Dark Place

 

The 2nd image in my series is called Dark Place, it's pretty self-explanatory but here is a little bit about this image.
Dark Place is where I disappear too when I am having a hard time when things are really bad and I just can't or don't want to deal with anything. I think anyone that has depression, goes to a dark place when it's particularly bad. 
This is when I want to curl up and shut everyone else in my life out, which I know sounds really horrible, but it is exactly how I feel. Sometimes I am not in this place long, but some times I am in it for weeks. I will pull away from my family and friends. From creating the work I love, I have no motivation to do anything at these times.


I am so grateful that I have an amazing support system, my husband understands these moments I have and he lets me have them if I need too. My boys, even though they don't really understand depression, they do understand why I need some time by myself sometimes and they give me that time, which is more than I could ever ask for. My friends, oh my friends have pulled me out of this dark place so many times, there are times where I just don't know how I would have gotten through it without my husband, kids, and friends <3


When it came to creating this image, I wanted to look like I was in a dark room, surrounded by that darkness like it was enveloping me, but I also wanted there to be light, the hope that I will get out of this place. It usually seems out of reach, but it is always there! This is what I wanted to show in this image!
