i show people my ‘fight off your demons’ tattoo and they give me a weird look. they don’t know that I cut myself and have for years and they don’t know that depression is like a demon inside you. part of recovery is trying to fight it off and that’s why this phrase sticks out to me so much. I am in a constant battle with my own horrible internal demons but one day I will recover. and my scars and my tattoo will be a constant reminder of what I have been through and what I have overcome.
