My Voice

August 5, 2011
...For Once

So I guess I have a lot of anger from not feeling like I'm being heard. This drawing is expressing my anger at not having a voice in many different situations - with my parents, at work with my boss, and during the abuse in my childhood. Mainly, I was trying to get out some of my frustration at how communication and expression of feelings with my parents is very hard (and still is, but has improved). Most importantly, I was trying to give my six to ten year-old self a voice. I needed someone to listen to me. I needed the abusers to stop and they wouldn't listen. I needed someone to help me and no one could listen.
