My cousin has been fighting to stop cutting for a whille, she's almost been clean a month. I'm so proud of her but sometimes I find it hard to support her when I'm fighting to not start cutting myself. I'm glad I'm not alone. music keeps me going, I blast 'therapy' by all time low when I feel like I want to harm myself. thank God for music :)
I'm not really sure but I do feel like tese are the questions that we all dwell on. I know that i very often find myself just trying to find a reason for all of this, a purpose for the pain. I don't know why we hurt or why we feel the way that we do, but I suppose that is life. We struggle finding the answers and we struggle to even as the questions from time to time. But it is what makes us human, and I suppose that this may not be all of the good advice you were hoping for but you are not alone tonight, nor are you ever. I understand the feeling of having unanswered questions and I understand the feeling of not really knowing where to go from here.
Thank you for your reply. And for understanding. I appreciate it more than you'll ever know.
I found you out about you guys when back when I was in the 8th grade and been with you from the start. I am in college now, and you guys have helped me every step of the way. Things got so much better and I finally got the help i so desperately needed. Renee's story was so inspiring to me, and I've read her journal entires so many times, that my copy has now fallen apart. I would just like to say thank you, and ask how could I every repay you for the life you saved?
We're so glad you've found hope through our organization and through Renee's story. Your words are truly encouraging, and we're excited that you want to become more involved. Thank you so much for spending the evening with us. You should go to our website and check out our Street Team, UChapters, and Intern Programs. We appreciate your support more than you know :)
I've recently fallen from 3 months free of cutting, and fallen hard. Any advice on picking back up from that and staying strong?
Slipping up sucks, feels a bit like failure. Its not though. Its just a slip up and those happen. I had one four months ago but I still think of myself as quit for a little over a year now. You just get back on that horse and pick up where you left off! :)
