My First Cut

Copyright, Yavannha

The first time I cut myself was when I was 11. I still have the scars to prove it. I stopped cutting for about 4 months and then one night I was in my room and I had just moved things around and I heard this crunching sound so I looked under my bed and noticed there was a bunch of glass on the floor because the bed broke a framed picture I had. So I have no idea how I got the idea but I took the glass and made three cuts. It was the most shocking thing I ever felt. I thought it would hurt. It didn’t, as sick as it may sound. I love the way it made me feel. That was about a year ago. Now no one knows about my secret other than my two incredible friends. I want to tell someone so bad I just don’t know how. I’m only 12! And I really don’t want this to be a lifelong thing.
