Original image also available here as a framed print, poster , on canvas and more.
This image is not quite what it seems at first glance… it has to do with releasing myself of self-imposed prisons, mental strong holds and old dysfunctional patterns.
When i was younger i played the damsel in distress. I wanted to be rescued, saved. When people came at me in a predatory way, similar to my childhood, i wanted a fearless protector to be my voice and keep me safe. As i grew older, i realized the only way i could heal was to stand up for myself and find my voice so that i could free and save myself from the unhealthy patterns and corrupted beliefs that were imprinted on me as the invisible tattoo of childhood abuse.
I am surprised how difficult it is to break these patterns. I notice them most when in romantic relationships, that’s when the wounded inner child emerges… thank you for taking this journey with me :).
