1,000 days

24,000 hours

1,440,000 minutes

86,400,000 seconds

since i last took a razor to my fragile skin

since i felt the need to cut myself out of my own body

since i felt like i had to see my blood to feel like i’m alive

i’m not cured, i am so far from cured

but i don’t need that anymore

i don’t need to tear myself open to remind myself i am alive

so cheers to 1,000 days, here’s to the next 1,000 and the 2,000 after that and so on for the rest of my life

Sometimes we motivate ourselves by thinking of what we want to become. Sometimes we motivate ourselves by thinking about who we don’t ever want to be again. – Shane Niemeyer
