How can my limbs that hate be the same limbs that love? 
Each of these stories represent an individual who has a lover, family member, or friend that causes him or her pain to love. Some chose to submit under a veil of anonymity while others sent in their stories with their names attached, but while on the wall every person remained anonymous. This ended up being an extremely emotionally draining project for me because many of the stories are very difficult to read and as I was hand writing each one, I could feel their hurt through a sense of empathy. BUT at the same time it is a success because as people read these, I know many have a strong emotional response provoked within them, as well as the 39 individuals who submitted (and that’s more than I’d ever hoped for when I started this project). Please take time to read some because if you can relate to any of these, you may be surprised to realize that this is truly a human experience we can all relate to.
The rest of the stories can be found posted on this tumblr.
