A woman recently wanted to know if it was bad of her to get a secret tattoo…and she has a really sad reason behind her ink.
She also doesn’t want to explain that reason to her mom’s friends.
“Background: I had a very tumultuous childhood due to my mother’s mental illness,” she starts out by saying.
“At 15 my mother kicked me out for the last time because I chose to never come back.”
“She begged, but I told her my reasons and she had no interest in fixing them. I got a job and my own place.”
“I got my equivalency and put myself through college.”
“The issue: I am now in my late 20s and we still have a pretty awful relationship.”
“I am in and out of no contact. I haven’t been able to maintain it, unfortunately. Separating yourself from your abuser is a lot harder then I anticipated.”
“I had a really bad anxiety attack and called her immediately. It makes no…sense to me why I would call someone that destroyed my life but my therapist said it’s a normal reaction. Obviously I still have a lot of work to do on myself.”
“A couple of years ago, before I went back to school, I got a tattoo of the number 15 on the back of my arm right below my elbow.”
Here’s the meaning behind her tattoo choice.
