Pain is temporary. It may last a minute, or an hour, or a day, or a year, but eventually it will subside and something else will take its place. If I quit, however, it lasts forever.'

I wouldn't recommended self harm or getting drunk. You need to remember that both are only very temporary solutions and will make everything a lot worse afterwards. Just think, in the time that you're blocking everything out by getting drunk you could be talking it out and you could get the help that you need..

I'd urge you strongly to talk to someone, and just see how it goes. If you want you can send me a PM, and I'll be glad to talk to you. Just don't do anything extreme and remember that you've only got the one body, and no matter what anyone ever says it's beautiful and unique. Don't hurt it, because you'll regret it later when the pain is gone. And it will go away, it's only a matter of time.

Keep hope, and I urge you to let me know if you need to talk.

Alex.

Hi Lea

Getting drunk and self harming isnt the right path to go down. Its a self destructive pattern and you need to get better. Not worse.

Instead of doing those things, why dont you try and do something positive or constructive. I know its harder said than done. But the more you do something constructive, the easier it becomes.

Talk to someone, instead of negative behaviours. Everytime you do something negative you are stopping something positive.

Positive things could include writing, watching TV, having a bath.

You can get through this...I still believe in you.

Take care and PM if you want

Jamie

Hey Lea,

I'm sorry that you were feeling so down. Anything going on that you want to talk about?

You definitely don't seem like a stupid or self-centered teenager or anything. Those are some really big and really thoughtful questions that you asked - kinda impressive, actually, that you decided to grapple with those.

So, I believe that there is more than just this life. But I also believe that hanging in there and finding the happiness that's just as valid in this life is important, too. Yeah, there maybe something better, but there's good to be found right now, too.

I don't know why, even though there might be something better, things still hurt right now. I suppose there are a lot of different answers. But sometimes, I think it helps more not to focus on "why do I hurt right now" but rather on "what will help me take care of myself even when I am hurting?"

Hang in there, Lea. You matter a lot, and you're definitely cared about. Please try to take care of yourself - you're definitely worth it.

PM me anytime.


Drown in the music,
dance in the rain,
block out the thunder,
and let the scars fade.
