Young and in love we lie to ourselves believing life is perfect. We buy into the happily ever after and never consider what comes after “I do”. This series is an exploration of self. What happened when my happily ever after came crashing down and I was forced to live in reality, re-examining what it meant to share a life with someone. Everything I thought I knew, everything I believed no longer held and I had to begin again. Tearing off layer after layer of old beliefs, attitudes and approaches felt like peeling off skin in order to reach a broken heart. This is my journey of deconstruction and self examination. A journey I was never prepared for.
