Art – Sinking w/ Interpretation

This is one of those pictures that invoke so much emotion you can actually “feel” it. While I stare deeply into this picture I see failure, depression, fear, anxiety, and a lack of self-confidence. Yes, all of that from one picture! I definitely don’t want to be that person with nothing to hold onto when times get tough, and in realizing that, you come to the conclusion that YOU are the one in control of your current and future situation.
Although I mentioned this picture had me feeling fearful it also inspires me not to quit. Seeing failure, as bad as it may be, encourages me to do better. Next time I’m feeling down and out I’ll just look deeply into this picture and ask myself this question, Do I want to sink or swim?
