I'm reorganising/redecorating my room. My bedroom feels like my safe space. It means a lot to me that its comfortable and looks away I like because in a way it is a reflection of me.

Warning! Talk of self-harm. My lowest points were when I hurt myself. You never really believe you could hate yourself so much. My self-harm is not continued and I have not per mantle marked myself. I have been self-harm free since April and want to stay that way but sometimes the urge is so strong. … Continue reading Fighting the urge
3/5 This short vampire novella was an interesting but not life changing read. The plot is simple and the “twist” is easily guessed about halfway into the books.
