Moga drew this, which I found on her Tumblr blog. I first thought, poor kid, wait until she drops that school block and picks up the debt block, plus the blocks for job, marriage, kids, divorce, loss, loneliness, and illness. But along the way, you find out that you are stronger than you ever realized you could be. I did not want to actually say all that (except in my mind) until after I saw the followup panels, which you can see if you continue reading.
The original piece called “Drowning” drew over 200,000 Tumblr notes, plus other responses from people who empathized with her, were concerned and wanted to help, or just loved it. A few days later, Moga posted this follow-up piece with the caption:
I’ve never been good with words, so I drew this to thank everyone for the overwhelming support about my recent piece “Drowning”.
And then a few days later this one appeared.
Her second followup work reflects what I had thought.
Most importantly: you’re stronger than you think.
