    Very intimate...I feel sad, remember what doesn't kill you only makes you stronger.  And if that doesn't help...go take some pictures!!!!!! You're great...and you have a great eye Veronica.  Some people shoot and approach photography as if life imitates art, you approach photography knowing art imitates life.

    Gasp.... Oh NO!!! :( Veronica!!!! This is such a powerful image... I am sad to see that it is a self portrait, sorry to see that you have been going through a sad time, it is hard to find words to comfort people when they feel so lost... it will ease and then you will be you again...a beautiful self-portrait of a happy Veronica to follow one day soon i hope!!!! :)

    I view this image and my heart breaks.  You've captured the powerful emotion of sadness so profoundly in this image and hopefully, in time, you will post another of your beautiful smile.

    Veronica, this photo says so much, and you are so brave to post it.  It shows strength of character!  Yes, break ups are one of the hardest things - they break your heart and for a while, your spirit and trust in yourself.  At least that is my experience.  There are no words that haven't been said already here, in books, and other places.  The things I can offer are warm thoughts, healing energy sent your way, prayers, and the addition of my presence in the community of photographers here who are part of your support team.  And even though you can't feel them in person, hugs to you!

    Oh Veronica, that picture brought tears to my eyes...whatever you are going through, remember you are not going through it alone....you have a whole cavalry of fans here

    Veronica, obviously you were very emotional when you took this image. It is very interesting that you decided to capture that moment with your camera. 

    Some people get disconnected from their environment when sadness strikes; they isolate themselves from friends, family, work and even from food. 

    You mentioned in one of your posts that you were going to take a break from submitting to NG.  I hope you feel better every day but of course acceptance and healing takes time and it cannot be rushed.

    I believe this is a beautiful image and I think perhaps your passion for photography can help in the healing process and yield amazing images you never imagined before.

    veronica,, I just came back to this photograph,, I thought about it and I can see as I have read the other posts that perhaps this is your story of human emotions, your life story,, whatever it is,,, we are never given more than we can handle,, it is in our darkest times that we grow the most... I love your work my friend and I love the thought you put into your stories that you tell with your photographs,,

    I look forward to your next amazing image and your wonderful story that will go with it..

    Dear Veronica, everyone processes the pain in his own way, the way that he or she knows it is the best way to do. So take all the time you need for going through this process and hopefully you will come out stronger than before and that is what I wish for you. As it is been said here before, we will be here for you as soon as you will come back ... good luck my friend!

    Wishing you well Veronica. May whatever it is that you're going through now make you stronger once it's over. The paths to wisdom, perseverance, and strength (and why not, healing) aren't usually paved with flowers...and sometimes they are quite torturous, indeed, but they do make us stronger, and the sun, though hidden behind dark clouds sometimes, is still there, keeping us warm, keeping us alive, and it will shine again. take your time...breathe in...breathe out. You were very brave to share this picture with the community.

    @Joan Rankin Hayes Joan break ups suck! Haha But it makes you stronger as well. I've been in this situation before but this time it hit me hard, very hard. Perhaps because it is true love... Something that we can't find everyday, you know? This community is incredible and I am so glad to be part of it, having all of your support. Yes, I can't feel your hugs in person, but I do feel them in my heart... Thank you dear Joan!

    @Juan Osorio I was very emotional indeed Juan. I still don't know how I was able to post it but I'm glad I did. I tend to isolate myself when I feel blue.
