“Tie a noose around your mind, loose enough to breathe fine, and tie it to tree. Tell it "You belong to me. This ain’t a noose this is a leash, and I have news for you: you must obey me.”

I got my first tattoo today with my lovely sister and I honestly couldn’t be more pleased with it. I think it’s gorgeous and the lyrics it is based off of are so incredibly important to me, and having them represented on my body feels amazing. This is one step I’m taking into loving my body, specifically my legs, and this is to serve as a reminder that despite these terrible things I deal with, I can stay kind and full of love and also find my own happiness. I’m not controlled by the things I think or things that happen to me. Having that idea forever on my body feels empowering and incredibly hopeful.
