Not Strong Enough.

by Emily
(Somewhere, United States)

My best friend had a hard home life, she was anorexic, and she cut herself. I tried to stay strong and help her, but I couldn't. I was going through a hard time in life myself and I couldn't help her with her issues and keep mine up too. I had never cut before, but I had seen hers and she had told me how it helped. Well, I tried cutting. One cut. That's all I was going to do. It would fix things and I could carry on my life. But one cut turned into two cuts. And two cuts turned into ten cuts. I was addicted. I couldn't help it. I wouldn't realize how many I would do at once. I needed help. Bad. So I began to look up ways for help on the Internet. The butterfly challenge is what helped me. If you don't know about it, look it up. But I also told my Youth Leader at church. He helped more than anything. I can say that God has healed me now, yes I still struggle from day to day, but I haven't cut in over 2 years. I knew it wouldn't be an overnight fix. But I'm thankful I've come this far. Praise Jesus. :) without Him, I am nothing. I owe my all to Him.
Still Recovering. But thankful God has brought me this far.
