For Those That Can't Stop Harming Themselves - October 2nd 2013, 04:15 AM

Just recently, I came across this specific website that fully explains cutting and self-harm. It also talks about different ways in which you can prevent yourself from cutting and self-harming any longer. Here's the link: http://www.helpguide.org/mental/self_injury.htm

I hope that this will help any of you that are struggling with cutting and self-harm, and finding it hard to stop doing so. Just thought I'd pass this along to anyone who may need it.

Thanks for sharing, and we also have the Alternative sticky located at the top of the Self-Harm forum that has a lot of useful tips on how to refrain from SH'ing.

Hi,

I glanced at this rather quickly. It does seem like a great resource though. Thanks for sharing!

You're welcome. Indeed I can, and it would even make it more worth the help if all of you could show this website to someone that you know is having this problem. It would really mean a lot to that person; it even can mean saving that person too.

I've read through that site before and it's definitely a great one. Anyone who self-harms should have a look at it! I'm glad you thought to share it.

Out of the ashes I'm burning like a fire. You can save your apologies, you're nothing but a liar. I've got shame, I've got scars that I will never show. I'm a survivor in more ways than you know. 'Cause all the pain and the truth, I wear like a battle wound. So ashamed, so confused, I was broken and bruised. Now I'm a warrior.

This is very helpful, for someone who self harms or a friend or family member of someone who SH's. Thanks for sharing!





From day one I talked about getting out
But not forgetting about
How all my worst fears are letting out
He said, "Why put a new address on the same old loneliness?"
When breathing just passes the time
Until we all just get old and die
