Because of Self Harm

I don't self harm as much as I used to but I have loads of scars on my arms. Some of them are quite bad and I don't think i'll ever be able to go out in short sleeves ever again. I get so hot in jumpers it is so annoying but I'm not sure if i'll ever have to confidence to wear t-shirts as everyone will look at my arms. I wont be able to wear shorts either cuz of scars on my lower legs. I am very self concious of them but hopefully they will fade a little more with time. I hate it so much, it means I can't go swimming either. I know it's my own fault but it's such a nuisance especially now it's summer.

Or, maybe you could get tattoos?? Just a thought.

You can also look at it this way. You have battle scars but you've won the battle so show them proudly? They are now medals of a tough battle.<br />

Get over the shame, life is too short Even the people with beautiful bodies have something they think is wrong with them.
