The artist within me

Drawing and painting came naturally to me. I was good. I knew it. I felt it. People saw it. I was selected to study art at university, even though I didn’t have art as a subject at school. I had a lot of catching up to do. And I did. I worked very hard. Then I met him. My future husband to be. Slowly he eroded my confidence. Always criticizing. Spilling coffee on my drawings just before a deadline. He is sorry he said, laughing. It was just an accident. He said he loved me. I wanted to believe him – and I did. I forgot to believe in me and in my talents. My confidence ebbed away. I stopped doing what came naturally to me. I let the artist within me die.
