I noticed that one way I changed as a person over the years is that my negative experiences with things no longer makes me bitter as much as it makes me want to change it and do things to help other people and the world
Maybe I’m just crazy and up late but I think it’s almost comforting when you self harm, to know that you have your own secrets all to yourself under your sleeve. A thing to turn to. When you’re in public and smile, and they have no idea. They don’t care. This is why it’s hard to quit, people get more comfort from the sight of their blood than from other people.
