Hello! Today’s post is a YouTube video called ‘Ritualise’. What I hope to get across within this video is the power intrusive thoughts can have over us. No matter what we do e.g go to school, eat, anything really, intrusive thoughts will always seem to find a way to try and gain power. Of course, it’s up to us what power we give to these thoughts, however in this video I wanted to highlight times when it’s too hard to deflect and not give power to the thoughts (which can be all too often sometimes) I also wanted to highlight the fact that intrusive thoughts don’t always just disappear, we may combat them one day, but the next they can all too easily arise again. This is shown through the use of the words on my arm at the beginning. Throughout the video, I do manage to frustratingly scrub them off, however by the end of the video – a new day – they have reappeared on my arms as if they never went away and so the process starts all over again. As always, my video’s are often a little bit abstract, but I hope the message still gets across okay. This was created as part of my Art GCSE, so I figured that since this exam is over now, I can (hopefully) upload this without any issues…**I edited this in school as part of my GCSE**
Also I’m really sorry about the aspect ratio of this video, it was the only copy that I had.
Hope you enjoy!
