I never thought I would see the day where Chad decided to get a tattoo, but when I expressed that I wanted to get a family tattoo as part of our healing journey he mentioned that he wanted to get one as well. There is something so therapeutic about experiencing the raw pain from being tattooed at a time where all you are experiencing is emotional pain. With each stroke it’s like the artist is feeding power and strength back into your hurting soul.
No relationship is all sunshine, mine and Chads relationship is no exception but we have learned how to share one umbrella and weather the storms together.
Here we are living despite everything that has been thrown our way on this life journey, and we have the ability to become so much more than we ever thought we could be. We can choose to drown or we can choose to conquer the shit that has been hurled into our life story.
Welcome to this chapter of our life story: healing.
“We all have two lives. The second one starts when we realize we only have one.”
