Your own Worst Enemy

Description

They say you're your own worst critic. That you're your own worst enemy in any case - self doubts - that little voice in the back of your head telling you that you CAN'T do something.
I get them all the time. In everything, work, art, relationships, which is probably why things haven't been entirely great for the last few years. I have a terrible habit of running away from things, of ruining anything that might actually make me happy for once before they get a chance to because I don't always feel like I can do it. Like I deserve it. Like I'm good enough.
This year however has been a major upturn in just about every aspect of my life. I'm happier than I have been in a long time, everyone can see it. I feel like a new man, and I owe it all to myself, to my friends and family who have been there though the highs and the lows and just been the main thing that kept me pushing myself forward. To you, thank you.
I guess this image is a bit of a self portrait (as the character is supposed to be me) and open to interpretation at the same time. I'm sure I'm not the only one who feels like this from time to time, hell I still do. But one day, maybe, all this will be a thing of the past and I'll be the one helping other people get through things.
So that hand at the top...the helper...I guess it's whoever you want it to be, yourself? a friend? family member? God?

...um...apologies for the essay...
