Sometimes we feel like our pain is taking over our life, that we're just a piece of flotsam tossed along the rapids, out of control. The truth is, that pain does not define who we are - how we choose to live through it is most important. We survive, we live, we love, we go on and never let go. And that's how we can see through the pain and see beauty.

Abstracts

Abstracts

This group is for your abstract and/or abstraction art sets which wikipedia.org states as art that is: “a departure from reality in depiction of imagery in art. This departure from accurate representation can be only slight, or it can be partial, or it can be complete.”
 
No fashion or realistic sets. No dolls unless they fit a truly abstract concept.

Adult Survivors of Abuse

Adult Survivors of Abuse

This group is for ADULTS dealing with issues of abuse (childhood and/or beyond). For that reason we have an application entry. We ask that you describe briefly your reason for joining the group. There are reasons for joining other than being a survivor. We welcome new members warmly and you will find support and acceptance.
 
BECAUSE OF THE SENSITIVITY AND CONTENT OF ARTWORK DEALING WITH ABUSE ISSUES, YOU MUST BE AT LEAST 16 YEARS OLD TO PARTICIPATE IN THIS GROUP.
 
Art therapy can help release or express feelings. For those dealing with dissociation, trauma art is welcome. This is a place to share our trauma and healing art.
 
Feel free to express yourselves. The only limitation is that we all try to avoid explicit images that might be construed as pornographic and endure the wrath of Polyvore. Nudity appears to be fine in the context of art, but displaying the male anatomy might be misinterpreted by outsiders. Using a metaphor is preferred. If you feel strongly that you must use a certain image, maybe try to cover most of it? It is possible that those of us with fragile emotions may "hear" a Polyvore reprimand as something devastating and we don't want that.

Along the lines of fragile emotions be supportive of members and encourage them to wait for their own answers. We want to provide insight to consider or to share our experience and hope. However we want to avoid giving interpretation on others sets or interjecting what they should believe.

CAUTION TO NEW MEMBERS:
A number of members have DID (extreme dissociation and amnesia for horrific childhood abuse). Their sets can be very graphic at times. While you do not all have to look at every other members set you may come across them when browsing. We work together to support each other so you might see messages about triggering and programming. If you feel that might be too intense for you, there is a group called Polyvore Art Therapy where members deal with intense emotions but not necessarily the intensity we do.

With regard to triggers: Due to the nature of abuse issues we have members who will possibly find themselves feeling triggered by certain images or word. We want every member to be responsible for keeping themselves safe. This may mean not looking at certain sets. Each of us has to be aware of our own limitations.
 
Welcome to the group! If you need help, please contact Cindyfaye, Sunnys-System or Mishmashed

Out of the darkness. Survivors of abuse.

Out of the darkness. Survivors of abuse.

This is for anyone who has been a victim of any type of abuse. Sexual, physical, emotional/mental, verbal, etc. This is a safe place to express any emotion you feel.
There are bound to be triggering sets so please use caution.
The only rules are to be supportive of each other and not to criticize. If I find that you are being rude to other members I will remove you from the group. So play nice! :)

Survivors Art Gallery

Survivors Art Gallery

I decided to make a group especially for the art made by survivors. If you are a survivor of any form of trauma or abuse then please share your art with us. You are welcome to share anything you like here. I first thought about no trauma sets but for many survivors who are healing all their art is about their trauma in one way or another. I want everyone to feel welcome here and be able to share your art. You may post trauma sets but also art sets. You may post your templates... whatever is important to you.
 
Survivors have a special beauty within them and it comes out in their art. I have been thinking for awhile that I want to make this group. I would like to see the beautiful art here that is made by survivors.
 
I only ask that you follow the polyvore community guidelines http://help.polyvore.com/entries/20927627
 
Other groups you may want to consider joining is "Silent no more" for those who have a inner child and need to give her/him a voice.... http://www.polyvore.com/silent_no_more/group.show?id=131839
 
or "The Sum of Us: A DID group"...
http://www.polyvore.com/sum_us_did_group/group.show?id=136894
 
Come on everyone!! Don't hesitate to join!! I want this to be full of beautiful art!! I want each of you to be a part of it!!
