I was extremely nervous to post this but I know it will help a lot of people.
And if I get negative comments, as long as I helped at least one person, it was worth it.

I made this for people who have struggled or still struggle with self harm. I also made this for anyone who has ever been sexually abused. To let them know it can get better you just have to stay strong and keep telling yourself it will get better. You are not alone and someone is always there”
