Fear & Self-Expression
I wasn’t initially sure how to best express the concepts from ‘a book’.
Worried I would alienate my readership; I was constantly self-doubting and editing my art.
Regularly reminding myself that ‘healthy deconstruction is needed before healthy construction may take place’ (-LRH), I pushed through my fears and decided that the destructive-negative self-talk our lead character, Noah, initially expressed was indeed imperative to the overall storyline of Jesus Loves Your History: Forgiveness Meetings. In the end, self-expression beat fear and I stopped editing my art.
Noah & his friends show us that no matter how good someone may look on paper or what social standing they may have or power they may have at one point or another…at the end of the day that person (as with us all) is just a flawed being who can only really change when they’re open/ready for it, the opportunity presents itself and most importantly: when the need to be oneself and expression oneself wins over the fear of what others may or may not do and/or say in response.
