Blood (Writing 101: Day Fourteen)

Dear myself 3 years ago,

I understand what you’re dealing with, but you’ll survive. Obviously, you’ll last after it’s over. The pain  you’re dealing with will become easier.

The tool near you doesn’t have to be a tool of pain anymore. The blood around you can be erased from everyone else’s worries.

Don’t worry about what others think of you. Don’t think about the problems that caused it. Take it one day at a time. Take all the time you need to recover. In the end it’ll work.

Every drop of blood that’s there isn’t something that shows your weakness. It’s the strength you have inside of you that you’re ignoring.

The scabs can be healed and the blood will be erased.

Use this as a way to learn from your mistakes and move on. I know it’s possible; I did it. Just keep your memories lighter, even about this; I know that seems impossible.

From, Yourself at 17 & 1/2 years old.


Anyone whose dealt with this before will understand what I’m talking about. I’m sorry to anyone that can relate to it and be grateful if you aren’t.

I’m quite thankful to have recovered from it myself.

  1. I think going through the teenage time is one of the hardest times, feelings get so intense and you are really dealing with it really head on at that time. and also we all do what we have to, to deal with our own pain. I don’t think another person has the right to judge anyone else for it because no one else knows what its like to live in your skin.

    1. As I said, it was a 3 years ago type of thing. It’s done. I don’t do it anymore. Thanks for the comment. What do you think of my writing of it?

  2. So glad that you have lived and learnt. Many lessons are taught from adolescence and I have learnt many difficult ones myself. Congratulations on the freedom of your blood. You have written it beautifully and solicited empathy rather than sympathy. Well done
