Today my husband asked me if I thought I needed therapy during covid. I responded and said I'm already on it, I give myself art therapy everyday. I began to see a chuckle on his face and then I started laughing too because I think that’s the first time I said it out loud.
Last year I made a youth art therapy program and that’s when I realized that that’s what I was doing this whole time with myself. No matter what I’ve gone through I’ve always been able to bring myself back to reality by painting. Every time I've painted from 2012 to 2017, I was giving myself therapy. It doesn’t delight me to talk about this but I believe that I’m proof of this working.
