this illustration is beautiful! and could be redone through the concept of using a females facial/ portrait area and have her lips coloured red to symbolise love-passion/kissing, use half the face of an animal which represents love, use the rose within her hair to represent love etc... as a concept for the cover of my romance novel- just a concept which could work or could not work.
Learning to live with bpd is learning that my peers are changeable, I can't control any one but myself, and to let go. If I fear, I fake and it's much more important to be honest and open with myself. Those who love me, love me regardless of my emotions. There is no shame in talking about them. Challange that fear x
