Some things do get better over time, little by little.
Trying to find courage to write, day by day. Thanks for reading. Connie on Ko-fi
[Single-page diary comic titled "Little by Little. Heading reads, "On Shame." Main character drawn as a younger girl in warm monochrome tinted frame, sad, hunched, anxious and wringing her hands. Text reads, When I was younger, I could not imagine my life without paralyzing shame and super secret anxieties. The girl thinks, "It would be better to die than tell anybody." In panel 2, the palette is bright and the main character is drawn with a braid, standing upright in full color. Text reads, "Now that I'm older and after a lot of self-work..." The girl says, "Weirdly, I've learned to live with myself." Diary comic page by Connie Sun, cartoonconnie, 2022.]
I know this path. I wish someone had tried to make it easier when I was young.
I hear you, Connie. At 60, thank God, I no longer care so much what others think of how I dress etc. The anxiety continues but it no longer controls my life. So much.
At least now I recognise it for what it is.
