Artwork by Andrea Mims, CIWMy art represents my inner journey and an effort to understand my life. I’m still learning from my experiences, and only recently came to the understanding that I equated abuse with love. I spent years looking for the right man, but it was only when my life reached its low point, and I begun to climb back up, that I found the right man and we fell in love.
My story is not over. It can be the heartbreaking story of two people who discover that they are soul mates, but can never be together. Or you can help make it a story of triumph over adversity and despair.
Whatever the outcome, I have learned to love myself and to take responsibility for my life.
