Self Injury Awareness Day - March 1st

Today is Self Harm Awareness Day. I did not want to let it pass without doing/writing something to acknowledge it.

I have self harmed for years..My scars will not fade, but they are no longer an embarrassment. They are not something I have to explain if I do not want to. They are a part of my story, a big part because it was how I showed I was hurting. It was how I asked for help, even when I didnt want help. I hid it, pretended, lied, made up excuses...I did all of it.

Now I am working to gain control of it. To stop hurting myself and instead learning to speak and express what is wrong in healthier ways.

I have found hope in the midst of chaos..and I wish others the same.

Peace and Love
