Unlearn how to burn from the shame

Unlearn how to burn from the shame


 I had many revelations of how much shame I’ve learned to carry in my life. Almost 30 years of walking through the world as a queer womyn comes with a lot of emotional labour. It takes time to unlearn the hurt society projects on you. I’m in this process. I am releasing parts of me that I need to face, painting this portrait helps me confront the fears I’ve held too long. It’s like looking into a mirror that is telling me “it’s time - let me go”. I’m listening universe. I am no longer going to burn, I am going to become the fire!
