Communicate. That’s the biggest and best first thing you can ever do. Whether it be with a teacher, sibling, friend, parent or even a counselor. Being able to communicate is the first step to your life getting better. It doesn’t have to be even talking; it can be a letter or email or text…let people know what’s going on in your life, your thoughts and emotions.

People can and will help you, you just need to search them out. Oh and one last thing, never EVER let someone bring you down. You’re you, and you is always good enough. Never stray from who you are because you never know who will come along and want and love “you”.

Things To Remember

  • Don’t be angry at yourself when anxiety/depression flares up. It isn’t your fault and no one blames you and if they do they’re pieces of shit.
  • Don’t orbit around your perceived value so much. You’re not the sum total of what you produce.
  • Don’t let yourself wonder why people love you. That’s not how it works. There are not stark, individual reasons that a person can enumerate about why they love you. It’s the entire, unique combination of what and who you are.

Anonymous asked: Some time ago two of my closest friends started cutting cause they think it's cool and punk and when I told them that I've been cutting for a while they told me 'wow cool now we have more in common' I'm so angry, how do I tell them it's not a joke?

Man, I’m sorry but are you sure those are really friends who want to have? Cutting is a very serious thing that should never be taken lightly and what they are doing is very uncool. 

If you still want to forward the relationship I would suggest showing them that it is not a joke. Have you let them see your cuts/scars? It’s more than just a fad and I’m sure theirs are shallow and superficial, whereas a person who does for a legitimate release would be deeper less exact, it would show more passion than a couple of bic razor marks.

You could show them this blog and let them see that cutting is something that people struggle to hide and bury because they are ashamed and afraid of getting caught, not trying to show them off and fit in.

And honestly I’m sorry if I seem a little harsh, but what they are doing makes me very upset. I don’t know them personally so obviously I’m removing a lot of that emotion that comes with the friendship and I do apologize, but I’m just not sure I wouldn’t be able to keep from slapping the hell out of them the next time they brought it up.

Anonymous asked: How do I get rid of the blood? I just previously cut and I don't know what to do to hide the blood and to make it stop. My parents are asleep and I usually use scissors, but I kind of used a sharper blade this time. I'm really worried that they'll find out.

Go to the part where it says ‘TAKE CARE OF WOUNDS’, there you have instructions of what to do. It’s normal that the wound bleeds more when you use a blade, you need to be very careful with that. If you ever need anything, please remember we’re here for you. Take care darling x

mybitterself asked: i just relapsed after a few months of being clean. i usually don't cut on my wrists, i cut on my thighs but last night i did a few cuts on my wrist and i dont want anyone to see. and i can't really wear bracelets, because the cuts are halfway up my forearm. please help x

Remain calm dear. It’s not the end of the world. You’re still recovering nicely people relapse all the time it’s apart of the journey. What I would recommend would be to get an ace bandage and wrap your arm up like you’ve sprained your wrist. It will be a good excuse and will last long enough for them to heal.

Anxiety & Helping Someone Cope. 
I didn’t want to make it overwhelming or too long remember, so I kept it to the main points that benefit me greatly when I’m experiencing an attack.
40 million of Americans alone suffer with anxiety; it’s a horrid feeling when you know someone just wants to help you but you cannot even construct a simple sentence at the time, so please share this in hope that it benefits even just 1 person. Muchos love.

Anonymous asked: Hi it's me, the one with the fear of death. I've worked up the courage and I decided I'm going to tell my parents how I feel. I could use some luck so wish me luck and thank you for your advice. Really..I mean it... Thank you so much.

Hello love :) I’m so proud of you! I really mean it. Both of us wish you the best of luck! xx But I believe you don’t need it, you have everything you need with you.
