My tattoo says “I am enough” with an arrow below. Throughout my childhood, my experience was such that I was consistently told I was too fat, not doing enough, being enough, liking the right things or the right people. I was always wrong. For many many years I struggled to feel ok with who I am. I said sorry far too often, said yes to everything and everyone to prove my worth. When I turned 30, I finally stopped. I came to realize that who I am is ok. I will never be a size zero, always have people who don’t agree with me and my worth is not in the number of organizations I lead or the amount of things I can accomplish. The words “I am enough” looking at me everyday are a constant reminder of this. The arrow reminds me to keep moving forward- not falling back into my old negative thoughts or patterns.
