Maybe! I’m definitely gonna walk by that house next time I’m in the neighborhood haha. The cat had no collar but it’s probably someone’s kitty cause it was very friendly and near a home :)
These days, whenever I find a part of my body that I dislike and that I find the instinct to hide or destroy, I try to lean into it as much as I possibly can.
I try to exaggerate it, to document it, to adorn it. I try to look at it the way that someone who loves me might look at it. I try to draw self portraits including that part of my body, over and over until it breeds familiarity and fondness. It’s even helped me cope with dysphoria for periods of time.
And sometimes it’s not possible at all and always it is really hard but for me personally it’s the most healing path I can take.
Right now I have some kind of funny looking “wings” coming from my sides after surgery. My first instinct was to hate them and to feel self-concious and monstrous. But I’ve been swimming against the tide to try and change that feeling. I’ve been drawing cute portraits of myself as a flying squirrel. I’ve been taking photos of myself where my “wings” are emphasized. I’ve been writing romantic mythology in my head about how my body came to be this way. And it’s not a perfect method, but gosh it helps so much.
