Right now i am three months free of self harming :) I've gone longer, but this time I haven't even had the urge to hurt myself. I feel so free not having to worry about all the hiding and lies. It's amazing.
And through this experience, I was able to help out my friend who's dealing with self injury as well. Because of that, I have a greater sense of purpose on this earth and knowing that i could help even just one person made a huge difference.
