High school was very hard for me. I didn’t handle my emotions the best, but I was still learning how to cope. I turned to self injury when things got hard. I felt like I needed to cut to feel release and to make everything okay. It took years for me to realize that wasn’t the answer. But I’m so proud to say I did. In October it will be 4 years since I have self injured, give or take a few bumps in the road along the way.
When I heard of Wear Your Label I was thrilled. To see people stand up and work so hard to break the stigma and show others that it is okay.. It is so reassuring. I am lucky to have come so far. There was a time where I didn’t think I would live to see this day, and I didn’t even want to. I’m so glad I did. I wanted to share my story in hopes it will help someone else. Just to be able to show people that it does get better, and that the darkness will turn into light. I’ve always wanted to be able to speak up and make a difference. I just never knew how until now.
