S 20: Burning Bridges Blog

Experiences make our individuality.

The collection titled Burning Bridges is about experiences with fear and anger, ignited by trust issues, used to keep others from getting close to us. Sometimes we move through life equipped with a flamethrower and assure ourselves it's a shield. The little voice in our head can be so persuasive. ”Burn!”

I struggle with this too. As a kid, I moved from city to city, mostly attended schools for only 1 year, and increasingly struggled to make new friends every enrollment. Eventually, the value of friends and close connections was misplaced. In my mind keeping everyone as an acquaintance was safe; everyone was disposable. I was ”Too Good at Walking Away.”
