Hey there Really sorry to hear you gave in last night, but please try not to beat yourself up about it. These things happen and 13 months is fantastic! Just keep going, you have proved you can manage without harming, so take control and show cutting who's boss! We all know it's not easy, but it can be done and Teenhelp has faith in you. Just keep resisting the urges and remember what helped you reach 13 months, that is a huge achievement, well done! x

Hi there.

I want to start by saying to you, how amazing I think it is that you went a whole thirteen months with out self harming. I know that at times that must have been incredibly difficult for you but you managed it! You should be really proud of yourself for making such a huge achievement.

The truth is, everyone in recovery has a slip up at some point. It doesn't make us failures or means that we are weak. Its very common and quite normal. Instead of viewing your slip up as a negative, try and see it as a positive, that you can start rebuilding the time you have been self harm free and aim for higher. Don't feel bad about it, its okay you slipped up. But now its time to use it to focus on being self harm free again. And you can do that, you can still be self harm free.

Do you know what triggered you last night? If there is something and you'd like to talk to us about it, you're more than welcome to. You're never alone in this and we'll support you as best as we possibly can do :-)

Keep your head up,
Jessie
