. As long as you are true to who you really are, you'll always have one of us by your side. None of us will ever be alone. No matter what world we're in, we're all connected.

Don’t forget.
Always, somewhere,
someone is fighting for you.
As long as you remember her,
you are not alone.

Jinbei: You still haven't lost everything yet! Now affirm it! You have not been left with nothing!

I told you something when I first took you on, didn't I? Huh, Rokutaro, boy? And that was, no bragging about how tough you've had it. We all got our troubles. You ain't the only one.
Shin, Honey and Clover Volume 7

"I shall always be watching over you from beyond time, Optimus. When your need is greatest, I shall be there. And now, I have a gift."
Vector Prime, Transformers Cybertron, Beginning

    Comic Books 
The first truth of Batman... it had to be one I don't like to admit. The gunshots left me alone. For years, I was alone in the echoing dark of that well. But something also defined the exact moment Batman was born. The first truth of Batman... the saving grace. I was never alone. I had help.

People feared me, too. At first. This doesn't have to be you. You're not alone. Stop this. Let me help you. My father may have abandoned you... But I never will.

    Fan Works 
It's not half as bad as you think, to face it, once you know you are not alone.
Asuka Langley Sohryu, A Crown of Stars, Chapter 1

Asuka: Well... yeah. I did. But it's a lot harder to blame you for acting that way now that I know you're drugged like this. That's why I reacted so strongly... my step-mother tried something like that with pills when I was younger. I know what it's like. It's not like I think you would kill yourself or something just because Commander Ikari ordered you to or such.
Rei: If I was ordered to do so, I would.
Asuka: What?! Are you crazy? Why?
Rei: He has raised me for years. He cares for me. If he gave that order, I would trust he had a necessary reason for it. [...] ...He is all I have.
Asuka: Jesus fuck, Wondergirl! Don't ever do that! Kill yourself just because you were told to?! I mean... Gott! Never! We're soldiers, yeah, and we could die anytime, but never just on someone's say-so! Make it for a reason worth it! Look at baka-Shinji! He didn't jump into a volcano because someone ordered him to! He did it against orders, because he thought I was worth risking his life for! (And don't you ever risk yourself like that again, you stupid, brave idiot of mine. I love you so Gottdamn much. My damn martyr baka-Shinji...) He'd do the same for you, just like he said, and... and so would I! Commander Ikari's not "all you have!" You're not alone! You, and me, and Shinji, we all look out for each other because there's no one else who can in a battle!
Advice and Trust, Chapter 4

You don't need ... You are not alone. It's always the hardest ... the last thing we realise, but ... you are not alone. Know that. Believe that. If you can have faith in nothing else, if you can believe in nothing else ... believe that. Trust it, and we will never let you down.
Aziraphale, Arrangements-verse, "Part VII, Faith"

It does not have to be either of you [that dies]. It does not even have to be me, or Aziraphale, or any of us. You do not have to make that choice, Dean. You do not have to make that sacrifice. We can do this. This plan is not hopeless, it is not careless. We can do what needs to be done, and stay alive through it. You are not alone, Dean. You are not in this alone.
Castiel, Arrangements-verse, "Interlude III"

"You're not alone, Asuka...I'm here, we're all here for you."
Misato, The Child of Love, chapter 8

Dad, it's okay. I'm here for you. You're… you're not alone, you know?
Ryuko Ikari, Ghosts of Evangelion

You think you're the only one who can handle your problems, and you're not willing to share them with people who can help. Kanae-chan ... maybe I've got my head in my old manga, but you like manga, too. You know what nakama are. Right now, we're a nakama that's waiting for you to realize that we want you to join, to stop running and take a stand. I'm not going to try and say that there's an absolute message from the future to you, here; that keeps you from making your own choices and having them be meaningful. Instead, I'll say that whatever choice you make is yours ... but Nagato relies on your help very much. And the rest of us wouldn't do well without her. Is it so bad to depend on us, when we're already depending on you?

Haruhi: I mean ... I don't know if I could do this alone. Without you, Mikuru-chan, Yuki-chan, and Kanae-chan....
Tsuruya: Aww, it doesn't matter if you could or couldn't! You don't have to!
And that, Haruhi realized, returning her friend's hug, was what really mattered.

