"Basically, we are all responsible for the preservation of our personal joy; but happiness is different. Joy is not circumstantial, happiness is. You can be depressed and still have joy. You can be suicidal and still have joy. We all stop thinking and we all stop talking and we all stop sharing and we all stop creating, because by doing any of these things we quickly find out just how unhappy we are. But that’s okay. That’s normal. Don’t let the fear of unhappiness cripple your pursuit of finding what it is you believe. Since joy is found in belief, we all have to push through unhappiness to find joy." -Twenty one Pilots
These are my arms. These arms have now gone 5 months without cutting. My scars are fading. My mind is clear. I am smiling, and its a real smile. To think that just 8 months ago these arms were bleeding and cut, and my heart was broken and it hurt just to breathe let alone function. please believe me when I say things get better. Cuts heal, whether they are internal or physical. You can do this, I promise.
