I got a tattoo of a tree with no leaves and one little bird flying away. Typically when people get tattoos they hold some meaning or resemble something, or just because they like the design or words. Whatever it is, it’s your meaning and your reason. When I was in rehab at a really young age for drug abuse, I lost everything In my eyes at the time. I didn’t have drugs to cope, or places to go and hide and not deal with the pain and suffering anymore. Everything was brought out on the surface and it was what you stated when you stated your name it was everything you had to face at every moment right in front of you. There were very limited times where I felt like I had my own space so when we were allowed to go outside I went towards the tree to write and sit alone and collect all of my crazy thoughts at the time. It was the part of fall where the leaves were all gone, just trees with stems basically. I always found beauty in the tree even though it was dead. That sentence is what led me to getting this tattoo of a resemblance of finding the beauty in things. ##WhatsYours #TreeLove #expressyourself #RecoveryTattoos #MotivationalTattoos #BPD #spreadlove