Captain Rogers... Steve... if you need anything. SSR is here... I'm here. You're not alone.
Major Phillips, Paperwork

"You can't numb yourself out, Shinji wouldn't want that. As to who you are… [...] You're whoever you want to be. Your essence is still the same, and if you feel confused, or overwhelmed, you can only come to me, or Shinji or Misato, even Maya would be happy to help you. Just… don't bottle it up inside you. You're not alone."
Ritsuko to Rei, Scar Tissue, chapter 13

"Your sorcery is a gift, albeit a double edged one. There is no reason you cannot learn to control it and use it for good."
"You don't understand!" cried Elsa, her eyes darting around at the snow that had begun to fall indoors. "I'll hurt someone, the ice will break free of me and I'll kill someone, my sister..." Bitter cold wind had begun to whip through the room, scattering papers off the king's desk. "How could you possibly know how to stop it?"
The woman did not glance away from the girl in front of her. "How could I know? I'll show you how."
Raising a hand, she snapped her fingers. Immediately a roaring fire sprang up in the fireplace, consuming the kindling in a flash. Elsa was so surprised that the snowflakes stopped in midair. The fire was reflected in her wide eyes for a brief moment until she turned back to the woman. "Who are you?"
The woman smiled. "My name is Sahar Maytal. I'm here to help."

"Fate." Nanoha said firmly, adjusting Fate's head gently so they were looking each other directly in the eyes. "Things are different this time. You have friends, and you have a family... a real family, that loves you. If you want to go out, hunt down your mother and pay her back for all the horrible things she did to you, all of us will be right there beside you. If you... you want to try one more time to reach her, reconcile, then as much as we don't think she deserves it, we'll still be right beside you for that too. If you want to forget about the problem, call in sick, and take a vacation to somewhere tropical while we deal with things for you... well, you've earned it." Nanoha said, putting on a small smile as she said this last point and being rewarded by a somewhat strangled chuckle from the blonde girl. "Whatever happens, whatever you choose to do, just remember that all of us are by your side. I'm here. You're not alone."

For the first time in forever,
I finally understand.
For the first time in forever
We can fix this, hand in hand.
We can walk down the mountain together,
You don't have to live in fear,
'Cause for the first time in forever,
I will be right here.
Frozen, "For the First Time In Forever (Reprise)"

We are one, you and I
We are like the earth and sky
One family under the sun
All the wisdom to lead
All the courage that you need
You will find when you see we are one

Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

Help will always be given at Hogwarts to those who ask for it.
Albus Dumbledore, Harry Potter

I think about the sheer number of people who pulled together just to save my sorry ass, and I can barely comprehend it. My crewmates sacrificed a year of their lives to come back for me. Countless people at NASA worked day and night to invent rover and MAV modifications. All of JPL busted their asses to make a probe that was destroyed on launch. Then, instead of giving up, they made another probe to resupply Hermes. The China National Space Administration abandoned a project they'd worked on for years just to provide a booster.
The cost for my survival must have been hundreds of millions of dollars. All to save one dorky botanist. Why bother?
Well, okay. I know the answer to that. Part of it might be what I represent: progress, science, and the interplanetary future we've dreamed of for centuries. But really, they did it because every human being has a basic instinct to help each other out. It might not seem that way sometimes, but it's true.
If a hiker gets lost in the mountains, people will coordinate a search. If a train crashes, people will line up to give blood. If an earthquake levels a city, people all over the world will send emergency supplies. This is so fundamentally human that it's found in every culture without exception. Yes, there are assholes who just don't care, but they're massively outnumbered by the people who do. And because of that, I had billions of people on my side.
Pretty cool, eh?
Mark Watney, The Martian

Montgomery: You need to go home and get some sleep.
Beckett: Sir, I don't have a home.note 
Castle: Yes, you do. It's a secure building with an extra bedroom, with people who care about you. With the Federal detail at the door, it's the safest place in the city.
Beckett: Thank you, Castle, but I couldn't.
Castle: You can and you will.

"You. Are. Not. Alone."
The Face of Boe, Doctor Who, "Gridlock"

"You know... you act like such a lonely man. But look at you; you've got the biggest family on Earth!"
Sarah Jane, Doctor Who, "Journey's End"

Up until about a hundred years ago, there was one question that burned in every human, that made us study the stars and dream of travelling to them: "Are we alone?" Our generation is privileged to know the answer to that question. We are all explorers, driven to know what's over the horizon, what's beyond our own shores. And yet, the more I've experienced, the more I've learned that no matter how far we travel, or how fast we get there, the most profound discoveries are not necessarily beyond that next star. They're within us, woven into the threads that bind us, all of us, to each other. A final frontier begins in this hall. Let's explore it together.
Captain Archer, Star Trek: Enterprise, "Terra Prime"

