    • At first I was ashamed of my scars and what I was doing to myself, and I still am. I use to hid them constantly and never allow people to see my body. I finally ended up telling the boy I was seeing at the time and he was so understanding and so helpful he took everything away for me he was my safe haven… Once more people found out they couldnt believe it. My parents couldnt. My friends, teachers. Noone. I was too “full of life.” Noone beleived me until I showed them cuts or the scars on my body.

    When I started Self Harming, I didn’t tell anyone. This went on for years. But it climaxed; I got to a point where someone had to know, I had to tell someone. I was having mood swings at school and when people upset me, I’d run to the toilet and cut myself. One time, when someone upset me, I walked out of my classroom and the teacher followed. He asked what was wrong and I, at first, said I was just annoyed at what the other person said. But I trusted this teacher, he was more of a friend. When he asked me to write it all down, I wrote that I was going to cut myself and have cut myself in the past. I gave it to him and he took me away from class. We now have regular meetings to ensure I don’t cut again and don’t get myself into a depressed state. He was the first person I told. 

    The second person I told was my best friend. She didn’t act weird because she understood why I did it. She kept trying to deny my reasons why I do it but I didn’t listen. It helps having someone there, but sometimes they can’t make you change your mind.
