It's A Relief
Of course I want to stop hurting myself. But the sensation you get whenever you hurt yourself, there’s nothing like it. Puking, you know there’s a chnace you could lose weight. Cutting, you’re hurting yourself. B/c you feel like you deserve it, or you do it so that you can atleast feel something, even if it is pain, or you’re just so upset and you don’t know what to do anymore.. so you self harm.
