“Don’t forget to love yourself”
My vow to myself to stop self harming. People used to ask me to promise not to anymore and in my mind that’s a bit ridiculous because chances were, I was going to do it again. I’ve grown so much and I’ve overcome so many struggles with self harming and even trying to commit suicide. I look at my life now compared to my life two years ago and I’m such a stronger person. I know I can overcome this, I know I’m strong enough to get through my struggles without harming myself. Bad things happen and I used to think somehow everything bad that happened was my fault. I’ve learned that everything happens for a reason and some things are out of my control. All I can do is play with the hand that was dealt to me. All I can do is make the best of what I’ve got. Life is too short to do anything but love who I am and who I’m surrounded by. I am who I am. I’m learning to enjoy life for what it is. I’m blessed to be alive and this moment and I’m so grateful for the people I have. For the people that love and support me. It’s time for me to start living the life I should.
