For today’s blog post I wanted to do something different from my usual posts. I’m going to be talking about the tattoo I’m getting for my 17th birthday.
I will be talking about mental health and depression, if you need to talk about anything message me. I don’t judge and I can try help you, if you need help don’t be scared to come to me or any help line.

This the little tattoo I’m getting, it’s called the semicolon tattoo. Since the Semicolon Projects started in 2013 this tat has become quite popular. It’s to recognise mental health and support it.
Quoted from the Semicolon Project
” A semicolon is used when an author could’ve chosen to end their sentence, but chose not to. The author is you and the sentence is your life.”
The Semicolon Project describe themselves as a “movement dedicated to presenting hope and love to those who are struggling with depression, suicide, addiction and self – injury. Project Semicolon exists to encourage, love and inspire.”
So as you can see it’s to show people that even though they’re suffering dies the mean you have to end you’re life, you are going to get through it.
I want this tattoo because I’ve let anxiety and depression push me to the point where I don’t talk to many people anymore. I’ve let it control how I feel and what things I can and can’t do, now I’m fighting it.
I am fighting it but it takes time. I’m slowly coming back to opening up more, talking to others more, spending more time with the people I care about rather then pushing them away.
It’s difficult but I feel like with this tattoo I can have a constant reminder to push myself to fight what’s taken over my whole life.
I’ve two more tattoos planned, all with special meanings. I’m not going to show you guys until I have them.
Hope you liked this really person post.
See you Monday.
