My mom just recently found out that I’ve been struggling with self harm for quite some time now. I never told her because I thought she would flip on me and be disappointed. When it finally did come out, she didn’t flip at all. Instead she was calm and let me explain things. Ever since then I have started to see the bright side of things. I want to get better and wake up not feeling like shit everyday.
Today I came home to see my mom in the kitchen. She handed me a journal and I told her I already had one. She nodded and said, “well this is a happy journal ” with a smile. I brought it upstairs and read the first page. I teared up realizing that she had written down lyrics to ‘You’re Not Alone’ by Of Mice and Men. One of the bands that has gotten me through everything.
Thanks mommy, I know you’ll be there for me no matter what. I’m not alone anymore❤️
