Today is a fucking great day.

Hey everyone,

Welcome back to crazy little things! I hope everyone is doing ok and if you are not, well that is ok too because you don’t have to be ok all the time as you are only human. Today is a special day and a day that is coming less surprising every year. There are many achievements a person can go through when comes to mental illness or mental health problems and these achievements whether small or big is something we should cherish. In acknowledgment of this anniversary, I have spent a couple of days working on this piece of art.

We are Mosaics – we are made up of the good things, the bad things, the loses and the achievements. We are beautiful mosaics.

As today marks 7 years self-harm free. It hasn’t been an easy 7 years and there has been plenty of times where I thought that the urges to self-harm were going to win but here I am. It is a strange anniversary as it is not something that I can celebrate with people as it is something that I hid very well and the few people that know about it now only know me as self-harm free. So to those of you who are still struggling with it, it can get better and there were plenty of times before where I relapsed but day by day, week by week and month by month it gets easier. 

Self-harm is more than just a mark to the skin it goes much deeper than that and it doesn’t make you weak, far fucking from it. Life doesn’t come with an instruction manual, dealing with pain, loss, hurt, anger and everything else is hard and on top of that not being able to trust your own mind, now tell me how does dealing with those things make you weak. It has taken me a long time to start learning to accept my scars inside and out but with small steps, I got here, I got to 7 years.

So today’s good shit and bad shit is a simple one.

Good shit

β€’ I am 7 years self-harm free.

Bad shit

β€’ Fuck any bad shit, as nothing I mean nothing can take this victory away from me.

Take care,
Vixxy Rose

  1. This was wonderful to read. Happy 7th anniversary of rebirth to you… it is incredible to look back on really, having the battle scars but knowing you have become stronger.

    I love the mosaic analogy, so so on the mark! I once thought of things like that and it is a really comforting mental image. Take care πŸ™‚
