I do know, I struggle with anxiety and depression. I have tried, three times to take my life, to kill myself. I do self harm, but I’m struggling to stay clean.
I’ve been bullied about my weight since I ever started school. But, I started self harm in 6th grade. Constant bullying, and all the fights at home, it destroyed me. 8th grade, my grandma found out I self harmed. She told me she understood, and wanted me to get help.
Sadly, it cannot happen. My mother, she thinks it’s a huge trend. That it’s for attention. I can’t get her to understand. It’s hard when your mother doesn’t understand. But, I know I’m not the only one. Recovery can happen. It will happen. My mother may not support me, but I have my friends, my grandmother, my brother, and my amazing boyfriend.
Just keep being yourself. I worried so much about being liked by others, that I forgot to love myself, and make myself happy. Be happy with who you are, and don’t change for anyone, because everyone is beautiful the way they are. I’m gonna get through this, and at least I know, and I hope everyone else does – they’re not alone. For everyone. Someone cares about you, even if it’s only me.
We can do this.
