I haven't killed myself even though I really want to is that a reason to be proud?

Of course it is a reason to be proud anon. I am proud of you and I am sure there are many out there that are also proud of you today too x

tifp because even though I’ve been breaking down for the past few days and barely eating or sleeping, I still managed to clean and sing till my voice gave out while doing so and even tho I cried through some of the singing, I also laughed through some of it. I know I’m falling apart and I don’t know who I’ll be when I’m ready to pick up the pieces but I do know damn sure I’m gonna make sure I like the me I put the pieces back into!!

Singing is a powerful way of staying mindful, so keep belting out your fave tunes and stay strong x

today i felt my head going into a dark, negative, anxious place, but i was able to self-soothe quickly enough that it didn't escalate into a full blown anxiety attack, which i'm not usually able to do.

YES!! Self-soothing for the win!!

Today I felt proud that I made it to this day, even though my depression makes everything so hard for me and I tried to kill myself 2 months ago. I decided not to give up on life yet. Not to lose hope. To try to love life and myself again. And that’s something I couldn’t be prouder of. Hope you have a good day/night ❤️

There is reason to keep fighting!

ALWAYS.

Tifp late post: tifp because on drive with my mother we got to talking about a date I had with a guy who didn’t understand why “sexual assault victims never report anything” I told her right then I knew he wasn’t for me. She asked if I had ever been sexually assaulted and for the first time in 18 years, I managed to tell her a piece of that awful night. Without crying too!

Tw self harm Today I felt proud because I'm officially 2 years clean from cutting!! This is the longest I've been free from it since I started 7 years ago, when I would do it six times a day and thought I'd never be able to stop. I feel so much better about myself ever since I quit, because even if I still have urges sometimes, I know I've gained the strength over time to take care of my body instead!!!

Congratulations – this is such a nice reminder to everyone that the day you plant the seed is not the day you eat the fruit.

Today I feel proud because I was falling into depression once more but instead of isolating myself and making things worse, I made the choice to spend my time with my family. Turned the depression right around!

Good to hear you had some positive coping mechanisms kick in – remember this next time you feel yourself slipping!
