Bare / Bear
An image that sheds some light on the wording - ‘it’s okay to not feel okay’.
Most of us have been conditioned in a way where both consciously & unconsciously, we often feel restrained from discussing our deepest, darkest fears and sentiments. Unsure of how it will be received and taken, along with the angst of not being understood - it makes us think multiple times before opening up. Hence, we choose to hide behind the shiny facade of the materialistic indulgence and the superficial conversations.
The contrast of one covered-protected hand and the other exposed one, aims to highlight the dilemma of ‘to come out bare with or to silently bear’ our emotions.
