Truth is, I have no idea how I ended up here, two years self harm clean.
So, here I am writting this bonus blog post for you all to tell you, I am two years clean. 2016 was a really hard year for me. I was in my first relationship, and then it ended. Trying to stay strong at that time, I ended up hurting people around me, instead of hurting myself.
Bad idea. And I am so sorry for anyone that I hurt. But, when you don't love yourself, you will either hurt yourself, or hurt others. That is what I have learned through all of that.
Now that I know, I know that I need to stay strong. I need to journal. I need to read my Bible. I need to have good friends around me. I need to love myself and the people around me.
Something that I have been noticing, is I'm not hurting myself phsically anymore, but sometimes, or always, I'm hurting myself mentally, always saying how dumb I am, or crazy, or not cool or pretty enough, and that's not okay. I know many people struggle with this, but remember how important you are. Remember how gorgeous you are. I will too.
By remembering those things, journaling, reading my Bible, finding good friends, and learning to love myself, that is how I got to two years self harm clean.
Please be nice to yourself. You are worth it. And you can do it. I promise.
