1, a selfie
(too tired to take one now)
3, I miss a lot of people right now, because I had never been so far from home for so long before
13, I feel tired but happy and calm, just listened to switchfoot-when we come alive
Do. Not. Cut.
If you feel like you have the urge or desire to cut please do not physically cut yourself. Rip stacked pieces of paper. Watch your favorite show or movie. Make sure it’s a comedy! Call your best friend. Tell your body how thankful you are for being healthy and tell yourself “I love you.” Even if you don’t mean it! Keep saying it. Put band aids over the areas you feel like you want to cut. Paint your nails a new & daring color. Try to find constellations (there are really cool iPhone apps!). Cry if you feel the need. Crying is healthy and it’s important to cry every once in awhile because it’s a natural healing process for your body. Bake some cookies! Count to 100 and take deep breaths. Take a pen and draw a line where you want to cut. A pen will not scar. If you have ever cut in the past and have a specific tool or blade please throw it away. Write the name of someone you love over the area you want to cut. Keep a diary. Paper is more patient than most people. Write everything you are feeling. Don’t forget deep breaths. Most importantly, don’t ever forget that you are not alone. There is always an option to seek help. You are unique and you are precious. Your body loves you and fights for you to live a healthy life. Fight to love it back. ❤️
