Waiting is a sign of true love and patience,anyone can say "I love you" But not everyone can wait and prove it's true.

Some say it's painful to wait for someone,Some say it's painful to forget someone,But the worst pain comes when you don't know whether to wait or forget.

Hey there,

I'm really sorry that you're thinking about your horse so much. I know that when my dog died, I had to remind myself that she wouldn't want me to self harm over her. I think that's what always stopped me from slipping, believing that my dog was somewhere else watching over me, guiding me through life, and maybe the same can be said for your horse?

Maybe you can find ways to express your emotions, such as talking them out with someone you know will listen, such as a friend or family member. Or, you can write, draw, or use music to get out what you are feeling in a better way.

Maybe you can even do something nice to honor your horse, like make a scrapbook of pictures and good memories, or write your horse a letter, getting out things you'd want to say.

It's really good that you didn't slip up, though. You have tons of strength, and you can get through this!

-Dez

I am so sorry....
I am happy that you didn't slip up though...it just proves you are stronger then the instrument of self harm. I know thinking/grieving over an animal, person, whatever can be daunting and it hurts. But as stated above...that soul that you lost would want you to be happy...not self harm. If you do happen to slip up...well, that's life it's a mistake...but I hope you don't. And if it happens..Please let us know, as we are all here to help you. Hang in there friend.

Hi Beth,

I'm sorry to hear that you almost slipped up, and I'm sorry about your horse.

Just know that you're strong enough to do this, you don't need to go back on what you did in your past, if you feel like you're going to slip, feel free to message anyone on the forums and I'm sure you'll find the help you're looking for.

Take care,
~Jack.

Hi there!

I'm sorry about your horse. I agree with Dez though, your horse is in a better place watching over you. I suggest talking to others about thoughts if you feel comfortable, that'd be more healthy than self-harming. Or you could write poems to get your feelings out. During self-harm recovery, it's always best to try and distract yourself whenever you get urges to do it. I also really like Dez's idea for a scrapbook and writing a letter. Maybe it'd make you feel better.

Best of luck, stay strong!
