I managed to open up!

Today, for the first time, I actually opened up to someone about my heavy trust issues. I’m still extremely scared, but it felt good to talk about it. They managed to give me little hope, and I’m feeling slightly better.

Aaaaand, I’m 29 days clean of any sorts of self-harm. I’m really proud about myself!


Two wonderful things to celebrate! Great job! I know it’s scary to open up to someone. I’m really glad to hear they were able to hear and support you. And 29 days free of self harm is amazing! :heart:

Thank you all, for the sweet words! I really appreciate it.
I’m at one month now, and so far I haven’t felt like I’m gonna relapse. I am REALLY proud of myself. Yeah, some days were harder than others but overall manageable. It makes me happy.


It can be extremely difficult to open up to anyone about trust issues, so majorly well done on that! I hope they are able to support you and keep that line of communication open. <3

Also - a month of no self-harm is a huge accomplishment, very much worth being happy and proud about!!
