This is a self portrait I did for the Month of Fear prompt, “What Are You Afraid of?”.
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.
