All Serious and Stuff
Okay, first of all that first page says "worth less" not "worthless". I was having some pretty intense feelings when I was working on that page, of, well, being worth less. Not as important, not as worthy, not as accomplished, not as interesting, not as attractive - I'm sure I'm not the only one who's ever felt that way. It's a self-portrait, but to make myself feel better I made my nose smaller. HAHAHAAAA!! Also my eyebrows aren't really that scary, I just got carried away when I was drawing them in. The miserable look was real that day though. (Don't worry about me, this was very temporary. Working it out in my journal really helped.)
The second page - well I love the badass quote, and to be honest, this is how I feel 90% of the time. My heart is guarded, my feelings are well-protected, and most people can't see past that to the vulnerable person inside. Which is just the way I like it. It keeps me from having too many of those "worth less" days. Don't tell anyone, ok? I'm trusting you.
