Just rise above this
Kill them with your kindness
Ignorance is blindness
They're the ones that stand to lose

'Cause they don't even know you
All they see is SCARS
They don't see the ANGEL
Living in your heart

Hey there,

I am sorry that it has taken so long for you to receive a response. I hope that you are okay.

Self harm is such a tricky thing to overcome because even when things are not going terribly bad in life we can still have urges to harm ourselves. In essence it becomes an addiction. You can overcome it, yes, it will be a lot of work but it will be worth it in the end because you will gain back control of your life.

Do you journal? If not I think that is a great thing to pick up when trying to overcome self harm because it can help you to identify triggers. Everyday triggers are important things to figure out because it is everyday triggers that can build up and lead to us wanting to self harm; however if a person can identify the trigger they can work on figuring out ways to cope with those triggers in a healthy way.

I would also suggest that you look into getting into counseling to help you work on the sadness you are feeling and work on finding some healthy coping skills. I know counseling might not be something you have ever considered before but it has been beneficial to me and I recommend it to most people.

Lastly,I am going to give you a list of alternatives to self harm and I hope you will look over them and whenever you have an urge try using some of the things suggested on the list. Here is the link: http://www.teenhelp.org/forums/f12-s...ves-self-harm/

I hope this helped and if you need anything please feel free to pm me.

My blog is open to all, those whom are easily triggered avoid, it's a story about a girl and her life and how far she has come over the years. If you read it, I hope it inspires you to keep fighting and to NEVER give up!

When you can no longer think of a reason to continue, you must think of a reason to start over.
