Question What are ways to not self-harm? - May 27th 2013, 01:22 AM

Like what are ways you distract yourself/keep yourself from self-harming?
I'm making something for my friend and i could use some suggestions on how to distract yourself, and not self-harm. I'm not very good at distracting myself, which is why I need answers ha.

Actually, we have a great list of alternatives to self harm! That list is located here.

For me personally, I like things that allow a person to express themselves, like writing or using art, or even exercising to release stress. They can call up or hang out with a friend or family member, watch a movie or TV show, do homework, read a book, clean/reorganize their room, cook...

Or a lot more.

I do word searches they help a lot to keep me distracted.

Sometimes you need to run away just to see who will follow you.

Tired of living and scared of dying.

I suggest checking out the list that Dez posted up there. It has a great list of helpful techniques. Somethings I do, is listen to music, take a walk, watch my favorite tv show, post around here, write poems, cuddle with pets etc.
