TWO SELVES

Some redesigned frames from a personal monologue. It's concept centers around the idea of two selves that exist within every person. As a follower of Brandon Stanton of Humans of New York, i was inspired by one particular post which featured a photograph of a young woman sitting on a luggage in the subway reflecting on this idea.

"I wish I’d partied a little less. People always say ‘be true to yourself.’ But that’s misleading, because there are two selves. There’s your short term self, and there’s your long term self. And if you’re only true to your short term self, your long term self slowly decays.”

I found this to be very interesting, and relatable to anybody living through their early twenties.
