cutting, my best friend and worst enemy
i used to hurt myself by hitting myself and i met my best friend who, by the way, does not promote self injury at all and she has stopped, but she used to cut herself and she told me. i told her i hurt myself as well and i started cutting myself as a way of dealing with stress. And ever since i started cutting myself it’s only gotten worse. she’s come out of it but me, i don’t know when i’ll stop . i guess eventually i will.
