Today I am participating in MMP Challenge, How would you express sadness? There is more information about this challenge below.
For me sadness is the secrets that we keep to ourselves. I think that when we bottle up our feelings of any sort, it gets in the way of progress.
Once I let out my insecurities and confront them head on.... They are never as bad as they were in my mind. They are distorted images in my minds eye. This journal page is about those untruths that sometimes I say to myself that is not 100% accurate and I do consider them lies. As you notice that the jounaling spot is covered in black representing the wicked things I can sometimes tell myself.
Why do I do that to myself? It is not nice and I would never make someone feel like that. So I came up with a saying regarding this behavior. "If you can't play nice then you can't play in my sandbox." I think that about says it all. Don't you?
Here is what Mixed Media Place is saying about this challenge.
