SEMI LONG POST: I'm often asked about my "Kanye West" tattoo. No, I don't have a tattoo of Kanye West, relax. I have a tattoo of one of his lyrics "you're not perfect, but you're not your mistakes" - "What prompted you to get this tattooed on your arm" they ask and I say I didn't choose it, it chose me. I think in life we all make mistakes, I just don't think we are defined by those mistakes. If you do something wrong or bad over and over again, it's not a mistake, it's a habit. A mistake though is defensible. That's why pencils at school had erasers. Forgiveness is a dying art. People make mistakes and we sit on our high horses and squeeze every ounce of remorse out of them to sate our own need for validation. It's sad. I've made many mistakes and I'm still here. I'm still making them and I'm gonna make some more, of that I am sure; the thing is though, I'll learn from them all and I won't allow myself to be defined by any of them. I'm more than a mistake.
