The beauty of my scars finally fading. I never knew that recovery was possible but these things that used to control me are now white and almost unnoticeable.

IMPORTANT PSA

perksofbeingawallturtle:

guys, my 16th birthday will be my 4-month recovery anniversary.

I know this probably means absolutely nothing to any of you, but for me this is a huge deal. 4 months is a long time, and some real shit has happened in that time span.

I just felt like sharing this with you guys. i guess i jut wanted someone to see a good story today, maybe it could give someone a little sunshine, brighten their day a bit, or give them enough hope to move on to tomorrow.

“You should stop
while you can
trying to find peace
in the sloping
nothingness
between your thighs.
Stop writing prayers
singing hallelujahs
building temples
for the concave valleys
of your flesh.
These are not things
to cherish,
these are not
goals to be had.
The burns and wounds
will become
thick knots on your
tree trunked limbs
and you will relish in the
rings of wrinkles
your fingers
will allow.
You will flourish
in the years
that were once
guaranteed
to be stolen.
You will grow towards the sun.”
Michelle K., Allowed. (via michellekpoems)
“i have spent
my whole adulthood
trying to tame
my hunger.
i wish i had instead,
learned
to sate myself.”
m.v., I don’t want to be perfect, I want to be happy. (via findingwordsforthoughts)

faraashah:

westerners are obsessed with the idea of happiness as if it’s a constant state of being. happiness comes in moments. you dont “achieve” happiness. you experience it along with every other emotion on the spectrum. if you spend your life chasing this constructed idea of happiness you will never even be remotely content. work on being whole and feeling everything while increasing the happy moments. stop trying to be a “happy person.” just be a person.

If you didn’t cut last night, I’m proud of you. 


If you didn’t purge last night, I’m proud of you. 


If you ate something last night, I’m proud of you. 


If you calmed yourself down during an anxiety attack, I’m proud of you.


If you didn’t let the bullies get to you, I’m proud of you. 


If you stayed alive for another night, I’m proud of you.

I’m not where I need to be, but thank God I’m not where I used to be.”

(via satansbuttcrack)

“I used to spend so much time reacting and responding to everyone else that my life had no direction. Other people’s lives, problems, and wants set the course for my life. Once I realized it was okay for me to think about and identify what I wanted, remarkable things began to take place in my life.”
