There are a lot of emotions when dealing with depression. Anger. Sadness. Frustration. Annoyance. Fear… everything. And during my short life two very important aspects of life are a constant reminder of how to press one.
Time + Heart.
I got these tattoos after a lot of reflection on that anything worth doing in life, or any success that can be attained take a whole lot of heart and a whole lot of time.
Depression is no different. When the world feels as if it is crumbling around you, or in fact.. is crumbling around you, know that you just have to press on. You have to believe in yourself and believe in the core values that pull you on.
So these tattoos remind me of that very thing… the time and heart of getting past my struggles.