This guy's walkin' down a street when he falls in a hole. The walls are so steep he can't get out. A doctor passes by and the guy shouts up, "Hey you! Can you help me out?" The doctor writes a prescription, throws it down in the hole, and moves on. Then a priest comes along and the guy shouts up, "Father, I'm down in this hole; can you help me out?" The priest writes out a prayer, throws it down in the hole and moves on. Then a friend walks by. "Hey, Joe, it's me. Can ya help me out?" And the friend jumps in the hole. Our guy says, "Are ya stupid? Now we're both down here." The friend says, "Yeah, but I've been down here before and I know the way out."
Leo, The West Wing

When I was out on them corners, not a pot to piss in, with everybody who ever knew me or loved me cussing my name, you know what I told myself? I said, "Waylon, you're doing good." I surely did. I thought I was God's own drug addict. I figured that if God hadn't meant for me to get high, he wouldn't have made being high so much like perfect. Now I know I've got one more high left in me, but I doubt very seriously that I have one more recovery. So if there's anybody out there that sees that bottom coming up at them, I'm here to talk sense. I don't care who you are, what you done, or who you done it to. If you're here... so am I.
Waylon, The Wire

"Let me help." A hundred years or so from now, I believe, a famous novelist will write a classic using that theme. He'll recommend those three words even over "I love you."
Capt. James T. Kirk, Star Trek: The Original Series, "The City on the Edge of Forever"

"I'm not giving up, and neither should you."
Kate McKinnon, Saturday Night Livenote 

No more
No more are the days that I will
Fear for I have found a strength that
None can match and I'll push forward

Never has the blood in my veins
Flowed so fiercely as when I feel this around me
I am whole

I'm not alone
With the touch of your hand
I am whole again
I'm not alone
With the touch of your hand
I am whole again
All That Remains, "Not Alone"

I waited for you today
But did you show? No no
I needed you today
So where did you go?
You told me to call
Said you'd be there
And though I haven't seen you
Are you still there?
I cried out with no reply
And I can't feel you by my side
So I'll hold tight to what I know
You're here and I'm never alone
And though I cannot see You
And I can't explain why
Such a deep, deep reassurance
You've placed in my life
We cannot separate
'Cause You're part of me
And though You're invisible
I'll trust the unseen
We cannot separate
You're part of me
And though You're invisible
I'll trust the unseen.
Barlow Girl, "Never Alone"

When you try your best, but you don't succeed
When you get what you want, but not what you need
When you feel so tired, but you can't sleep
Stuck in reverse

And the tears come streaming down your face
When you lose something you can't replace
When you love someone, but it goes to waste
Could it be worse?

Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you
Coldplay, "Fix You"

Oh no love, you're not alone!
You're watching yourself but you're too unfair
You got your head all tangled up but if I could only make you care
Oh no love, you're not alone
No matter what or who you've been
No matter when or where you've seen
All the knives seem to lacerate your brain
I've had my share, I'll help you with the pain
You're not alone!

Yeah, it's been a ride.
I guess had to go to that place, to get to this one.
Now, some of you might still be in that place,
And trying to get out.
Just follow me...I'll get you there!

I'm not afraid (I'm not afraid)
To take a stand (to take a stand),
Everybody (Everybody)
Come take my hand (come take my hand)
We'll walk this world together, through the storm,
Whatever weather, cold or warm,
Just lettin' you know that you're not alone.
Holla if you feel like you've been down the same road.
Eminem, "Not Afraid"

Just the other night
I thought I heard you cry
Asking me to come
And hold you in my arms
I can hear your prayers
Your burdens I will bear
But first I need your hand
Then forever can begin

Everyday I sit and ask myself
How did love slip away
Something whispers in my ear and says

That you are not alone
I am here with you
Though you're far away
I am here to stay

you are not alone
I am here with you
Though we're far apart
You're always in my heart
you are not alone.
Michael Jackson, "You Are Not Alone"

Lost in darkest blue
Endless labyrinths weaving through
Will you stagger on,
with no star to light your way?
Share with me your tears
All your troubles and deepest fears
I remember when
you chased all my shadows away

Won't you take my hand?
Come away with me from this land
Let me give to you
All that you have given to me
Fly horizon bound
Find the moon behind darkening clouds
Even far apart,
Know our souls together will be

When the storm draws nigh
Dreams will shatter before your eyes
Know that you're not alone
When the battle starts
I will comfort your restless heart
You'll know that you are home

