Give Until You Break
Hand painted broken skateboard
"Give Until You Break was inspired by a time in my life where I felt that I was giving all of myself to everyone around me, and focusing none of myself on me. This stuck me in a really tough spot, amplified by depression, but inescapable due to anxiety. I realized that I was being walked on by many loved ones and had a breakdown, but the anxious voice inside my head told me that I had to keep giving even past the break, else I would lose the ones I loved. This went on for months until I was able to see a professional to guide me out of the feedback loop of depression and anxiety, and help me focus on my happiness."
