getting better now...

The past couple of months have been helpful. I have started volunteering with youth and that helps a lot. I got a car, so the prospect of moving out is looking more like a possibility now - thank goodness! What helped more than anything was actually letting go of my Christian faith - backwards I know, but it worked. |
When "Christ is in your heart" you're supposed to pray and and have peace or whatever, and then things get better. But I let go of all my expectations of what life is supposed to be, and just try to live in the moment. And in the area where I'd been cutting, I set a goal for myself that if I can let the scars heal that I will get a symbolic tattoo over the area to mark the new chapter of my life.
I don't know where life goes from here, but I think I'll be ok...
