" No one can make you feel inferior without your consent. ” - Eleanor Roosevelt → This quote really inspires me because of its truth. In life, we strive to be better, whether we realize it or not… prettier, smarter, wealthier, healthier, more creative, etc. And that’s great! But are we doing these things for acceptance or just for ourselves? Just remember this: No one can push you down unless you let them. No one can be better than you unless you let yourself see them that way. Please love yourself. You are the only you out there who can do the things you do and you are amazing. Okay? Hang in there and amazing things will happen. and Be the best you that you can be for yourself, and not for anyone else.
In this work I explore my relationship with Trichotillomania and my journey towards self-acceptance. By embracing the concept of Kintsukuroi, the Japanese art of repairing pottery with gold, I show that although I am broken I am beautiful.
