My Symbolic Box

“There are things hidden deeply in my box, that I usually don’t show anyone. There are things a bit closer to the door, which I show people sometimes, depending on the person and the situation. And there are things on the outside, which is how people tend to think about me. I like to make sure I spend time with all of these things.

I like working with symbols, because they’re really simple to draw (especially useful for when I need to rest to look after my body!) but carry powerful meanings. The symbols I’ve drawn, from most hidden (left) to least hidden) right: sexuality; Christianity and God; suicidal ideation; girls are made of magic; my inner child; Buddhist practice; books and nerdiness; maths; and my love and care for dear animals.”
