(BEFORE & AFTER)I got tired of waking every morning to my scars and hiding my scars from my dark moments of my past so getting a tattoo like this and what is Symbolize has lot of meaning and reason behind it I’m really happy how it came out just like i wanted it #tattoos#meaningfultattoos
When I was 8 years old, my parents divorced.
When I was 10 years old, my mother passed from a drug overdose.
When I was 11, the police coming to my house on an almost weekly basis was the “norm” due to violent fights between my father & his gf at the time.
When I was 12, I was taken out of school early one day and told that my brothers & I would be living in foreign home for the next 6 months.
When I was 14, I developed an eating disorder and suffered for almost 6 years without asking for help.
Now, all of these things could have broken me, torn me a part, given me a million and two reasons to give up, but instead these things made me ambitious, hard-working, relentless, and...
Through my experiences, I’ve learned that no matter what, I’m resilient enough to make it through any type of adversity that is thrown my way. I can conquer & tackle any problem head on because guess what...
I’ve done it before.
Some would call these experiences tragic, but I view them as blessings in disguise. I would not be the person I am today without my past.. and neither would you ❣️
If you’re comfortable, I encourage you to share a part of your past that has made you the person you are, today.
What if you could love yourself so much that you would stop seeking for outside fulfillment?
What if you knew that at any moment you are there for yourself?
That you can take a break, breathe and hold yourself, nurture yourself, be the one that takes care of you in any situation?
Got a tattoo today (the 16th) and went to the beach for the last time yesterday (the 15th). Thank you, Evie, from the bottom of my heart for the best month of my life. This is everything and more I imagined our friendship to be in person. I’m going to cry tomorrow but I just want to make a small post now and tell the world how much I love you and how wonderful you are.
As someone who has personally dealt with depression and ptsd for many years. This tattoo has a deeper meaning to me than anyone that knows me or sees this can imagine. It reminds me that despite the feeling of the noose around my neck I need to see the beauty in front of me. Als jemand, der sich seit vielen Jahren persönlich mit Depressionen und PTSD befasst. Dieses Tattoo hat eine tiefere Bedeutung für mich als jeder, der mich kennt oder der sich das vorstellen kann. Es erinnert mich daran, dass ich trotz des Gefühls der Schlinge um meinen Hals die Schönheit vor mir sehen muss. #depression#tattooswithmeaning#ptsd#survivor#germantattooers#jerrodgrimm#jaygrimm#meaningfultattoos#fightforyourlife#ruhrpott#gladbeck
Normally I wouldn’t post stuff like this just because I’m not big on “showing off”. I get anxiety and too much attention will trigger it. I love fitness but I wouldn’t start a fitness page. I don’t have any motivation to show people all my workouts, all the supplements I take etc. It’s just something that hasn’t interested me. There is a million fitness pages on IG so it’s not like the information isn’t out there, it’s really everywhere. Doing fitness is just one thing of many that I do, it’s not who I am. You don’t need too pay somebody to show you how to workout. Sorry personal trainers but everything is for free on the internet. It’s one thing if you want to compete, or do bodybuilding but if you just want to get in shape it’s f*ckn simple. Shoutout to @completenutrition and @atslabs for having that 🔥
Out of all the benefits I get from being active, lifting weights, and doing cardio is what it does to my f*ckn mind✌🏼❤️🤟🏼⭐️
