2018 - Ongoing
The photographs from this series are made through my fear of going through loneliness.
Three ½ years ago, after I became seriously ill, my partner told me that he didn’t know whether he would stay with me. He said he did not want to be with a sick woman.
We had had a long, loving relationship. I asked him not to give up on our love simply because, for the first time, we had to experience a difficult time. He agreed that he would do this.
Two weeks after our conversation he cheated on me with a woman he had never met before. Then he left me to begin a relationship with her.
I lost all trust in the man I deeply loved. I lost trust in life and in myself because I truly had felt and believed that I was living with an honest and loving person.
Still after 3 ½ years the most difficult thing for me is fear, fear that I cannot trust myself. I am in an constant struggle that I want to be able to trust again and to be vulnerable but at the same time time feeling the fear that I cannot find that trust in myself.
While knowing that I only can find confidence in myself if I am able to face loneliness my fear of pain is too tremendous to do this.
