HALAL TATTOO'S IN ISLAM | POWERFUL SHORT REMINDER
This Woman's Powerful Tattoo Will Help You Understand What It's Like to Have Depression
When Bekah Miles of Newberg, Oregon, was diagnosed with depression last year, the 20-year-old George Fox University student decided to make a bold statement to help people understand how it feels to live with the disorder. She got a tattoo that seems to say "I'm fine" but, when read from her viewpoint, actually says "Save me."
She posted a photo of the tattoo on Facebook along with a explanation of its meaning.
"To me, it means that others see this person that seems okay, but, in reality, is not okay at all," she wrote. "It reminds me that people who may appear happy, may be at battle with themselves."
After a poetic description of what depression feels like, Miles wrote that the reason she chose a tattoo is because it's a great way of getting the conversation started about an illness that is still considered taboo.
"This is one of the most difficult things to open up about because it's extremely hard for me to feel vulnerable … but this needs to be talked about," she wrote. "Mental illness is serious, but so shamed in our society. We care so much for our physical health, but hardly a thing about our mental state. And that is seriously messed up. Mental illness is not a choice and will likely hit everyone at some point in their life.
