Pinky promises, plastic person, stopping...

by CurlyJ on April 16, 2012   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

To start with, I have made three pinky promises in the past week, all of which stating in some form that I will stop cutting/ self-harming and begin to battle my depression. The plastic person is called a color blank by Roseart, they are they weirdest looking things and you color them with sharpies. I took one and wrote "To Write Love On Her Arms" an wrote love on its arm then wrote the date that I gave a certain person it, telling them I wanted it back in a year as long as I had not cut. These are some of the ways I am slowly stopping cutting.
