Question self harm scars, summer coming up? HELP! - August 20th 2012, 10:27 AM

Hi i'm new to this site.
but - where i live, summer is coming up in a few weeks and at school no one will be wearing there jumpers or blazers anymore... and we also have a uniform so i won't be allowed to wear bracelets or anything like that to cover up my scars so i just don't really have to confidence to walk around school without a jumper on yet so i was wondering if anyone knew how i could quickly get some confidence to be able to go to school wearing a shirt and having everyone staring at my scars?
thanks! any answers would be good!

I stopped covering mine up ages ago. I just acted like they weren't there. The people that are important to me know what they are, but everyone else either didn't notice or just didn't bother to ask. Most people are wrapped up in their own stuff. At least that's been my experience.
Good luck!!

Hope is real. Help is real. LOVE is the movement.
