[female, age 19, began to SI at age 17]
By Draco Malfoy,
Not until after i started SI. Then i started realizing i knew others who did it too. Now i know of at least three people who still actively hurt themselves. Yeah, they totally have an effect on my SI. If i’m feeling like i want to cut, and i see their scars, it makes it harder to not cut. It triggers me into doing it when i really didn’t want to. It kind of subconsciously makes me feel like what i do is ok cause they’re doing it too (even though i know it’s not ok).
