I Have Many Scars

My Body Is Scarred... I have so many scars all of them are self inflicted.
My Self hatred got me there i was a worst cutter there was a period i used to cut myself like atleast 50 times a day and this limit i use to cross every other day some days like 100,120,150, 200 and i guess the maximum i would have done is 250 i guess
these thousands of scars are at my thighs and legs always covered up with clothes thank god no one could notice them

Well i have 70 scars on my left wrist and since i am right handed only 8 scars on right wrist

There was a time when i was depressed alot and was proud of these scars and wanted to do worse but now a days i hate these scars and want them to go away
I am trying to recover from cuttin and i hope i do get over it

i have scars on my arms, sides, and thighs from all the cutting i have done over several years. its who i am. i have learned to accept me as i am but other ppl sometimes get freaked out when they see them. i wear alot of longsleeve running shirts that are cool but cover up my scars. miami isnt the easiest place to wear long sleeves ha. but im learning to just let ppl see them. ive been on the beach many times now without my shirt wearing just my board shorts and some ppl notice n say nothing and some ppl give me weird looks. rarely do they say anything about them. i have a friend that on here that convinced me to just show them off and that changed how i see them myself. i still cut but not as often, but when i do cut i usually make up for all the times i made myself stop.
you shouldnt be ashamed of your scars, im learning that slowly, but think of them as battle scars. something to be proud of. you survived all those bad times, each and every one has a deep meaning and you dealt with it and moved on to a new day. nobody will ever understand how or why we cut unless they have experienced it themselves and alot of ppl dont know what they are looking at when they do see them so dont be afraid to show them off. they prove you are a survivor and that you have overcome all the bad shit.
