I hurt myself because I was lonely. I hurt my self because he’ll never love me. I hurt myself because I thought I wasn’t worthy of happiness. I hurt myself over reasons that were already hurting me. I don’t feel better. In fact I feel ashamed. For the rest of my life I’ll wear my scars, reminding me forever how dark and twisted my mind can get. There’s no glory in self harm. Nothing positive can come from it. So right here and now I make a promise to myself that I will never cause pain or harm upon my body again. I am not alone. I am loved. I am worthy of happiness. If you’re hurting yourself in any way for any reason I beg you to stop. I promise you that you are worthy of love and happiness. And that your mind, body, and soul need you. They need you to love them, nurture them, and protect them from harm. For me cutting became an addiction, something I’ve battled for the last ten years. If I can have this revelation and walk away from it without a second thought so can you. You are strong. You are brave. You are worth it.
