Trapped Behind the Mind
The human mind is an extremely powerful and complicated thing. Unfortunately for me, this capability of the mind can be rather debilitating. As a person that struggles with anxiousness and anxiety, I am constantly in my head about every little detail of my life. Whether it be how I say certain things, interact with people, the way I write, if I ate enough, etc. thoughts are flooding my mind. At certain points in time, which happen more often than not, these thoughts are so numerous that they start to overwhelm me. This overwhelming feeling makes it seem as if I am being swallowed up and completely losing myself. In this piece the first figure on left is completely intact. However, each piece the further right you go is more cracked and covered by the darkness until it's very hard to distinguish how it looked before.