When your stars stop shining
Endless vines around you winding
Know that you're not alone
I will give my all
So your tears will no longer fall
Down, down on sorrow's stone

Look into my eyes
All eternity you will find
In this fragile heart,
Know that you will always belong
Shout into the night
Show the darkness that you will fight
Hopeless you may feel,
But inside I know you are strong

Keep me in your heart
So we'll never be far apart
Let the bonds of love
Break these chains imprisoning you
Always you will find
Shadows lingering close behind
Lift your spirits now,
We shall be together soon

When the storm draws nigh
Dreams will shatter before your eyes
Know that you're not alone
When the battle starts
I will comfort your restless heart
You'll know that you are home

When your stars stop shining
Endless vines around you winding
Know that you're not alone
I will give my all
So your tears will no longer fall
Down, down on sorrow's stone
Know you are not alone
katethegreat19, "You're Not Alone" (original lyrics to the music of the same name from Final Fantasy IX)

In every speck of dust
In every universe,
When you feel most alone, you will not be alone
Just shine a light on me, shine a light
I'll shine a light on you, shine a light
And you will see my shadow on every wall
And you will see my footprint on every floor
Keane, "My Shadow"

Who do you need, who do you love
When you come undone?

I break down, fear is sinking in
The cold comes, racing through my skin
Searching for a way to get to you
Through the storm you...

Go, giving up your home
Go, leaving all you've known
You are not alone

With arms up, stretched into the sky
With eyes like, echoes in the night
Hiding from the hell that you've been through
Silent one, you...

Go, giving up your home
Go, leaving all you've known
You are not alone

Go, giving up your home
Go, leaving all you've known
You are not alone

You go, giving up your home
Go, leaving all you've known

You Go, giving up your home
Go, you are not alone
You are not alone

You are not alone
You are not alone
Linkin Park, "Not Alone"

I'll carry you home.
No, you're not alone.
Keep marching on,
This is worth fighting for,
You know we've all got battle scars.
You've had enough,
But just don't give up.
Stick to your guns,
You are worth fighting for.
Paradise Fears, "Battle Scars"

All alone, in ones and twos
The ones who really love you
Walk up and down outside the wall
Some hand in hand
Others gathered together in bands
The bleeding hearts and the artists
Make their stand
Pink Floyd, The Wall, "Outside the Wall"

When your day is long and the night,
The night is yours alone.
When you're sure you've had enough of this life, well hang on.
Don't let yourself go.
Everybody cries and everybody hurts sometimes

Sometimes everything is wrong.
Now it's time to sing along.
When your day is night alone (hold on, hold on).
If you feel like letting go (hold on).
When you think you've had too much of this life, well hang on.

Everybody hurts.
Take comfort in your friends.
Everybody hurts.
Don't throw your hand. Oh, no.
Don't throw your hand.
If you feel like you're alone, no, no, no, you are not alone.

If you're on your own in this life,
The days and nights are long.
When you think you've had too much of this life to hang on.

Well, everybody hurts sometimes.
Everybody cries.
And everybody hurts sometimes.
And everybody hurts sometimes.
So, hold on, hold on.
Hold on, hold on.
Hold on, hold on.
(Hold on, hold on).

Everybody hurts.
You are not alone.
R.E.M., "Everybody Hurts"

Let go of the fear, let go of the doubt,
Let go of the ones who try to bring you down
You're gonna be fine, don't hold it inside
And if you hurt right now
Then let it all come out

Breathe, just breathe,
Take the world off your shoulders
and put it on me
breathe, just breathe,
Let the life that you live be all you need
Ryan Star, "Breathe"

You are not alone
Know that I would fight the tides to be together
When you feel alone
Listen to this song to make your heart feel better.
Sanctus Real, "Alone"

It's just like him
To wander off in the evergreen park
Slowly searching for any sign
Of the ones he used to love..

He says he's got nothing left to live for
(He says he's got nothing left...)
And this time I think you'll know..

You're not alone
There is more to this, I know
You can make it out
You will live to tell

She's just like him
Spoiled rotten
Confused by the lies she's been fed
And she's searching for no one..
(But herself)
Her eyes turn to green and she seems to be happy
That she is here
And this time I think you'll know...

You're not alone
There is more to this, I know
You can make it out
You will live to tell

You're not alone
There is more to this, I know
You can make it out

(There is more to know)

We're not alone
There is more to this, I know
You can make it out
You will live to tell..
(So tell me)

You're not alone
There is more to this, I know
You can make it out
(Make it out)
You will live to tell
(Live to tell)
You're not alone
There is more to this, I know
(And I know)
You can make it out
You will live to tell..

