11 Doodles To Help You Hang In There After Heartbreak

"You don't forget. You just embrace the 'used to.'"

It’s normal to feel a little wobbly and unsure of yourself after a heartbreak.

The illustrations are inspired by Hansen’s personal experiences and observations.

“They’re personal realizations that have allowed me to grow and heal and if they can bring light to someone else, I share them,” the 26-year-old Toronto-based artist said. “Sometimes the truth hurts, but sharing the pain with someone who can relate makes the pain a little less scary to feel.”

You are worthy of being wanted with boldness, in vulnerability, in light. Unashamedly. Unconditionally.
