i wont let you anymore

Traditional. July 13, 2017.

The photos are real candids taken by a family member. The knife was given to me before with that note written on it -- I did not write it myself. I burned the paper notes except for the one that said "I won't let you anymore" shortly after finishing this work. I trashed everything else.

I remember I was proud of myself that day for the progress I had made. I still am.
