Hi, my name is Artemis!

ArtemisArtemis Posts: 1 Just got here
Heyo, I'm Artemis, a 13 year old fighting my way through my self harm addiction, depression, and anxiety. I'm most likely bi. I love all sorts of animals and enjoy reading and listening to music. It's a hard journey to get better, but now that my cousin has started thinking about self-harming, I'm close to falling back in it. I'm trying to raise her up without drowning myself.
We've been lost, been to the bottom. Beaten up, torn and forgotten. Still we fight, we will survive. Can't kill the fire we feel inside. We've been burned, drained and depleted. Left alone, we're not defeated. Still we fight, we will survive. Can't kill the fire we feel inside. You can't, you can't kill us. You can't, you can't kill us

    ' So I put a bullet where I shouda put a helmet, and I crash my car cause I wanna get carried away, that's why I'm standing on the overpass screaming at myself 'hey, I wanna get better''

    “And when they look at you, they won't see everything you've been through. They won't see the **** that turned to scars that began to fade with time. They won't see the heartbreaking things that shook up and changed your entire world. They won't know how many tears you cried or even what it was you were crying about. They won't see how strong you had to be because you had no other choice. What they will see though is how compassionate you are because you experienced pain. What they will see is how kind you are because you experienced how cruel the world is. What they will see is how good you are because you've seen how bad things or people can be. The difference between you and your experiences are who you choose to be, despite everything that could have turned you cold and unkind.You are the good the world needs and the best of us.” ~ Kirsten Corley

    Welcome to the boards @Artemis

    I'm so sorry to hear what you're going through. It's really positive that you've come here to reach out for support. We're all here to support you through this <3

    See you around 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 ❤
