    I Won't Say I Won't.....

    I won't say I won't self harm. But I will say this, I am trying not to resort to self-harm as a way to run from my problems, and to escape the emotional pain. I won't say I will never self-harm again, because we know that is a Lie. But, I will say, I am trying hard not to resort...

    Razor Blades...

    ... I get it, I really do. I don't have to try to understand, it just makes sense to me. Inflicting physical pain upon yourself to take you mind off of what you are enduring mentally or emotionally does not sound too shabby. Physical over emotional sounds like a good trade off...

    No matter how close I have come,

    or how much I think about it, I just couldn't do that to you, you've been through enough already and i won't make it worse for you. I will try my hardest to keep myself sane but it keeps getting harder.

    Never will I ever damage my body in any way.

    No matter how unhappy I am with it, it's me. That's how I look & that's how God made me & my beautiful body doesn't deserve that. Nobody deserves that.

    When I think about it,

    doing drugs & cutting yourself is basically the same thing. Not always but let me explain; people do drugs to relieve the pain & stress & so do cutters. They both are damaging their bodies. Not realizing what they are doing to themselves. It's just different ways & forms of...
