    Way Too Many Scars

    I started self mutilating

    when i was 8 years old. I quit cutting when i was 14. I used other methods. But now i have found more "conventional" ways of dealing with my needs. Been free of self harm for years now but am still riddled with scars and burns.

    I have been a cutter

    for a year now. And I've been clean for about a month. But the recent events in my life have been getting to me. A lot. My house just burned down. And I'm at a rough spot in a relationship. I have a very bad urge to cut again. Any advice out there?

    Well actually only a few,

    not a lot. But I have a few scars on my legs and one small one on my cheek. I live near a park and one time a kid accidentally threw a baseball through my window and the glass cut into my legs and one on my cheek. I was lucky that the glass didn't hit my eye. I forgave the kid...

    All over my back, as well

    as my shoulders from years of being physically abused. Just serves as a reminder of who not to become.

    I Am Not My Scars

    Like a lot of people here, I have a lot of scars from self-harm. They are mostly on my arms and legs. For a long time, cutting was my only coping method - and I have to say, it did get me through some really tough times. I'm now in recovery. I have my slip-ups, but I have...

    I have many scars on my body from si, and yeah sometimes I don't like them, but there isn't a single one that I regret. They all tell a story of who I am. They are a piece of me. I get told a lot on here that they make me ugly. I think that's bs. I will never be ashamed of my...

    We all have scars! Some way worse than other's! I could never speak of being molested or raped, and though those are the most terrible scars I could ever think of enduring. I have no idea how terrible it would be to ever experience and to have to live through or with after wards...
