To me, bracelets are more than just an accessory. They hold meaning that I could carry around with me all the time.
From bottom to top:
- Blue, white an pink friendship bracelet; It represents the friendships I made on tumblr that mean a good deal to me. Without them, I would feel alienated and alone. I actually made it for my friend Frances for Christmas but I totally forgot to send it.. We hardly talk now but it reminds me of the time we used to talk a lot. We’re still friends though.
- Rainbow Beaded bracelet; Another friend I met over the Internet gave this to me one day when we went to the mall together. She gave it to all of her close friends and I was surprised she gave me one. We hang out every once in a whole but its those types of friendships that no matter how long it’s been, things are still the same.
- Hemp with an Anchor charm; it represents family. The knots on it are the bonds that keep up together. It was our first Christmas where we didn’t get gifts for and from each other due to our situation. My sister have each of us that bracelet though and that’s when I realized that I don’t need material things to make Christmas Christmas. Family is all you have at the end of the day and you shouldn’t take them for granted.
- Skulls bracelet; it reminds me that I got through a suicidal point in my life. That even though at that point it seems like the end of the world, it isn’t. That there is a calm after the storm. I still need to convince myself that every now and then but I feel like I’ve gotten a lot better and that’s a start. It’s something I could work from.
