Purple Paranoia

I'm a naturally paranoid person. This self-portrait represents my mindset amplified in the age of coronavirus. My scattered mind clings onto the worst case scenarios even when I fight it. I can't fully explain my mind's gravitational pull towards it, but maybe it's a way of preparing myself for possible bad news. I'm trying my best to purge those thoughts of pain. I have to remind myself that the people I love will be OK. That I will be OK. I am resilient. I am protected.
