Steen - What Are You Afraid Of?

Self portrait
Ink and digital.

I grew up in an abusive household for fifteen years and even though I have done a lot of healing, there is a long way to go.  Full recovery might never happen, but I am hopeful.  Underneath this hope there is a dark and deep fear that I will turn into a monster like my abuser and there is nothing I can do about it.


  1. Thanks for sharing this. Came from similar background and although I have no words of encouragement I found it helps when these things are shared and mutually acknowledged. Great illustration.
