One thing I can't stress enough - "self-harm" is a very misleading term. If you self-harm, you may think that since it’s your body, it only hurts you. This, however, is not true. It hurts others, too, including God, your family, friends, your boyfriend, even those acquaintances you barely talk to.
I find myself reliving certain moments from eighth grade over and over again. Because of this time in my life, trusting people is beyond difficult for me. I am extremely self-conscious because of these girls. But, I've held on to my past for too long.
