From the age five, until the age of eight I was sexually abused by a family member. Throughout my life I have struggled with this reality. It has affected my ability to have healthy thriving relationships. The quote is a song lyric, and when I first heard the song I told myself that when I decided I was ready to shed my past, and allow myself to have the things I know I deserved I would get this lyric tattooed on me. So, in July 2013 with the support of a wonderful friend I went to Nathan’s Tattoo in CA, US and got this lovely piece by Todd Reich. it is an everyday reminder that although I might have an unpleasant past, I came out of a terrible situation stronger.
