it hard to stop
self injury is verry difficult to explan as so many people do it for so many difforent reasons. once u start its hard to stop, at least it was in my case. it becomes an addiction, untill its so bad u risk dying of it. its a constant struggle even when u have stped, if uv managed, because the thought of doing it again can come back when u least expect it. it can be weeks, months, or years. for me persinaly, most of the time i dont want to stop cutting because im addictied to it, but at the same time i wish i could stop! its like two pulls, alot of people feel this, the guilt and shame yet the release of the iner pain from cutting is so contreversal u feel traped. i have stoped now for almost a year, but i do have occasional spells were i do it. the trik is to hold on to the good stuff that happens when ur not cutting. talk to people, and if they dont accept u then there not the right poeple, fined some more. my sister was alsow a self harmer, she found refuge in a therapist and a diary. i found it in a boy who makes me promiss evory night not to do it. believe it or not u need poeple and u cant just push them away, wether they be online chats, a friend, therapists, a help line, anyone can help u. and alsow try and stay away from trigers such as other non recovering self harmers or images n videos of self harm, thoes can just make u ant to do it more. i hope one day all self harmers can stop wanting ti hurt themselfs, but for that to happen we hafta stop hurting others n getting hurt.
