Hey everyone out there my name is Rebecca I'm almost 14 and fought with cutting for 8 months. For a month I cut every day at least sometimes twice a day. My dad left my best friend turned on me I had no one until one day my frien who is like a brother to me called me and said he was giving me a week to tel my mom about my SH if I didn't he would tell her for me. I was breaking I didnt know how I could live without it. Here I am almost 2 months later SH free. So I just wanted to let you all know those feelings fade never go all the way away but they fade to almost nothing. And there is always a happy ending I'm so glad I'm done with it. Just remember stay strong and it will get better. You guys are strong I know it. Messagee me if you need

Congrats on being SH free for 2 months! That is a huge accomplishment.
Im am getting better, was not doing good but im slowly getting better.





From day one I talked about getting out
But not forgetting about
How all my worst fears are letting out
He said, "Why put a new address on the same old loneliness?"
When breathing just passes the time
Until we all just get old and die

Listen its not worth doing. There are so many different better ways to control your emotions. I wish I never would have done it in the first place.

i self harmed from the 6th grade until the end of 7th. i'm in 8th now, and have been done with all of my crap for about half a year now.well, i still think about it, and sometimes i pick at my scars, but i'm still trying to hang on to being clean.


We...are not alone. Not until we choose to be. Choose your fate. Defy life and become your own. Don't conform.

You have to remember not everyone who stops cutting is going to regret it at all. I was cut free for 4 years and I never regretted cutting or my scars on any one of those days. NI had no slip ups at all. I got out of the hospital and from then on was cut free but I have started again. And a lot of people cut because that is there only way of coping with things so just keep that in mind that although you were able to quit cutting some of us might not be able too.


We may shine, we may shatter,
We may be picking up the pieces here on after,
We are fragile, we are human,
We are shaped by the light we let through us,
We break fast, cause we are glass.
Cause we are glass.
