    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.

    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...

    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...

    One Day One day. I hope.

    I will be able to stop. One day. I hope. I will no longer need to self harm. One day. I hope. I will no longer have the urge. One day. I hope. Cutting will just be. Something In my past. One day. I hope. Cutting will just be. Something that I struggled with. One day. I hope...

    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...

    Cut Too Deep...

     Cutting was a massive part of my life. It still is i guess... But Ive "cut down" (haaa ironic choice of words) because of a very nasty reality check i got a while ago. I'd had a really bad episode with my dad that morning and had just got insanely depressed. I...

    Trying Again....

    it seems like any day that i go more than three days, and i think, okay maybe i can beat this battle with self-injury, and i can do it, something happens, and i just go back to cutting again. i hate that, i just want to stop self-harming myself, but i feel like i need to punish...

    We all have different experiences that have formed us and for me to judge you without knowing yours is like doing a book report without reading the book.
