I often think about what I would want to tell "child me"...the one still living inside me who still sometimes feels lost and afraid from the trauma she has experienced. I think what would be most important for me to tell her is that despite how stuck, lonely, and vulnerable you feel now...healing is possible.
I asked the creator of this artwork to depict that through her talented lens and this is what she came up with. I truly could not think of a more beautiful and vibrant image to showcase that. We all have a child part of ourselves. Sometimes thinking about comforting her and giving her a hug makes me more patient with myself and my setbacks. The world is hard, and sometimes you may feel hopeless, but healing is possible...I am living proof!
