I started self-harming when I was fourteen and it continued until right after my sixteenth birthday. It took the near suicide of one of my best friends to realize how dangerous this habit was. I was seriously depressed and it was totally God who helped me climb out of the hole depression was holding me in.
However, I am now seventeen and struggling again with this. I haven’t cut in over a year and I want to keep that going. I want to say I was strong and defeated self-harm and depression but it’s getting so hard! I almost relapsed last night (06/06) but found a rubber band and started snapping that against my wrist instead. It helped me curb the urge to cut but it’s getting worse. It’s been building for a long time and it’s getting difficult.
I want to stay strong. I don’t feel depressed at all and I’m confused. I need God and I feel close to Him but I also feel so far away when it comes to this topic.

Hello, I don’t know if I’ll have the right words here or even the right idea, but I want you to know that I read your post, and it made me want to encourage you somehow. I can only imagine your hardships and I understand the loneliness. I don’t want to necessarily give you advice, because I know that it doesn’t always help. I will tell you that, even though I don’t know you, you are a special person here for a special reason. I want you to know that while I was reading this, I felt for you, and know that God will always love you, whether or not you harm yourself. His love is always there even when it does not seem like it, and it always will be no matter what happens. I can only imagine how difficult this is for you, but I wanted you to know I care. Sincerely, Catherine
