Tears in the Wallpaper – Zentangle


Just some art, for relaxation after the rather difficult sexual healing journey post today. I called it ‘tears in the wallpaper’ because it ended up reminding me of that.

    I apologize if I have caused any… turmoil with my questions yesterday and today. Beautiful art though.

      Thank you, Kyle! ๐Ÿ™‚ It was a good many questions and I had to step back after a while, but that’s because of the nature of the things.

    I can’t say I like this, but that’s just because it’s not meant to be liked is it? It’s meant to convey things that you don’t like but can’t get rid of. I guess there’s also a bit of proxy self harm in the claws and blood
    Or am I completely barking up the wrong tree?

      Yeah, I suppose it’s not meant to be liked in the “aww, lovely image” way. And you’re right, the scratches that look like they come from claws and the drippy blood and all that, it does remind me of self-harming, too. Or of damage done. I figure it’s better if I “harm” on paper than on my arms, though, so that in itself is positive. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Whatever and however many awful things you’ve endured, you’re clearly able to turn them into very positive, and helpful of others, thoughts and creations. Bravo.

        You’re welcome. Just respect your gift by looking after yourself and the people who deserve such treatment of you for the rest of your life. Imagine what you’ll be capable of then.

          I’m trying my best with looking after myself and I try to be a good person in general. Don’t know how well it’s working, but I’m trying. ๐Ÿ™‚

            Stop trying. Just be. That might sound trite, but there it is. You’re not beholden by your challenges and sufferings to do anything but overcome them like they were never there and be who you were meant to be. And if they help you be better than you were ever meant to be, then that doesn’t justify them, but it sure is a positive outcome. Isn’t it? ๐Ÿ™‚
