I have self injured since I was 7. My parents have always told me i wasnt good enough and my father dislikes me because i am his firstborn and i am a girl. I don’t understand it myself. I si when i’m mad, sad, happy, lonely, having fun. I si whenever i get emotional one way or another.I get desperate when i dont cut, too. I break open pencil sharpeners for the blades. I wear my scars proudly and my parents are still utterly clueless to the fact that i harm myself or that they inspired me to.
Person [female, age 14, began to SI at age 7, middle school student]
