Series "Stolen memories".
Is childhood the real parent of a person? My childhood was violated on a massive scale. Many of the damaging events and interactions that happened to me in the past –mostly from my childhood– are invisible. Yet, I can feel them. They are very subtle. I cannot escape from them. I am constantly fighting with my past; it is an infinite fight with no winners. Freedom is my goal, courage is my ally. The questions such as “Who I am?” and “What I have become?”. Next to my internal fear of the unknown makes me wonder where I belong?
