Postsecret.com - Cutting - Woh!
Sometimes I forget to go check out postsecret.com. But I just did, and I saw this postcard above! I literally stopped breathing for a second and got all teary. My thoughts that would drive me to cut are less, and I don't act on them, but sometimes they flit on through. I feel too embarrassed to blog about the cutting thoughts even though that's why I put this blog up in the first place. They mostly have to do with virginity. The cutting thoughts to do with being gay are almost all gone since I've come out, well except for when I am really angry about something re: coming out and then I am hyper intentional and careful with myself. And...finding other ways to cope and face internal pain is SOOOOOO worth it. I also thought of a couple people I have known who have cut or self harmed when I saw this. One person in particular....who I hope is taking care of herself! And whoever this postcard was written for, I also hope that they share their demons.....with someone!
