Take one breath and then take another
Repeat these simple steps until you feel like you’re doing better
Take one breath, just let the calm of it consume you
Everybody knows that it’s never fair
There’s really only one thing we can do
This is my fifth tattoo and my favorite one. When I first got this tattoo, I had just gotten through my depression. I hadn’t had depression since I was in 7th grade and, at the time, I was just finishing my sophomore year of college so it was rough. For my 20th birthday, my mom paid for this tattoo and it was to remind me that when things got rough, just take one breath. It’s all I can do. It’s the title of a song by one of my favorite bands, The Spill Canvas off of their “Scraps/No Really, I’m Fine” album.
