This is an illustration I drew over two years ago when I was in a particularly vulnerable place with myself- something that I've now grown to appreciate.
What almost no one knows about this drawing is that it came from a self portrait taken around the same time. I'll never forget that moment of solitude.
If you're in a place where you think you might implode under the pressure you place on yourself, know that you're not alone. Give yourself time to feel. Give yourself time to grow. Patience, patience, patience.
