This too shall pass

this too shall pass

Words I have lived by since I was 15, since my family moved back from Paris and I was struggling to adapt to the heat, the language barrier, and the oppressive environment of a tiny private school. For every obstacle I faced, my only consolation came in the form of those words: This too shall pass. No matter how long it took, no matter how unhappy I was, it would pass, and I would be OK again.

And for those who have tried keeping count, yes, this is officially my 10th tattoo.

this too shall pass
