I had an epiphany:

I want to stop self-injuring.

I can decide wether to stop or to keep going.

I chose to stop.

I can do this.I can stop self-injuring.

I am strong.

We are all strong.

We can all do this.

We can all stop self-injuring.

The rock that my counselor gave me got lost because I don’t need it anymore. At least that is what I choose to believe. I also believe in making your own choices and fighting your own battlles. That rock was a thing of the past, even though I didn’t even have it for a whole day. It has moved on to somebody else who really needs it. I have a new rock now. My mum bought it for me, because I am so lucky that she loves and supports me. I chose the rock, though. It is gray on one side, symbolizing the past. The other side is white, symbolizing the future. I have a new hope for the future. I have a dream. I am going to be a dancer. I am going to make my mark in the world. Self-injuring is my past. It doesn’t have to be a part of me anymore. I can move on. I won’t forget my past, but I won’t frget my future, either. I will live in the moment. I will “Dance as though no one is watching you. Love as though you have never been hurt before. Sing as though no one can hear you. Live as though heaven is on earth.” – souza

I can’t change the past. But I can change the future. I will live in the moment. I will never waste another moment, because I have learned that taking things for granted is one of the worst mistakes to make. Hopefully I can patch things up with my old best friend, too.

I think I can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel.

I hope that you can too.

Thank you for reading this. 😀

Staystrong.
