Comeback

“The comeback is always stronger than the setback.”

This quote made me immediately think of my arrow tattoo, which has a meaning connected directly to my mental health. An arrow has to be pulled back before it can shoot forward—that’s where it gets all of its power.

I may have not realized what I was dealing with when I got the tattoo (I was in denial for a very long time), but I knew that someday I was going to shoot forward, that I was going to be okay.

Depression is a mysterious thing to me and I’ve never wanted to learn about it and never wanted to accept I have it. I still don’t.

But every time I look at that tattoo, a small sliver of reassurance speaks in the back of my mind and I’m okay for another day.
