“In this photo the eye sees a basic pair of scissors. The unseen story is that these scissors are a constant reminder of how I control my emotions. They amost state at me, tell me to cut myself, before me to relapse back into my old bad habits. They’re constantly there in my mind, easily accessible for when I’m upset. Cutting has always been a coping method for me through my depression. OVer the past 6 or more months I’ve been able to control myself more and not harm myself, but just talking about makes me want to, almost like an addiction. This image can educate people to have more self control and find other , more healthy coping mechanisms. I can use this picture to inspire myself to stay clean and try to control my emotions better. And also not to obsess over the thought of my scissors always being close by”.
