Tattoos are a great way to express yourself, I have several. Each one is different and has a different meaning/purpose.
The last time I went through therapy and recovered from a phase of depression, I found the words "Thoughts are not facts" particularly helpful. So I got them tattooed on my inside right forearm. That way I can see the words and have a regular reminder.
It's not foolproof, as my depression of this year has demonstrated. But it serves as a comfort and a reminder that my recovery is possible.
I am considering getting another, but will be taking my time to consider what will work best and the placement.
- What tattoos do you have?
- What do you use to inspire better mental health?
I want to know.
