Hey there,

I'm sorry that you're going through all this.

Have you considered seeking professional help? They would be able to help you deal with the reason behind your self-harm effectively, and perhaps even solve your depression.

Hi there,

I'm really sorry that things are tough for you right now. It sounds like you're going through a bad time and I'm glad you've come to us here at Teenhelp for some help and support.

From what you're saying it sounds like you're self harming because you can't cope with the abuse and the way people are treating you in life. Do you want to talk more about it? It might help, it might not but maybe it's worth the try? I know it's hard to talk about things that are so personal but if they are affecting you that much then I suggest you try and have a go. We won't judge you but we will try to help you through it and support you as much as we can do.

Self harm isn't going to help you in the long run. Its a temporary solution to a long term problem. It might help for a few seconds or minutes, but that's all and I and know that because I have been there myself. It feels so good in the moment and takes all the emotional pain away, right? Because all you can feel is the physical pain. But sooner or later the emotional pain kicks back in and you're back in the same place that you started so actually, self harming is pointless but addictive.

Have you looked at our list of alternatives? If not I suggest to do so. And writing is a really good way to cope with urges so well done for coming u with that. We're always here for you to talk to and so are other people so never be alone.

I hope this helps,
