You would have to be an introspective and sensitive person to fully appreciate Venezuelan artist Maria Guadarrama’s thought-provoking comic series called “The Unspoken Truth.” The drawings reflect the kind of situations and emotions that pretty much every one of us can relate to. The most obvious feelings we’ve all experienced collectively are solitude and heartbreak, which are featured heavily in her illustrations.

Maria, who now resides in Santiago, Chile, is a graphic designer by day, but in the evenings, she allows her passion for drawing to rise to the surface. Living in a different country, also allows her to appreciate what it’s like to experience solitude, which she also portrays in these incredible comics.

Have you ever felt like you wanted to have a one-on-one with your significant other, but he didn’t?

Everyone can relate to those moments when you and your significant other don’t seem to be on the same page when you’re trying to have a serious conversation, but not because you can’t agree on something. His mind just to be somewhere else… like in outer space.

Time heals all wounds, even when it seems like your heart is never going to fix itself ever again.

Maria illustrates a pretty common scenario: what it’s like to experience a broken heart, the time it takes to heal, and what it feels like when you finally get the chance to meet someone new. All it takes is time and patience.

Sadly, not all of us are meant to be with the person we happen to be with right at this very moment.

At some point in your life, you’re going to be someone’s rebound. Oh, it might seem like true love, but it’s only temporary, until the other individual finds that perfect someone. Then you find yourself rocking the boat all by yourself.

Loving someone can be a challenge when you’re both as different as night and day as seen here.

Sometimes, you and your significant other can feel like Mentos and Coke. Unfortunately, this might mean that he might not want the taste of Mentos and go off to find someone else. But in some cases, differences do attract like bees to flowers.

There’s nothing more heartbreaking than when you love someone who doesn’t love you back.

This illustration represents the face of life’s struggles when it comes to finding someone to love. But just because it didn’t work out with one person, it doesn’t mean that there might not be someone else out there who is the French fry to your ketchup.

The moment we start living in the past is the exact moment that we stop living life altogether.

This drawing proves that a lot people tend to carry their past on their shoulder when they should be leaving that past behind and dropping whoever or whatever has hurt them in order to move forward.

Everyone wants to have their happy ending, but it doesn’t just happen in a blink of an eye like magic.

Getting that happily ever after you’ve always envisioned requires hard work, and not just from one individual. It takes two to make a thing go right. So, start setting up those building blocks so you can have a sturdy tower to stand on with your significant other.

Our minds and spirits are like flowers that need watering, or in this case, a little tender loving care.

No one is completely autonomous. We often rely on others to help make us grow and shine, and it doesn’t have to be a significant other. It can be a family member or a friend, just so long as they’re providing you with positivity.
