    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 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?

    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.

    Yes I Do, But They Do Not Determine Whom I Am!

    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...

    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...

    **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 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...
