As of today, I have made it nine months without self-injuring.It’s been tough occasionally. There have been a lot of rough moments throughout the nine months.  But really? They were easier to deal with without self-injury than they would have been with it, at least in the long run. And the fact that I’ve made it this far feels better than any amount of self-injury ever would.Thought I’d put this out there for everyone thinking of giving up- don’t. You’ll like yourself and your life better if you keep going. There was a reason you stopped, whether or not you can remember it when you’re feeling down. And that reason is still worth it- or if it’s not, there are a thousand more reasons that are just as good. Just keep at it.Thank you, SAFE.-Steph
