Coping really and truly IS hard. I know from personal experience. And when you feel and believe (with good reason) that no one can help you, it can become unbearable.

It is so noble to want to share your story, scars and all, in order to help others and to tell them that they aren't alone. All too often we do that when we ourselves feel all alone. That's why it's so important to reach out to people who can help. Reach out to local organizations who give support. Maybe not another home, but support nonetheless. There are child abuse hotlines and domestic violence places for example, especially in the United States and Canada.

You didn't say if you're still in this terrible environment. Though it does appear that you are not. You also didn't say just how you're doing now. The fact that you want to help others does tell me how strong you really are. So in my heart, I know that you will get through this with your head held high, very compassionate and kind. And that tells me what a wonderful person you are. I hope you know that about yourself. And if you're anything like me, don't forget to take your own really good advice. You've turned into a lovely person, in spite of what you've endured. Treat yourself with the dignity and respect you deserve. No more cutting. No more self-harm. Only self-love.

I send you love, light and healing energy. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.
