Talking Proud of myself!! :-D - October 18th 2013, 10:01 PM

I self harm and now and then I get HUGE urges to cut myself and quite often I give into it. Earlier I felt an overwhelming urge to do it, but I forced myself not to, spoke to some friends and looked for help on this website and eventually I got past the urge! It's just a small achievement but I feel REALLY proud of myself!!

Hey, welcome to TeenHelp, and congratulations!

You're absolutely right to feel proud of yourself - it's a fantastic achievement in what can hopefully become one of many steps on a journey to stopping Self Harm.

Really well done.

Hey there,

I think when it comes to overcoming self harm it is all about the small achievements. I know I have been trying to get to 6 months self harm free and I don't count the big achievements as much as I count the small achievements. The days that I resist a really big urge are the days that matter the most, you know? So, I think you should be really proud of yourself for being able to resist the urge that is an amazing accomplishment. Also, in the future if you are struggling with an urge I suggest that you look over the alternatives to self harm: http://www.teenhelp.org/forums/f12-s...ves-self-harm/

Best of luck and if you need anyone to talk to feel free to message me.

Congratulations! Resisting urges like that are so rewarding! If you can, try setting yourself little goals. Go a day without self harm, then 2, then 3, then maybe a week. Each time you pass your goal, reward yourself because you deserve a reward for reaching your goal.


Life is for living, not for losing.
