Hi, I figured I'd introduce myself. I'm 23 and I self harm, I have a history of being abused and related mental health problems. I'm learning to deal with it though.

    Hello Flying_hope welcome to the boards :)
    Maybe somethings don't get better, but we do. We get stronger. We learn to live with our situations as messy and ugly as they are. We fix what we can and we adapt to what we can't. Maybe some of us will never fully be okay, but at least we're here. We're still trying. We're doing the best we can. That's worth celebrating too ❤

    Hi, I am new, too!

    Hey Damian, and welcome to the community. :wave:

    This thread is over a year old now, so I've closed it. We generally don't resurrect threads older than a couple of months, and particularly for introduction posts, it's best to create your own fresh one. :)

    Happy posting!
