Just A Little

The first time I ever cut myself was when I was 13 years old. It was during my parent's divorce and it was completely on impulse. I had no idea what I was doing. No, I wasn't trying to kill myself, I was trying to relieve stress. It's a stupid way, yea. I kept doing, not deep, but enough to leave a light scar. I was a stupid person back then, thinking I couldn't do anything right, putting myself down so much I couldn't stand it. Then, one of my friends noticed. The look she had in her eye was something I can't forget. She cried, and told me to stop, she told me "what if I have to go to a funeral this year?!" All I did was look at her and laugh. We both laughed like idiots (odd right?) After that, I stopped. She listened to me and how everything started, and she supported me. She didn't give me that stupid friend bullshit like everyone else did. And I'm grateful for that.
