Isolation & Secrecy

Eva Merritt

Isolation and secrecy are two things I, along with many others, deal with on a regular enough basis. I feel for me that the two go hand in hand because, for me, when you have a secret you refuse to tell, it can sometimes force you to isolate yourself from others and bottle it up inside. Isolation can be a positive or negative feeling, sometimes you feel better away from others by yourself, but sometimes you feel as though you need someone there to listen to you. Secrecy is something that can also be positive and negative. For most people they prefer to bottle up their secrets and keep everything to themselves, and in some cases this can be good, but for most it's not and so having someone trustworthy is important to people. I get that sometimes it's not that easy, I along with many, have been there. I created these images to show that it's ok to feel isolated sometimes, and to bottle things up. Deal with these feelings in your own way. Don't let them get to you. Embrace them.
