I always thought that my brother would be by my side through everything. I didn’t realize that sometimes things change, when my brother left I thought that my world was turning upside down and that my whole family’s heart was breaking. I didn’t realize until he left how weak our relationship had been, and the only relationship we had was because he was my brother. All the love I had for him was slowly breaking. My power comes from the broken relationship with my brother because his mistakes pushed me to be better and learn from them. My brother followed his heart and broke my families along the way, the heart in my painting represents how our relationship wasn’t out of love for each other anymore and just because we were related by blood.
