My name is Vaibhavi. I dabble in various different mediums but oil paints are definitely my jam. Art for me has been therapeutic and liberating and I hope to share its joy with others.
When it becomes second nature to be in a constant state of anxiety, depression, and self- loathing it takes a lot of courage and at times a critical breakthrough point to take the first step of accepting that something isn’t right. It’s hard to reach out, be vulnerable and ask for help but it’s the only way of finding people who are able and willing to help. Hope and happiness aren’t as abundant and easily accessible as movies would have us believe. They require effort and commitment. In my case the people featured in this piece put in the initial effort to ensure I got some sunlight and hydration and eventually the professional help I needed for which I will eternally be grateful.
