WALKING WOUNDED SERIES:

COCOON

A BARRIER TO FILTER THE OUTSIDE WORLD PAIN

Our childhood shapes us as the human beings that we are today. Connecting with other people’s traumas inevitably affect us. Sharing the weight of their pain can lead us to blame them and us as well. We create barriers to protect ourselves to filter the outside world pain. During this process, an internal fight is generated. A new beginning can be achieved when we stop blaming and instead we start caring. Embracing the trauma and facing it from a different perspective will make it disappear or simply change form, leading us to a new life.
