Self-kindness (318)

Me and my pain, we’ve been together for such long time, I am not sure who is soothing who anymore. — We live in a culture where pain and grief needs to be abolished. We chase for a life where only joy and happiness exists, where we are zen and mindful, where we develop emotional tools to erase the pain. The truth is I am not buying this and I choose to have a relationship with pain and grief and anxiety and everything that is human. This is why in this image I caress my pains -illustrated by the golden fox- and I envision the body in full bloom. Like each cell in our body blooms in healing. Because I believe in this narrative.
