Statement

Basically my work is about how Im unsure about my future in all parts of life. And how at times I dwell in my past when I shouldn't because you can never make your future by doing that, how I would like to break free from my past and let it remain just a good memory. At the same time it is also about how Id like to become independent of certain things which I have made a habit of leaning on. I feel that I depend too much on others and thatyou can'tdo thatyour whole life. Right now it may be working fine but if one of thosepeopleor things thatyou depend on goes away thenyoure basically stuck. It is like a weakness which I would like to break free from.
