    I have a few hundred

    or so scars now, some very fine and others deep and overlapping several layers, most from knives but a few brands as well. They seem to be fading a little as I have now kicked the addiction but to be perfectly honest I don't regret it. They were made at a time where I needs the...

    **Most of Them Caused By Me**

    ~ THAT'S A REALLY HARD PILL TO TRY & SWALLOW ~ That most of my scars are self-inflicted. I caused most of the damage done to my psyche. It was me, reliving every terrible thing anyone's ever done to me or said to me. Letting it eat at me like a poison til all that's left are...

    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.

    No Regrets

    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...

    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...

    Hmmm. When I saw this title I was thinking

    'wanna compare scars?' Like kids showing each other their badges of 'daringness' and risk taking ability. Wasn't thinking emotional scars. So let's see.. Actual scars. Fingers from putting them in a fan when I was two. Shin from jumping off bunk beds at 7. Hand from sliding...

    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?
