"But instead of making cutting what you control, make not cutting what you control. You can choose to wake up in the morning and feel okay because you chose not to make things harder. To say, ‘Crap is already hard enough. I have not made it harder, I’m on my own side."
I don’t usually say i’m okay, but I say i’m Fine all the time and it really means anything but. I do say that I am okay as well but its not usually as bad as if I say I’m fine.
If you really think about it everyone has something to prove all the time, if you already have good grade and are a good student then you have to still prove that as well, prove that it wasn’t just a couple of good semesters prove that it is not a fluke and you really are that person. If you have struggled in life and have problems with drinking, drugs, sex, or depression/cutting… then you have to prove that you are not the labels that society has placed on you, that you are a real person and that you are worth more than a label… So always take the challenges head on.