You are not alone.
You're not, you're not alone.
Saosin, "You're Not Alone"

Let me be the one you call
If you jump I'll break your fall
Lift you up and fly away with you into the night
If you need to fall apart
I can mend a broken heart
If you need to crash then crash and burn
You're not alone
Savage Garden, "Crash And Burn"

Did you see the sparks
Feel the hope
And you are not alone
'cause someone's out there
Sending out flares
The Script, "Flares"

Though the heart is heavy as the dance is burning down,
May you raise your eyes and never bow your head.
We are not alone.
SJ Tucker, "Come To The Labyrinth"

You've been at the bottom
Only surviving
You decide who you are now-
I'm with you through everything.
Rachel Taylor, "Light A Fire"

I'll stand by you
I'll stand by you
Won't let nobody hurt you
I'll stand by you
Take me in, intonote  your darkest hour
And I'll never desert you
I'll stand by you
Pretenders, "I'll Stand by You"

You've gotta keep on pushing on
(I'll pick you up when you fall down)
'Cause after all, you know that's what I want
I will always be in your heart
Be the light when it gets too dark
Keep your memories alive
(I'll keep you alive)
I'll be the angel by your side
I'll be the angel by your side.
JT Machinima ft. Andrea Storm Kaden, "Angel By Your Side"

"Could I desert thee, child," said [Philosophy], "and not lighten the burden which thou hast taken upon thee through the hatred of my name, by sharing this trouble? Even forgetting that it were not lawful for Philosophy to leave companionless the way of the innocent, should I, thinkest thou, fear to incur reproach, or shrink from it, as though some strange new thing had befallen?
Ancius Boethius, The Consolations of Philosophy

Cinderella: Sometimes people leave you.
Halfway through the wood.
Others may deceive you.
You decide what's good.
You decide alone.
But no one is alone.

Into the Woods, "No One Is Alone"

Christine: Pitiful creature of darkness,
What kind of life have you known?

Batman: I can't do it... I can't stop them...
Alfred: No, you can't... not on your own. But it's high time you realize you're a man, not an island. And a man's strength comes not from just brawn and intelligence... but also from his allies.

The individual may be remembered, but the organization persists and thrives. A single artist, a single general, a single hero or a single villain may all die, but it is impossible to kill a people, a nation, an idea - except when that idea has grown weak and is overpowered by one that is stronger.

You aren't alone. You have friends that care about you... and Etna.

But you still don't understand that we looked out for you, too! We watched your back while you watched ours. And we believed in you the same way you believed in us! Just like you protected us... We want to protect you.

Zidane: Kuja, tell me something. Is it really so hard to trust in someone?
Kuja: What good is trust? You cling to others because you are helpless alone.
Zidane: But if you have trust in others, then you're never alone.

Shadow: ...I will.

Rena: I had always hugged myself and cried
I was even afraid of believing.
Keiichi: Because I couldn't hang onto your outstretched hands
I couldn't become a gear of fate.
Satoko: Regardless, with a smile
You had embraced me when I was like this
Mion: That was when you told me
About destiny and the courage to fight
Rena: So I had become strong and then realized
All: I'm not alone.
Let's go, everybody; let our hearts become one

Scootaloo: Pinkamina? Pinky... Are you in here? This isn't funny anymore! I don't like this game, Pinkamina...... They are both gone... I'm all by myself now... Pinkamina left me because I wasn't good enough for her... Just like Rainbow Dash.
Pinkamina: I want you to remember something, kid. Growing up is hard enough as it is. And you're gonna have it tough. You're like me. You have a monster inside. I understand how lonely it is growing up being what you are. I want to give you something that I was never lucky enough to find at your age: A friend. And know that no matter what happens... I won't leave you.

Carolina: ...Why did you show me that?
Church: Because I know what it's like to spend your life chasing ghosts.

The galaxy is dark, and empty, and cold. It spins inevitably toward death. You will die too, one day. Perhaps you will have longer than we have. We hope so. But one day you too must vanish.
Until that time, you must light the darkness. You must make the night less empty. We are all small, and the universe is vast. But a universe with voices saying "I am here" is far greater than a universe silent. One voice is small, but the difference between zero and one is as great as one and infinity.
And when your time is passing, please send this message on, so the next voice can speak against the darkness.

