I was waiting to post this on any social media sites until I showed it Cody, and I finally got to do that tonight so..here’s my newest tattoo.
I had a friend of mine get Cody to write this out for me back in October, and then a few weeks ago I went and got it tattooed on my inner forearm.
Honestly, this song & tattoo mean so much to me. I’ve destroyed so much of myself over the years and recently I have realized that I can’t do it on my own. I need other people, and I need to believe them when they tell me they love me. More importantly, I need to believe myself.
I got the tattoo as a reminder. Two things my mom always used to tell me when I was younger: “You are loved, and you are a child of God”.
When I first heard the song, it hit real close to home. I just broke down and cried. It’s one of my number one songs that I turn to - just like Set it Off is one of my number one bands to turn to.
Music is so important in this world, and I’m incredibly grateful that I get to experience it the way that I do and as much as I do.
If you’re going through a tough time, I encourage you to remember that you are loved.
You may not feel like you are, believe me I have been there. But I can assure you that someone out there loves you. I might not know any of you, but I promise that I love you with all of my heart.
You’re important. Every single one of you are needed in this life. Please never do anything to hurt yourselves, because I care about you and I want to see you all living life to the fullest.
If any of you ever need anyone to talk to, my ask box is always open. I will never post anything openly, everything will remain private.
If you need a friend, I am here.
