Letting go. - March 28th 2013, 07:44 PM

After losing countless friends, losing the trust of my family, years of mockery and teasing, and losing my boyfriend, I've given up self harm. In October, instead of being ashamed that it would have been 5 years of SH, I'll be celebrating 7 months SH free. I'm determined to make a change for myself, not just in the hopes of restoring my relationship. I don't want anymore scars. I don't want to be deceptive anymore. I'm tired of having to think of ways to do it when and where so I won't get caught. I'm tired of all of it and it's been too too long. So I'm stopping.
Just thought I'd share.

Kyra... This is amazing, hun. I am so happy you're trying to recover. You deserve to be happy so much. And I'm just really glad you're doing this now. I believe in you and I believe you can do this.

We're all here for you along the way of recovery. Don't give up. (:

Stay Strong <3

This is really great. I'm so happy to hear that you've been able to make this decision - I've been there myself and I know how tough it can be. Remember no matter how hard it can get the urges get SO much easier as time goes on - I've been four years free now myself and I can tell you things get easier the longer you go. We're going to be behind you all the way as well. Best of luck x

You are amazing. Well done. You're an inspiration to me.

Do you wanna come with me? 'Cause if you do, then I should warn you - you're gonna see all sorts of things. Ghosts from the past. Aliens from the future. The day the Earth died in a ball of flame. It won't be quiet, it won't be safe, and it won't be calm. But I'll tell you what it will be: The trip of a lifetime!

Don't trust a perfect person and don't trust a song that's flawless.
RIP Granddad Terry. I'll miss you.
