Twenty months - December 13th 2018, 09:24 AM

Hey

Selfharm controlled my life for many years, and all I could think about was selfharm. It got out of hand and it became my worst enemy, but also my best friend. If that makes sense?

27th December I've been free from harm in 20 months!
I never thought I could stop. But I did. And I'm proud.

Just keep fighting. You're stronger than you believe.

Love,
Lucy <3

Lucy, that is something to be very proud of. I am someone who has never self harmed myself by cutting, but I have done it by drugs and alcohol at a very young age. I have been sober now for almost 1 year now and it is something I am most proud of in my life.

Congrats.

20 months?! That's amazing! You should indeed be sooo stoked! Congratulations!

We all possess resilience, we just need to realize it.
