Photo taken by contributor Annie, a woman who lives with PTSD, Anxiety, Depression and Dissociation. Annie meditates, does yoga, art, listens to music, and shares life with Rumi, her feline companion. Annie feels it is time to share that she has attempted suicide in her lifetime. She longs to be free of her past and finds peace amidst the trees. The trees that she draws have no roots, possibly because she often feels out of place and ungrounded.
About this photo: “When I am able to be amidst nature, I feel free. Free of anxiety, free of everything that weighs down on me.
I am dancing with the trees and rising to the sky with the branches towards the sun- towards the light of being free.
I wish I could stay amidst the trees…forever.
Forever free of the stigma, forever free of life’s difficulties and anxiety. Forever free to dream….”
