This piece from my Art Journal Sketch Series is about the experience of learning through therapy to recognise and separate my own identity from those of others around me, and to become aware of and listen to myself. Identity disturbance is a common symptom of Borderline Personality Disorder, and for me, has resulted in a lifetime of being unaware of myself as a unique entity.
