Almost. - October 30th 2010, 11:03 PM

Things have gone downhill for me the past few months or so, and I have felt like cutting myself again and came REALLY close last night, but I remembered there's no point, I don't even want to bother, I don't want to hurt myself. I don't want to do something so pointless as harming myself. I'm proud to say I'll never cut again, and I guess my point here is that for those of you who are having problems stopping, just know it is possible to stop harming yourself for good. There is a day that comes where it'll be easier for you to stray away from it, it can be done. There'll be days you know how to deal with it, and you avoid cutting yourself because you know it won't help. I guess I'm trying to inspire people and be a good role model for those who are still harming, to show it's possible and to bring positive energy.

Hey Jen (:
I'm really glad that you've taken all the negative things into your life and put such a positive attitude outwards about them. I'm so proud that you've realized that self-harming won't get you anywhere, and that sometimes we just need to hold on and take life one step at a time. It takes a lot of strength and courage to say no when the temptation comes to you, but I'm so glad that you've been able to fight it. Keep spreading your story and giving people hope that it's not the end yet. (:

Take care of yourself.

When you can't find your way home,
and when life gets too hard to face on your own.
I will stand as a light through the darkness unknown,
I will walk with you, so you're never alone.

Hey Jen,

I think you are so strong and amazing to have managed to not self harm despite having really bad urges! I am glad you have got to the point where you don't see self harm as helping because it does just add to your problems. Keep at it!
