Yasmine Pirouz is a food-munching, cartoon-adoring freelance illustrator with a passion for speaking through comics. When she isn't part-time teaching art, she's creating TORUS LINK @ http://toruslink.com--- the webcomic that is her baby. If you agree that it takes two sides both to tell a story AND save the universe, then she happily recommends you give it a read.

    Wow. Heartbreakingly honest, powerful, perceptive, courageous. Your art drives it all home.
    Having been the beneficiary of therapy many times in the past, I truly hope that you are benefiting from an examination of these issues with a competent therapist. Someone outside the loop of your usual friendships who will tell you the truth and challenge you. Because of my training I’ve always felt that it is a luxury to indulge myself in therapy.
    Regardless, here’s two people you might like to read: Fritz Perls and Victor Frankl
    Gestalt Therapy Verbatim and Man’s Search for Meaning (I read Frankl~ten years or so. He was a psychiatrist in Auschwitz)

    I do my thing and you do your thing.

    I am not in this world to live up to your expectations,
    and you are not in this world to live up to mine.
    You are you, and I am I,
    and if by chance we find each other, it’s beautiful.
    If not, it can’t be helped.

    (Fritz Perls, Gestalt Therapy Verbatim, 1969)
