cas I deserve it
When I self harm I always remind myself that I deserve it, that I’m a bad person just because of the way that I am. I feel that if I was normal I wouldn’t have been bullied, or forced out of school! I am lonely because I cant make friends and so I feel I have brought it all on myself, therefore I deserve to feel like I do and I need to be punished.
