a semi colon is used when someone could have ended their sentence; but chose not to
yesterday my best friend, her boyfriend and I all got semi colon tattoos to represent mental health awareness.
let’s clarify something: people cope in different ways to suffering. some close themselves off, some hurt themselves, some put on a brave face and manage to order a coffee without sweating. some work 9-5, look after their children then cry themselves to sleep. some you’ll see online and thing ‘wow, they’ve got their shit together’. none of us have our shit together, we just show it in different ways.
i’m proud of myself, i’m proud by the people around me and I’m proud of my best friend.
you’ve achieved the impossible babe, and you’re thriving. i love you more than you’d ever know
