I wore my black ribbon today for self-harm awareness day. I noticed my friend wore one, too. We encouraged each other, and I feel like we got that much stronger. Stay strong, guys. I have cut, starved myself, and seriously considered and almost went through with suicide. But I’m alive today. I survived. I’m stronger because of it. I still struggle with depression and urges/temptations, but I’m getting there, one day at a time.

If anyone ever needs someone to talk to, or someone who will listen to them without judgement, I’m here. Seriously, I’m only a message away. I care.
