    Mixed feelings...

    • Yes, I want to stop self harming myself, because not only am I hurting myself physically, but i’m hurting others emotionally. Very few people know that  I self harm, but sometimes that’s all it takes to change your mind about it. I always put others before myself, and with self harm I can’t really do that.. I make others upset and I make them suffer in despair. When I self injure, i’m putting me infront of everyone. I’m only thinking of myself, but at the moment, that’s all I really need to do sometimes. I want to stop, but I know that it’s hard, i’ve tried before and no success. I just know that when and if I do stop, that I won’t have any way to cope with my emotions. I’ve read some of what others say, and I agree with most, yes it’s “bad” and it’s even worse for people that have to suffer through watching you do this to yourself but I also agree with people that said no to stopping because it helps, trust me I know it does, and I feel better when doing it but then there’s that after feeling the next day realizing that all I’m doing when I self harm is putting my problems away and just making it worse when I have to actually deal with it, and I know I need to stop doing that or I know how bad things can get. I just don’t know what to do about anything, or how to deal with it, or how to go about any of this.
