I am free to be myself

Free to be myself

As I’m drawing this illustration, I can feel some sense of freedom, just free to be myself. I can feel how it would feel if I could just be unapologetically me. No need to put up a brave face, not being manipulated or having to fake a smile. I would just.. be.

I wanted to post this because, when the postcards arrived, I re-read the card just a bit after I had checked Instagram. I realized that in yesterday’s post I was blaming ME for being hurt and abused by others. I am blaming myself for being the one who is messing with my head, when I’m just struggling to find a good balance between what I was taught to believe and what is actually true. I was victim blaming myself.

Reclaiming my own body is also reclaiming my worth. I’m glad I realized it. Some of you have pointed it out as well which made sure I actually believed it to be true 💜 thank you so much for that 💜 I’m so glad to have you in my life and to have you as my closest friends and family 💜

Freedom will come eventually. Being released and being able to process everything will take time, but today, I’ll hold on, pull through and believe. Please join me to get through another day together 💜

I made this design for this month’s Mail Pals and Cute Loot Patrons (it goes in the loot boxes and gets sent as a postcard to the Mail Pals separately as well) I also made it in a sticker design that comes with the postcard as well. I love making these so much. Sending them out is the best part though. There’s a little letter on the back as well 💜 (I’m sending them out by the end of the month so there’s still some time to sign up if you want one of these)

Xoxo

Will there ever be a perfect time to have a baby?

I thought I still had time. I always thought there was going to be plenty of time way past my 30’s to have kids. Never has it ever crossed my mind that there would be a time before I hit 30 where I’d hear that I wouldn’t be able to have a baby.

It’s okay if all you did today was breathe

It's okay if all you did today was breathe - Mondays can be extremely challenging for many people and can even trigger anxiety with many of us. We are taught we’re supposed to be well rested after the weekend and released from all the stress in our lives to start a new week with renewed energy and fully charged batteries.

We need a society where rape victims are protected more!

I recently have listened to a bunch of Ted talks as well, where survivors and advocates spoke up about how often rape victims get neglected, guilt tripped and victim blamed for ripping apart the “perfect” lives of their perpetrators after they told their story. After they told their TRUTH.
