My Depression – By PixelPicturesInsta

 

So why the picture?

This is how my depression feels.
It feels as if there is barb wire wrapped about my heart not letting me feel good but causing me pain every day, making me push out and deflect the ones i love, the ones that can help me.
No matter what I do the barb wire pulls tighter and I struggle to achieve more!
These may be simple pictures to some of you but these to me are my way of fighting my depression, my way of telling myself I will get out of bed, I won’t lounge on the sofa watching crap TV, instead I will use my brain, I will use my imagination and I will fight to tear this barb wire from my heart!
These pictures make me feel strong, they make me feel a little bit more like me every time I finish one!!
I am a survivor of depression and in the end I WILL WIN!!

Where did the idea come from?

I came up with this idea for a picture earlier this year (2016) i was going through a very tough time in my life and started to find that depression had taken over my life and was starting to make me hate everything i loved, my art started to fail and i couldn’t bring myself to draw a single picture, this picture come at quite a low point in my life, i had just lost my job and spent a lot of the time at home on the sofa bored and watching anything i could find on Netflix to try and numb my brain long enough that i didn’t have to feel sad and alone.

Why does this picture mean so much to you?

the reason this picture come about was because like i said it was the plain definition of what i felt my depression done, i stopped me caring and removed every once of love i had inside it was hard to come through it, this was one of the first pictures i did in pixel style and i feel in love with the style soon after, i found that it was a simple but affective and allowed me to start to love art and drawing again, if anything this picture saved me at my lowest end of my depression and made me pull my self off the sofa and live again.
