Stories from the mirror

Everyone should do this.

It started off easy enough. A minute is a lot faster than I thought. I have this deep set wrinkle above my right eyebrow, a little to the left. I have that because I use to frown a lot. Why you ask? Because I was unhappy with everything in my life. I was so unhappy with everything in my life that I started cutting. Yes, I was a cutter. June 24 of this year will mark 4 years that I have not cut myself. It also happens to be my 28th birthday. I have my ex-boyfriend to thank for that. He told me he wouldnot date me if I continued to self harm. So, I stopped. I went to therapy and started taking meds. I struggle with this EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. I have learned to love myself and those around me. I stuggle with depression but am strong enough now to ask for help or tell someone when something is off and/or wrong. Looking back, I glad I went through it. It has made me into who I am today. I am in a much better and happier place now. I am surronded by people who love me for who I am. I love them back. I am so thankful for everything, and everyone, in my life. I'm turning those frown lines into laugh lines.

Oh, this is my 200th blog post! I know it doesn't seem like a lot to some of you, but I never thought I'd get here. Here's to more writting!

Congratulation on four years. That's such an accomplishment. I'm glad you're happier.
