I have a heart tattoo on the inside of my left wrist. It has immense meaning to it that many don’t know about. It dates back to 2006.
If you have been following me for a while, you have probably noticed the small heart tattoo on the inside of my left wrist. This is a huge symbol for me that many people don’t know about. More often than not, people see it as something “cute” vs. the symbol it truly is.
When I was in high school, I had a friend write this heart on my wrist one day. She knew the trials I was going through personally and emotionally. After she wrote this heart on my wrist, she told me to let it be a reminder that when I don’t love myself to know that God loves me first and that everyone around me loves me as well.
When I was in Eating Disorder treatment 5 years later, I decided to make this symbol that I wrote on my wrist every day a permanent reminder. A group of my close friends from treatment all went with me. We all chose symbols to remind ourselves of the love that is around us to help us in our darkest moments.
I wanted to share this with you to not only explain this piece of me but to also encourage you. Find something in your day to day life that proves to be this reminder to you. God loves you and the people around you love you. This is enough.
