Depression by JenniferHealy Depression by JenniferHealy
Part 1 in a series called My Empire.
Why am I making this series and sharing it with the world? Because there is something great in reaching out. Someone somewhere feels less alone when finding that they can relate to something. Mental illness can feel extremely isolating.

I love the symbolism here--it really does capture the feeling of depression. Falling to pieces, coming apart, isolated, losing your shape and scattering.... Clearly, you've felt it, and I appreciate you opening yourself up to vulnerability by depicting it and sharing it. You're right--it's healing to find something you can relate to, and know that someone else has felt the same.
