My mental health team and I have been exploring my past recently, which has involved a lot of painful acknowledgement of things that I hadn’t allowed myself to feel over the years. I decided to try to represent some of this visually.
The writing isn’t always clear, so if you missed bits, it says..
Unacknowledged, inescapable trauma.
Growing up in fear.
Overflowing with guilt, fear and shame.
-Complete loss of self
-Missing important periods of self-development
Tries to cope on own…
A broken adult.
Worn out by fighting alone.
Full of self-blame.
Seeks help…finally-> traumatic abuse -> out of strength, fight, energy and trust
Finds good people.
BUT SO BROKEN. Beyond repair?
How can this wreck be re-formed into some semblance of an adult human?