I've been on trial for crimes I didn't commit, I know how she probably feels. It felt dark and lonely having nobody to turn to, feeling as if the world was against me and nobody could help. [...] But I was lucky to have friends who pulled out of that darkness... it really touched me. It's what made me decide to become a defense attorney. A defense attorney is someone who's there for you when times are grim, showing you you have someone who trusts and believes in you; that you're not alone. Smiling to the very end, no matter how bad things may get.

Look... I can't tell I know what it's like to take care of everything alone, I mean... You've always been there for me, my whole life... But, you don't have to take care of it all on your own. You're not alone anymore.

Sally: "We" are in this together Sonic Hedgehog. However it ends.
Sonic: [In awe] Whoa...
Sally: Check?
(Touched by Sally's words and actions, Sonic kisses Sally's hand.)
Sonic: Check.

    Real Life 
We have not even to risk the adventure alone, for the heroes of all time have gone before us. The labrynith is thoroughly known. We have only to follow the thread of the hero path. And where we had thought to find an abomination, we shall find a god. And where we had thought to slay another, we shall slay ourselves. And where we had thought to travel outward, we shall come to the centre of our own existence. And where we had thought to be alone, we shall be with all the world.
Joseph Campbell, The Power of Myth: "The Hero's Adventure"

In this tragic moment, when words seem so inadequate to express the shock people feel, the first thing that comes to mind is this: "We are all Americans!"
Jean-Marie Columbani, writing in Le Monde on September 12, 2001

Kinship among nations is not determined in such measurements as proximity of size and age. Rather we should turn to those inner things — call them what you will — I mean those intangibles that are the real treasures free men possess. To preserve his freedom of worship, his equality before law, his liberty to speak and act as he sees fit, subject only to provisions that he trespass not upon similar rights of others — a Londoner will fight. So will a citizen of Abilene. When we consider these things, then the valley of the Thames draws closer to the farms of Kansas and the plains of Texas.

You have worth; you have dignity; and you need not be alone.
Shawn Reifschneider, This "It Gets Better" video

Sure there are some that for whatever reason try and make you miserable, make you feel alone, make you blind to all the other people like you, but you are not alone. I am right here with you, whatever it is that you’re going through. You are not alone. You are important to me. I care about you. I believe in you. I think you’re awesome and I always will. There are so many other people out there in your life, some you might already know, some you are yet to meet, who will feel exactly the same way as I do, they will care about you, they will love you. They will think you are awesome. Because you really are awesome.
Zoe Proasheck, "You Are Awesome"

If You Are Considering Making Comics...
... and you are feeling nervous, inadequate, worried, and like it’s all insurmountable...
I want you to stop for a moment and really listen to this.
I don’t know a single comics creator worth a damn who never felt those things. Almost all of us STILL feel those things, either a little or a lot.
Those things can only stop you if you let them. They do not mean you aren't a "real" creator, because most "real" creators have those feelings ALL THE TIME.
Take them as what they are, a perfectly understandable reaction to the daunting task of trying to put your art, heart and soul into a very public space, in a much-scrutinized media, where criticism comes from many angles.
It's all right to be scared, it's all right to be worried. It's understandable to get down, or feel like it's not possible.
Those feelings are part of it. They don't have to be your roadblocks. You can make them your houseguests, because the odds are you will see them again once in a while, no matter how many awards you win or how many books you sell.
They are part of being an artist.
You are not alone. You are not unqualified just because you have doubts and worries.
Making art is a wonderful, rewarding thing. Part of why it’s so rewarding is because there are so many people and factors in the way of making art in the first place.
Don't let the biggest roadblock be yourself. Your inner critic is often a liar and a jerk. But you can have the last laugh by doing what you love anyway.
Go make some art.

Many people need desperately to receive this message: "I feel and think much as you do, care about many of the things you care about, although most people do not care about them. You are not alone."
Kurt Vonnegut, TimeQuake

The science known as SETI deals with searching for messages from aliens. METI science deals with the creation of messages to aliens. Thus, SETI and METI proponents have quite different perspectives... In contrast to Active SETI, METI pursues not a local and lucrative impulse, but a more global and unselfish one – to overcome the Great Silence in the Universe, bringing to our extraterrestrial neighbors the long-expected annunciation "You are not alone!"
Alexander Zaitsev, regarding the difference between SETI and METI (Messaging to Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence)

What do you see when you look up into the sky? Do you feel small and lonely, just like us? From now on, I can assure you one thing: you are not alone. Be happy.
