Getting really strong urges - December 25th 2013, 10:07 PM

So, usually the other safe alternatives would work. But, they don't really help at all anymore. I have been getting these really strong urges lately,& the only reason I didn't act on them is because I didn't have anything to use.

I've really been having a rough time with everything. I have been feeling really depressed,& worthless.

Hey there,

I'm so sorry you're feeling this way, especially in the light of the holiday season.
Just so you know, to me, you're not worthless. You have an incredible amount of value to this world, and you make it special. Your friends, parents, siblings, teachers, and others including myself and other members here at TH care about you, and want to see you doing well. Keep in mind that these rough times don't last forever, okay? <3

As for the alternatives, something that works well for me is journaling. Whenever I'm feeling down about anything, I write it in my journal, and later, when I'm feeling calmer, I go back and read it. Look for any patterns that may occur, and try to avoid those certain situations or emotions that you noticed.

Something else I do when I feel like cutting is recording my voice. I get out my phone and just talk to it, say everything I want to say, and then listen to it. It calms me down, and usually when I listen to it I can come up with ways to solve my problems and control my emotions.

In the meantime, keep trying things on the alternatives list, hopefully something on the list or something I suggested will be helpful to you.

And if all else fails, you can always PM me. I'm here to listen! Or you can chat with others in the chat room.

Remember, these feelings won't last forever.
You are not alone.
I hope I've helped you in some way.
Happy holidays!


I love you to the moon and back.

Darling you are the only exception. ~Paramore ♡
