Today I am absolutely beyond proud of myself. 

Today marks 12 months – 1 whole year – clean from self-harm and I am so unbelievably proud. It was not easy. It was very hard, but I am so lucky to be where I am today. I honestly couldn’t be anymore thankful than I already am. I am so grateful for all the support I had (not naming names coz there is a lot) but if you know who you are I really do thank you all for supporting me through this hard time. 

It has been a roller coaster but I cannot stop smiling. Wow. So much has changed in a year. 

I really do appreciate each and every one of you for never giving up on me and showing me that I can do this. Honestly I have never felt so proud of myself, ever… and it’s honestly the best feeling in the world. 

Woah. ONE YEAR CLEAN and I want to say a big thank you too my GORGEOUS mum for been my biggest support and helping me through this rough patch. Mum I really hope your proud of me and I hope I’m making pop proud too. I love you both so much.

Also, a big thank you too to Shaz and Maree because you guys met me when I was at my absolute lowest. 

I didn’t want to be alive, and now it’s been a year since my last self-harm. You guys supported me through the bad days and the good days. I really am grateful for you guys thank you so much for everything, you two beautiful souls.

If anyone is ever going through self-harm or suicidal thoughts please reach out to Youth Insearch. Trust me if I can do it so can so many others. You’re all beautiful and this goes for guys as well. Be proud of yourself, don’t give up, you’re only young.
