I struggle with Borderline Personality Disorder and I wish to address the stigma and fear surrounding this mental illness by illuminating the beauty and power that can be forged from such a scary diagnosis. I aim to shed light on the fact that we are people just like anyone else and we only crave to be understood and accepted, as all do. Sometimes we may come across as much more intense than the average person. Please understand that while we can feel and express negative emotions to a startling degree, we also are capable of just as deep, if not deeper, levels of love, intimacy and kindness. My hope is that through artistic expression I can accomplish some of these goals and we can all feel just a little more comfortable talking about mental health.
