I refuse to sink. Some people take a look at this tattoo on my right forearm and laugh. Then they ask me, "um, doesn't an anchor sink? That makes no sense." I just shrug it off and tell them what it means that to me. To everyone, a tattoo means differently to different people. Some think it has something to do with the Navy (I work for the Navy and my fiance is a prior sailor).
But it has absolutely nothing to do with that. The reason I got it was because of the symbolic reasoning behind it. Strength and stability. An anchor is something that holds something in place no what how rough things may get. I have had some trials and tribulations in my life, some that have knocked me down numerous times. And each time, I got up, dusted myself off, and kept on going.
So in essence, i refuse to let anything bring me down. I refuse to allow anything prevent me from continuing on after I stumble.
I refuse to sink. ⚓
