Pulling my own weight by PabloMoranJr Pulling my own weight by PabloMoranJr
The meaning behind this image is the depedency I have on myself to get through whatever shit I'm going through on my own. I rarely go to anyone and gush my feelings out. I tend to just work them out myself, and learn more about myself by doing so.

Pulling my own weight by ~PabloMoranJr is a perfect portrayal of the concept of not replying on others to get you through life, but helping yourself through those tough times. ( Suggested by Jace-Z and Featured by Shalora )

Is it bad I saw the thumbnail and immediately thought 'invasion of the bodysnatchers?!"? xD.
Anyway the piece actually leave more of an impact, and my neck hurts looking at the bridle... Is that just rope or telephone cord or something else all together?

The colors work very well in this photo. The vibrant blue of the two 'selves' is a great contrast to the duller colors of the background, and the little bits of blue in the sky complement the blue clothes.

All in all, I really like it!

"I tend to just work them out myself, and learn more about myself by doing so."

I think the undertone here comes off as contemptuous to others, who rely on others for support. Humans never do anything truly alone. The notion that we don't learn from ourselves by talking to others is somewhat absurd and condescending.

The image is amazing. Your attitude is not, and your assumptions of how humans operate optimally disrupt what this piece could mean.

That said, I am what some would consider a 'loner' in that I prefer to think about things to myself instead of talking to others. I'm not taking this picture as a personal insult or anything. Merely, I acknowledge that my way of thinking is simply one way out of many good ways to live and function.
