⭐️ 2017 vs 2016 ⭐️ My life looks so different from last year, haha! This time last year I was working at Alpine Meadows ski resort in California taking my lunch breaks skiing all over mountains. Since I was on the go I didn’t have time to sit down and draw in anything other than a tiny moleskine but it was great practice drawing friends and getting used to drawing around others! ❄️ It’s hard to believe now that I’m back in North Carolina, but getting opportunities to support myself through drawing offers a different kind of thrill not completely unlike throwing yourself down a mountain. Now that I’ve had my one year anniversary in artist alley, I’m able to challenge myself to ask what do I have to say? It’s terrifying to look internally and realize my life experience has been shaped and haunted by abuse and trauma, but while it’s embarrassing to admit at first I hold on to the truth that the shame is not mine to carry. The shame belongs to my abusers and to the adults who’s negligence caused the damage to become stuck as trauma. This year I am learning to admit I survived a horrible environment and not to sugar coat the experience least I minimize the same to any other survivor of child abuse. I am proud that as an adult I have been able to break the cycle of abuse and work to be a safer person. Through this healing and stabilization with chosen safe support system I have experienced the side effect of my drawing reservoir becoming more accessible. I drew more and filled more sketchbooks this year than any year in my life. I owe that to a whole lot of support from safe folks in my life helping me stabilize and begin the hard work of recovery and management. I don’t always win the day, I’ve got a long way to go, and my life will never be “normal” but I will continue to make choices out of love instead of fear as much as I can! 🌈⭐️💖#BestNine #artist #comics #drawing #watercolor #bestnine2016 #yearinreview #artistalley #mentalhealth #abuserecovery #trauma #ptsdrecovery #ptsd
