I am a failure. And success is never enough.

For me, addiction and self harm are very much the same thing. Both change how I feel, the current state in my brain. I am very much where you are... I wonder tho, instead of "finding" a new opportunity, what about "creating" one? We are truly the only ones who will fight for us... no one else can really be depended on completely... the point, for me, is to show myself that I am NOT a failure and that I am worth fighting for.

Today could have been one, but I found the last bandaid in the house.

Do you want to talk? This is very hard to beat without help...

I offer you a gentle hug and a soft embrace...

It would seem it's impossible to beat without help. But that's ok. I accepted that a long time ago.

Can you see that is an issue? You have accepted something that should not be accepted. You can beat this. Do you want to beat this? I would understand if you said "no." I was there. I for a long time like what I was doing. It took others to help me see I could beat this and so can you.

I don't like it but I'm not in a place where I could stop. I know it's wrong to accept but for now it's easier to do that than trying to stop and failing repeatedly.

I understand. It is very sad but I know the story. Try to be safe...
