The lotus flower is a symbol of strength and new beginnings & the semicolon is for my struggle with depression. I've fought long and hard & have come out strong! Anytime I could have ended it, I didn't. Just like a semi colon does.
'I'm drowning and you're standing three feet away screaming "learn how to swim! - this is how being depressive must feel like. Horrible feeling for the screaming person as well - I know what I'm talking about.
I'm exhausted from trying to be stronger than I feel. I'm truly trying to forgive and let go. I'm tired of being afraid. I'm tired of crying. I know I'm enough. I just have to reiterate that dialogue internally and focus on the good.
