I wrote this to mark one year of not self-harming. For me, dealing with this was one of the hardest things I have ever done. But I did it. I beat the cycle. It was hard, I had my moments of insanity because I was fighting the urge, but I did it. I share this not as an attention seeker, but as a victorious person who wants to share that victory with everyone. Don't suffer in silence. If you're struggling, PLEASE talk to someone – you can beat this.
