I started going to therapy because I realized that, if I didn’t confront some deepseated childhood trauma, it was going to take over my life and hold me hostage. I thought that I could go for a session or two and be on my way. I had shit to do, you know? I quickly learned from my therapist that this was going to be a long- term journey with many ups and downs. Five years later, I’m still going. I got these arrows, created after my first solid year of therapy. I look down at them when shit gets tough, to remind myself that I am a warrior from the cosmos, who is always equipped for battle.
