    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...

    Write now if I was alone,

    I would probably punch brick walls. I am so depressed and feel so defeated. But the pain would make me feel strong. It might make me feel like I'm actually in control of something for once. I get so angry, because I work so hard and nothing ever goes right. If I was a cutter I'd...

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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.
