Go on holiday, meet new people or old friends you haven't seen in a while, do something you wouldn't usually do. In my own personal experience, "depression", for lack of a better term, comes about when I stick to the same routine day in and day out.
I feel like you're going about this the wrong way. When I do something creative, it's a way of expressing my emotions and hopefully getting rid of, or at least rationalising, any negativity in my life at that point. I'm not looking for widespread acceptance of what I do or any sort of financial benefit.
