I've been a little depressed lately, so I decided to try and do some art to let out the emotions. The first piece I did was probably the most personal. I call it "Meltdown", and it's supposed to represent the results of meltdowns that I've had through out my life.
There are scribbles, a crumpled up and ripped piece of paper, string (to represent hair), a torn piece of cloth, and broken items among other things.
I know that it looks like a huge mess, as though a toddler could put this together, but when you look closely you will see that it's really precise in the way it's been made. I think that part also represents that although I may seem to act like a child during my meltdowns, it's actually something that I still do today as an adult. I've also learned through the years how to better handle my meltdowns so that these sort of things do not happen as a result....sometimes. Another thought I'd like to add is how this may seem to represent a tantrum, but it is NOT a tantrum. Meltdowns are different from tantrums.
