Unhappy I made a promis to my cousin, but i need to break it to be happy - March 5th 2012, 06:43 PM

My cousin is in jail (he stole a car and set it on fire), and we've been writing letters back and forth. In the last letter he wrote me, he said that if I stopped cutting, he would stop getting in trouble. I promised him i would stop cutting, just because I HATE THE FACT THAT HE IS IN JAIL, and i would do anything to keep him out of jail and out of trouble. He's my favorite cousin and I haven't seen him in 5 years. He's 20 and I'm 13. The problem is, I need to cut myself to be happy. I'm addicted, and i thought this would help me stop, but it's just been making it worse. He has 2 years and 11 months left in jail. And I just need to cut, with out it I feel like I can't do anything. He's not a bad person, he's just from a really messed up family, he's 1 of 8 children. And we all have problems, like cutting is mine. I just really need help with this.


It takes more courage to suffer than to die.

Well, there's your problem.

You don't need to cut to be happy. No one does. I hate to say it, but you're 13...you're going to have a lot bigger issues in your life then what you're dealing with right now, trust me. If you teach your mind that the ONLY way to be happy is to hurt yourself, what are you going to do when things actually get bad?

I don't want you hurting yourself. Find other ways to keep you happy. Go out with friends~

If you don't have any, NEITHER DO I BE MUH FRIEND <3

But no seriously, do stuff that keeps your mind occupied. It'll help.

You don't need to cut to be happy. You cut to take away the mask of stress and anger and sadness the rest of your life causes you. The happiness is there, it's just smothered by the rest of those awful feelings. I know from personal experience. You need just to get over that wall and be free of that. Whether that be talking to a therapist, getting medication, or just your own personal journey you will have to take, you can get there. You just have to be willing to do what it takes. And it is hard, i won't lie but i can tell you it's worth it.


Are you always sad? Someone asked.
(Always is such a long, long time)
I couldn't say. But
If sadness was a sea, I'd drown in it.
(Salty and warm, sadness is.)
(Cold, too. Sometimes)
And I happen to love the sea.


And I watched your words burn tiny holes
into my retinas. Just wide enough to crawl into,
And forget you ever were.
