I’ve slept with men I didn’t want to sleep with, just because I didn’t want to say no and make them angry. I’ve gotten haircuts that I hated, and when the stylist asked what I thought, I said I loved it. I’ve stayed in an unhappy marriage because I didn’t want to hurt my husband. I’ve finished eating meals at a restaurant that tasted terrible instead of ordering something else. I’ve taken showers with a clogged drain because I didn’t want to bug my apartment owner. I’ve allowed people (mostly men) to treat me like shit and then brushed it off like it was nothing. I guess what I’m trying to say is that I’m still learning to speak up. I’m still learning how share my truth, even if that means disappointing someone else. I’m still learning how to unapologetically ask for what I want. But you know what? I’m actually starting to get really freaking good at it. A few days ago, I got this Sak Yant tattoo by a Buddhist monk in Chiang Mai, Thailand. Sak Yant tattoos are hand-etched onto the skin using ancient geometric designs mixed with Buddhist prayers. It’s a spiritual ceremony that is believed to give the wearer magical powers associated with healing, luck, strength, and protection against evil. Right before I went in to have it done, I frantically looked through the book filled with 100’s of designs in the waiting room, but none of them spoke to me. So I spoke up. I said I wanted something different. I wanted to create my own. I wanted it be smaller, simpler, and with my own personal intentions. Now I don’t know if monks are supposed to get angry, but after listening to him and the staff talk (in Thai) about my bold request for 15-minutes, I’m fairly certain he wasn’t happy. But after much contemplation, he agreed. He blessed me with an original Sak Yant tattoo. When I saw it on my skin for the first
