From the depths of your despair to your highest peak, and repeat.
‘Rise’ represents the feelings I had to touch and deal with to eventually find euphoria.
This is a simple journey in colour.
The red is a concoction of pain, the deep-felt feeling of injustice, denial and suffering.
The black is when I rise from my denial and have to face myself. It represents the hard conversations you need to have to rise again. It represents the discomfort in those moments. It’s only by sitting with that discomfort that you can climb to the higher levels; there’s no other way around it. The black is a step forward, but it’s not a step out. Although I’ve risen, there’s still a great sense of hopelessness and nihilism. What’s the point? As much as the previous pain tortured me, it was comfortable. It was what I knew. Drugs gave me that instant relief.
It’s impossible to comprehend that I will ever experience the same highs again.
The green, the excitement for life beyond the pain. It’s a natural high, not an induced one. It’s a high unlike any other, one that exists without the impending shame, blame or hurt. It’s real.
The blue, the serenity that lives above it all. True bliss. I can’t feel it in the darker times, but it’s always there waiting.
I can travel up and down this emotional journey over months, days, hours or even seconds. Knowing what true bliss feels like gives me the strength to stay in my emotions and not turn back to quick releases and instant gratification.
