I Have Scars And I Make New Ones Everyday

I am a cutter, Im not proud but Im not ashamed. I started in high school. My freshmen year was hell I was in a bad relationship with an old guy who controled and abused me and raped me. I had not cut in a long time but the last 2 1/2 years my life has been spiraling out of control and I am back to my old ways of dealing with life. I have children now and I dont want them asking questions so instead of my arms I cut my inner thigh. There I am the only one who will see them. But I do not hide the old scars on my wrist anymore and if asked I tell people I just went through a hard time and it was either cut to let the pain out or die, I find cutting is a better option. I wish my life was not such a mess that I did not feel I need to do this but alas it is what it is.

You should not be ashamed of your scars, be proud it shows your a survivor.
