I Won't Look Back
I started self harm about 13 months ago. It started as just a way to help me feel better, it ended up as a terrible addiction. After a boyfriend broke up with me because he couldn't deal with it I realized I needed help. I told my best friend, who ended up talking to her Mom about it. This all got back to my Mom, the last thing I wanted was that. We talked, I promised I'd stop, but I didn't. I kept at it.
I knew other people that cut, and we decided to make a pact. We promised each other we wouldn't cut and it's been over 2 months. I'm not looking back, but looking forward to a life free of self harm.
