    **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...

    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 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?

    Ugly scars, and scars are beautiful. Scars are made up of wars fought, knowledge sought, love gained or lost.
