First, about the list of the virtues I will draw READ THIS :…
Thank you.

Justice is always something hard to draw. When I was young, I thought something really simple: if you do a bad thing you will have to pay for this, and if you do good things, people will be happy around you. That was really basic, I know (I was 6 or 7 years old lol) but I was kinda happy to think that way because things had meaning to me. And my astro sign is Libra, this is stupid but I was so proud ~

And then on my class when I was 9, a little kid died from a leucemia. I will never forget that. I remember him crying, and saying it was UNFAIR. I think that day I realized that life wasn't that simple. Nothing can be all white or all black. Life was a mix of plenty of other parameters. It took me time to deal with what happened that day, because I was asking all the time "why him ? I don't understand. He was a good person". It's sometimes hard to grow up.

So yeah, I would love to see justice as a person between "good" and "evil", you know, like a wall. To protect people. I put the sword and the balance on her hands, but I refused to cover her eyes. In many representations you see a blind justice: she can't see you or who you are, so she can be impartial and fair with everybody.
But when I was young, the first time I saw this image, the translation I made in my head was "justice is blind because she can't see the bad things all around her, she can't do nothing and actually she refuses to see people's misery and to help them".
Blind justice is really pejorative to me, that's why I totally refused to cover her eyes. I want her to see the world the way he is.

I'm sorry, this must sound really ...strange? but I'm an emotive person and unfair sufferings are something I really have a lot of troubles too deal with. That's why I don't watch the infos often. Because they make me so depressed.

It's hard sometimes to do something positives with the virtues, really. But next will certainly be fortitude and I love this virtue :)

I wish you all the best for your lifes :heart:
