“Maybe men should rule the world”
Seven years ago I fell in love with Game of Thrones, and it’s been a very challenging and transformative period of my life, going through the dark night of addiction to come back to life and through recovery, anew experiencing life to the fullest and becoming the person I was meant to be The parallels in GoT are stark, no pun intended. Today I watched the last episode and this chapter of my life has come to an end, I feel I have recovered but I only get a daily reprieve which is contingent on a spiritual maintenance in a life long commitment. I thought hitting rock bottom was the worst thing in my life, and it turned out to be the greatest, you know nothing augustofsweden.
My tattoo captures my love for fantasy and history, but it is also a tribute to the show that so vividly captures all the primitive and dark sides of what it is to be human as well as the the beauty and complexities of intimate and antagonistic relationships. The 9 sigils of the main houses represents 9 self-states that I worked with in my therapy and that are part of all human beings to a greater or lesser degree with different expressions. In our core we are all the same, we are one, and when you can tap into that you get the freedom of self that recovery sometimes shows you glimpses of. Im eternally grateful for my family, fellowship, those who stood by me and those who walked the path ahead of me, the chain of men and women rising up like a domino in reverse action. Good bye game of thrones. “The battle of good and evil is fought in the human heart in conflict and in the hard choices we need to make in times of crises, and live with the consequences of those choices”
