Hey there,

3 years without self harm is amazing! I think deep down you don't want to self harm because you are reaching out for help. But I know the urges can all feel too much at times. You have managed 3 whole years without self harm though and you must have had urges in the past so how did you deal with them then? Perhaps this could help you now.

Has anything in particular happened to make you feel like you want to start self harming again? It may be good to talk it through, because it could help you to see things from a different perspective.

You can do this.

Hey there.

I've been in recovery for two years, so I know what it's like to go through those urges too. They SUCK. I had the urge to cut today, but I didn't. Why? I heard a quote today that went something like, "If you feel like giving up, remember why you started in the first place." There's so many good aspects to no longer self injuring. No secrecy, the ability to wear whatever you want, the happiness you get on certain milestones, feeling proud and beautiful and worth something. You deserve all of those feelings and experiences.

There's a whole link on how you can distract yourself HERE! Have you tried any of these yet?

I hope you'll stay safe, and I'll keep you in my prayers.

when you love and laugh abundantly you live a beautiful life.

My personal medicine for not giving into urges when things go awry is good music and venting. 3 years is amazing, you're very strong and I know you can get through this, so if you wanna talk, just PM me (:

You can't ~Here to help! PM me!!~
take away

Take extra care of yourself, do something nice and special for yourself. 3 years in an amazing amount of time, hold on and try everything thats helped you get this far, remember why you stopped in the first place. If you need to write a list of all the reasons to not, and why it's better when you don't..
Urges are horrible sweetpea. PM me if you need to talk xox

Immobilized. Captivated and Hypnotized,
by all your evil lies.

Everyone above me has already captured basically all that can be said.

But I do want to repeat:


It truly is. You should be proud of yourself for it. Don't let those three years vanish just like that.

"Want to know a secret?

You are beautiful.

Black, white, gay, straight, bisexual. Whether you are smart or quiet or impossibly in love with your best friend, someone out there cherishes your smile and gets butterflies when you walk into a room.

Someone out there can't stop thinking about you. You Are Beautiful. Don't ever believe differently."

If you ever want someone to talk to, about absolutely anything, feel free to inbox me!
