Hey,

I'm really sorry for what you've been going through! Please don't believe the people who call you "fat, ugly, etc." because it's not true. People can just be mean sometimes because they are insecure of themselves.

I know how hard it is to be able to stop self-harming and everything else, most people cannot do it without help. Have you ever talked to a counselor or another adult? If not, I think that would be a good option, that way you can work through everything you've been going through!

Please hang in there! You can get through this! If you ever want to talk to somebody, I'm here! Just send me a private message!


all i want is a place to call my own and
mend the hearts of everyone who feels alone,
woah,
you know to keep your hopes up high and your head down low.

<3

Yeah, quitting something like that is really tough. Would it be possible to tell your mother about it, since she knew that you were doing it before? Getting help would be a great step at getting over this. Your boyfriend and best friend can be there to support you and help you to the best of their ability, but they aren't a professional who can actually help you work through and overcome this problem! I really think that would be benefical to you at this point in time!
