Hi, I'm sweetheart :)

Hi, I'm 16 years old, I'm autistic and I've struggled with self harm for 5 years and suicide for 3 years, I'd love to meet other people who get it :blush:

    Hi @softspokensweetheart, welcome x
    The steps you take don’t need to be big, they just need to take you in the right direction.

    Welcome to the mix. Look forward to speaking with you more <3
    “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
