Recently I’ve learned just how many triggers there are out there for people recovering from self harm or other serious issues. I’ve been clean for about three months now but sometimes things just get too much for you to handle and you feel you need to resort to old habits. Yes, it did feel amazing but to be honest, nothing is worth going back for. I’ve worked so hard to get to where I was and within the space of minutes, I was back to square one. If any of you out there are struggling with self harm issues then I will be able to sort of understand how you feel and with any other problems, I will do my best to understand and to help you through this. When going through something like this, the one thing you really need is the support of as many people as possible. However, no matter how many times you are told that everything will be okay, the urge to harm yourself will never really go away. It’s something that stays with you forever because deep down, you still crave that feeling. Please, don’t hide.
realising youre not alone is an overwhelming feeling
It really gets to me that there’s people out there who suffer in silence. I know how that feels and it kills you, either emotionally, metaphorically or literally. Suffering in silence might seem like it isn’t affecting you more than the initial issues but in reality, it really is doing more damage than it appears to. You feel that nobody wants to listen to you and that the ones who do listen to you will judge you endlessly. Those are the people who’s opinion shouldn’t matter to you. Focus on the people who care and support you as opposed to the ones who just try to bring you down and make you come crashing along with your confidence. You shouldn’t have to be judged by people who don’t understand how you’re feeling. Ever. I just want to let you know that if you ever need any help or support, don’t hesitate to get in touch with me. I’m always here if you need me and I’ll never turn my back on you. Please, speak up before it’s too late. The link to my personal blog is on the page.
Ever feel like every time someone tells you it’ll be okay and that you’ll get through it, you just want to punch them? Or like when they say things like this, it makes you want to fall deeper into the dark abyss that is now your life. You want to scream out that nothing is okay and never will be and about how they don’t know anything about your life so to stop interfering? Yeah, same. You’re not alone in this
