Healing and protecting my inner child

Healing

Healing

So this drawing started because I was told I needed to comfort my inner youth/younger child. I have struggled with mental illness for a long time and I have come by a lot of pain because of my childhood, in which I was not able to express my emotions. I kept it all in until I was able to go to therapy and get the help to unlock the pain. Art therapy become an outlet to help me express my emotions and help me heal. This drawing shows the strength of both of my younger and adult self healing and protecting me from the pain. It shows the courage. It shows that the only person who can truly protect your inner child and heal her is ourselves.

I forgot to mention that these two Russian authors are already well known in Canada too, although I doubt you'll find them on your local mass media...

Though looks scary but well expressed :) I am not familiar with this kind of thing but if you are interested in in some non-conventional approach to these issues, you may want to learn more about the Russian methods developed by Grigori Grabovoi (also written as: Grigory Grabovoy) and Alexander Petrov.
Google them and see if you like it :) Wish you get better soon :)
