What's your question?
I go to the high school but I’m really struggling. I have a lot, and I mean a lot of self-harm scars, and I’m over it, but they're just really ugly and pink and bumpy, and I don’t wear short sleeves because of it. I’m worried my crush will judge me for them because everyone I know does, and they just disgust me to look at. There are no home remedies that work and idk what to do. I haven’t worn short sleeves in public for over a year.
Thank you for writing. My heart goes out to you. This has to be so hard. First, congratulations on being able to move past the self-harm. That's no small thing! I'm proud of you. I really am. That leads me to the advice that I have for you: I want you to be proud as well. Think about what you've been able to overcome! It's nothing short of miraculous. You're amazing! I want you to recognize that you earned those scars. Those scars are a book that tell your story of strength and willingness to keep going in the face of impossible odds. Every hero that I can think of has scars that they earned while becoming the person they are. I hope you believe me when I tell you that you are my hero. I hope to become as strong as you. Some people will always look at your scars and cast judgement. Let them. Be glad that they are only jerks because they don't understand what you've been through. Be grateful that they are so ignorant; it means they haven't suffered.
Lastly, please understand that you are not alone. Mental illness is the largest club in the world, but every member thinks they're the only one! I'm a member, and I'm proud to say that I stand with you. Good luck!
