Hun, it’s just a phase. You will outgrow these childish obsessions and the demons that haunt your dreams. Your blood will dry and scab. The clots on your skin will fall away and leave behind beautiful, tough skin. Your imperfections will make you stronger. You will find support in your scars; memories of the pain that you forced yourself to live through. You will make it. You have taken the plunge and all you have to do is wait to drift to the surface. You’ll be able to breathe again. I know you feel like your mind is drowning inside your body right now but I promise you, the feeling is only temporary. You have a lot more breathes to take.
