    Great job! You can do this! Also, have you heard of the butterfly project? If you're interested, here are the rules.

    1. When you feel like you want to self harm, take a marker, pen, or sharpies and draw a butterfly.
    2. Name the butterfly after a loved one, or someone that really wants you to get better.
    3. You must let the butterfly fade naturally, no scrubbing it off.
    4. If you self harm before the butterfly is gone, you've killed it. If you don't self harm, it lives.
    5. If you have more than one butterfly, self harming kills all of them.
    6. Another person may draw them on you. These butterflies are extra special.

    Take care :)
