Wanted to get lost. Not cut.

Self harm has always been a big struggle in my life, since seventh grade, on. And just recently I've relapsed, and started the process of quitting all over again. I think cutting comes from a deep emotional struggle, where I have troubles finding a balance of happy things versus stressful, anxiety-causing things. I use it was a tool to get lost, or escape from things that are stressing me. I guess this is a dedication to the people in my life that know, and are helping me to stop. And a way for me to tell others like me to just stay strong!
