My life

Please note: this piece references self-harm

It all started when I was 10 when I lost my sister  At the moment I was 10 not knowing what to do with my self . I had 4 younger siblings and they looked up to me everyday as thier role model I knows I couldn’t leave them I always had hope. My parents are lovely people and they didn’t deserve this and I knew my sisters didn’t ethier .everyday was hard and no matter what happened we never gave up I was dignosed with mental health problems at the age of 11 and I never thought I would get through my life but obviously I have so far I’m currently 17 years old . School was a big problem for me I have been bullied and knocked down but I always got up because I knew I always had hope I would go to my bedroom every afternoon and I would write down all my thoughts and then I would go burn them that means that my thoughts are now gone tomorrow is a new day new beginnings new experience once a day goes by u can never relive that day . I spent a lot of time on my own because I knew no one else would be thier forever and I new I was strong enough to live it alone I would tell my self each day that things will be okay and I believed in my self. Believing in ur self is the biggest thing if u don’t believe in ur self how can anyone else believe in you?? They don’t always speak. up about anything even if u just write it down or something as I said before I did get bullied and had self harm and it did leave nasty scars but as life goes on I decided to draw pen wear I wanted to cut because it still feels the same but the pain washes away u can always change ur self and it starts with u no one else can do it for u only u can let it in no else can change the voice in ur head so this is apart of my story make ur self feel like feel like ur special no one else like u and thier isn’t hope u enjoyed reading my story and always remember if ur hurting don’t give up on ur self because god lets the strongest ones live and if he thinks you don’t belong here then he wouldn’t of let you come world at all keeping going just like I am I’m a successful I’m doing childcare with my passion let’s see u do ur too self
