Overcoming AnxietyWe’re a sorry mess of snapped heartstring and shattered glass aren’t we? And yet we walk toward each other blindly, a pair of lost souls looking for a little warmth. Howling and shivering and eeriness echoes around us. But what does that matter? A life worth living is a life worth feeling, a world worth knowing is a world worth hurting for. We brave all the storms as we hope for a better feeling, and the better feeling comes as our eyes know each other through the dark. A visceral hemorrhaging of excitement and jubilation is what we crave, a tube of superglue to piece the mirror back together, as it were. And we won’t rest our tired legs until we achieve our glorious end.Overcoming Anxiety by 3lly-rock-girl714
Hey! And welcome to the wonderful, whimsical place that is my deviantART page|
So here's my abridged life story for you all...
To begin with, I'm way into the goth subculture. I enjoy all things spooky and creepy, tacky Halloween decorations, old underground bands, corny horror movies, the Victorian era, and haunting, well written literature. And I sometimes like to do the whole picnicking and reading in graveyards like a stereotypical goth girl. JUDGE ME GO ON
The Tintin comics, the Lord of the Rings, and Alice in Wonderland, which were my favorite books growing up all had a significant influence on my growth. I began reading at a young age, and I’ve always got a book in the process of being read.
As a child, I enjoyed drawing a lot. I liked painting too but I didn’t always have paints or brushes that I could get my hands on, so, I mostly drew.
I'm rather introverted sometimes, but don't let that deter you. I'm quite friendly if you're friendly to me.
I take art classes, and experiment in a lot of different mediums. I do some photography (often nature photography), I paint sometimes, some cosmetic art, and some crafts. My favorite art mediums, however, are drawing (I'm usedto just graphite pencil but I'm trying to expand), writing (short stories, longer stories, free verse poetry, songwriting) and music (composing for guitar, violin, vocals etc.).
I enjoy collecting and preserving bones.
Water is my element!
I am pagan (my beliefs are mostly within the spectrum of Wicca and Celtic practices), and I am still exploring my spirituality. As for everyone else’s religions, I don’t really care what you’re into as long as you don’t force bullshit down my throat. I don’t appreciate belittlement or badgering.
I am pansexual (can have sexual or romantic feelings for men, women, and anyone in between.) Pan Pride!!
I love reptiles. Like, a lot. Also birds. And sea creatures.
My heart's true passion is music.
I have a few mental illnesses which complicate life a lot. Despite these, and despite having struggled with self-injury and other harmful things, I am healing and growing and learning to love life, and I am so much stronger than I was. And you know what? I’m learning to love myself too, which is something I’ve never had before. I am broken, but I am beautiful.
There are so many places I’ve been, so many things I’ve seen, but despite this being more than many other people my age have experienced, instead of sating my lust for life it has only sparked an even deeper, more ravenous hunger for the world. I don’t want to simply EXIST, I want to Live. I aspire to be a journalist in the future for at least the first part of my working career, like my hero Tintin, and see some of the world and have my own adventure.
Anyways, enough of that. I hope you enjoy my art, and I hope we can watch each other and maybe be friends.
