Unhappy It just sort of happened :( - July 18th 2012, 08:35 AM

Today i got bullied, kicked into the mud, and told to kill myself all in 2 hours at school.

I got home and had to deal with my bitch of a sister.
I ran to my room and pulled the blade out of the stanly knife. I cried and told myself that i shouldn't because I've been self-harm free for 3 months now (I was proud of that) Then it happened i just lunged in without thinking about it. I harmed myself again and it didn't make anything better (It never does anyway) I hate myself for it, and i hate the fact i didn't even think about it i just did it....

Everything happens for a reason, even if we may never know what that reason is

When your dreaming with a broken heart, The waking up is the hardest part </3

Hi Meghan!

What an awful day. I am VERY sorry to hear that you had to go through all of that. Rest assured.... you were not bullied because of who YOU are. You were bullied because of who the bullies are. Do you understand that? If not - keep repeating it to yourself. I was bullied a lot when I was in school. And I blamed myself for what THEY did. "I must deserve it. Otherwise WHY would THEY do all of those awful things to me!" That LIE is something victims of abuse [And bullying IS abuse] tell themselves all the time. BUT IT'S STILL A LIE. And a LIE is a LIE no matter how many times you say it. I also ended up becoming my OWN bully. Just like you did. And that's very common too.

But tomorrow is a new day. The bullies will still be rotten and mean. [Because that's what bullies do best!] And you still won't be able to change THEM. But you CAN change how YOU respond to what they do. You need ONE person in this world that YOU can count on. And that ONE PERSON is going to have to be YOU!!

So be NICE to YOU!!! Because YOU deserve to be treated with kindness, compassion AND respect. So the next time you feel like hurting yourself... STOP and tell yourself [OUT LOUD IF YOU HAVE TO] "I am NOT going to become my OWN bully! I am going to be NICE TO ME!"

GREAT BIG HUG
Craig!!
