Repressed Memories – 8″ x 10″
Acrylic on Canvas
You can force it away but you can never forget. Somewhere in the recesses of your mind where you buried the awful, the haunting, the dark, the worst parts of your life, it lies patiently waiting. While we may think our repressed memories lay dormant, forgotten forever and never to be touched again, they are still there and they are far from dormant.
Everything that happens to us, every choice we make, every expierence we go through shapes us into who we are. While we would like to avoid the hurt and hide it away so those thoughts never see the light of day, they still have been crucial in shaping you into who you are today. Face your demons, uncover the forgotten. Deal with the issues at hand, come to peace with them. Let them help you grow into the being you are desiring and are called to be. Don’t let one aspect of your spirit be hindered by giving dark spots control in the back of your skull. It will only grow and try to take over the good areas.
Take control of your thoughts. unleash the awful, and become a better person through it. Learn, live, let go but never forget.
