A Broken Soul

Copyright Xenia

I don’t know how to begin to explain how I feel about SI. I’ll begin by saying that I am 17 years old (I’ll be 18 in 6 days). I live in California and I have been a self injurer for 4 years now. I’m extremely proud to say that I stopped completely a year ago because I found the greatest motivation anyone could find to stop such destructive behavior — love! Now I feel contempt for people who still feel the need to cause themselves pain. I’ve looked at the pictures and became literaly nauseous! It hurts to bad to know that people do this to themselves, and it is inconceivable to me that I used to be one of those hopeless people. Seeing what people do to themselves brings me to tears. I wish I could give everyone of them a hug and tell them that they are loved. I wish I could give them all a little piece of my insight and wisdom towards cutting. I’m so endlessly sorry for those unfortunate souls who have brought themselves to their own demise. I am so lucky to have found something, anything, to get me to stop. I know that if I hadn’t, cutting would have been the end of me.
