Every time I saw or heard the word “Breathe,” I noticed my body take an automatic very deep breath – like I was observing my body ‘relax itself.’
Sometimes I forget to breathe. Happens sometimes with severe anxiety & ptsd.
But my body knew better 😉
So I decided to get the word tattooed inside my left wrist, as a reminder to relax, & help combat these leftover symptoms from all the trauma.
It really helps 🙂
Sadly, there is still that lingering stigma around mental illness – which I wish was eradicated: I was once asked, “Watcha gettin’ on your other wrist – ‘Blink?'”
Hardy har har.
Moral of the story:
Do watcha gotta do for yourself, don’t worry even for a sec what anyone else thinks or says!
Hello, my name is Autumn Bloom and I write about recovery from anxiety, depression, post traumatic stress disorders, healthy relationships and above all how to find and be our true selves. Let's love intuitively, live passionately and find happiness within. I believe in magic and fairy tales. They do come true.
