This is why we can't have nice things: mental health edition.
.
Anyone else fall into the constant trap of self sabotaging themselves when things feel stable? 🙋🏻

"'Self-critism' (redrawn)
- "You seem rather relaxed for someone with your body and head disconnected"
Boy: "...I stood and watched an interesting conversation. The talented heard they're worthless, the worthless heard they're entitled, the entitled heard they're nothing but a name, the name heard they're responsible, the responsible heard they don't give a damn, the don't-give-a-damn heard they're kindhearted, the kindhearted heard they're passionate, the passionate heard they're brave, the brave heard they're different, the different heard they're selfish, and the selfish heard they're talented."
"The point being?"
Boy: "This conversation happened without anyone aware that no-one told anyone anything. Isn't it funny? At least I have more self-awareness. You see me as disconnected by normal standards, but I see myself as a mind and body that is simply visibly connected by thorns."
.
Even though thorns connect the body and mind. Is there a reason to feed or cut them? If we saw and accepted ourselves as everything that we are, would the deadly things be given any chances to bleed us out? Thorny plants prick others not themselves, so isn't it funny that we cut ourselves up with ourselves?

I want to touch the flowers that can eventually bloom."

"In April I spent 3 weeks in Hospital receiving Psych care. During my first week I made the rain painting and during my third the flowers. At the time I didn’t place too much significance in either, but now when I look back I’m in awe at how much our art can show our emotions even when we aren’t aware of them. The great thing about art is you don’t even have to be “good”, to express yourself. I know for me I can often express in art what I can’t in spoken word."

I've been thinking about art a lot lately and how terrifying it is to share things on the internet so I'm sharing the very first illustration I made last summer.
.
I was in a behavioral stats class essentially losing my mind not only because I couldn't keep up with the material but because I sat in the same seat for the first 3 days and then switched on the 4th. It was this decision that caused my brain to go into overdrive. Somehow moving from the back of the room to the front made me feel like I was in a completely different place and so I drew what I was feeling.
.
Ironically (or not), anxiety has now been limiting my ability to draw these things. It tells me that if I spend too much time drawing the anxieties then I'll put too much focus on them and they'll never go away. It tells me they'll be bad and rushed for the sake of content. Anxiety is dumb and I guess I just kinda wanted to vent about it.
.
Anxiety. Is. Dumb.

"I used to dislike being sensitive. I thought it made me weak. But take away that single trait, and you take away the very essence of who I am. You take away my conscience, my ability to empathise, my intuition, my creativity, my appreciation of the little things, my vivid inner life, my keen awareness to others pain and my passion for it all ❤️.
.
Sensitivity is a good trait, it doesn’t make me weak!"

"Depression 101 : You don't have to be sad to be under depression, it doesn't mean that you don't have a family or you weren't privileged or you had a dark childhood. Depression is an illness"

""Chronophobia"
I just realized that I never shared the complete image of her. As the name would suggest, this piece is about a fear of time. Lately I've been finding myself feeling extremely anxious and worrisome about time. I feel like every single moment I have, I must spend it in the most efficient way possible. Which is good for productivity, but bad for my mind and spirit. I've been putting so much pressure on myself and not allowing myself to just breathe. So please take some time for yourself today. Have a cup of tea and just let your mind rest. Because your mental and emotional health should always be a priority"
