Unhappy thought i could but i cant - April 26th 2015, 04:20 AM

This thread has been labeled as triggering, particularly on the subject of self harm, by the original poster or by a Moderator. The contents of this thread might therefore not be suitable for certain sensitive users. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

Well I got in a situation that I tout would make me better but instead I got me to a point that I don't want to kill my self but I'm cutting really bad again

Would you be able to elaborate at all on what that situation is? I think that it may help me give you a bit more help. But it is really great that you are at a point where you don't want to kill yourself! What are your triggers for the self harm, if you know?

I agree with Dez a little more information would be helpful so i can help better. But if you don't want to give it that's fine. Anyways have you checked out the alternative thread to self-harm? Here is the link to that page there can be a lot of helpful distractions on that list. So I would take advantage of it and try some of them.


Don't lose who you are, in the blur of the stars
Seeing is deceiving, dreaming is believing,
It's okay not to be okay
Sometimes it's hard, to follow your heart
Tears don't mean you're losing, everybody's bruising,
Just be true to who you are

Well my gf of 5 years left me over a week ago and yesterday she came over and we talked and sort of worked things out so we made plans today wen she got off work for her to come back over because she left some things here so but she seems to rather hang with this guy that I feel is becoming a problem so basically that's the short story I don't really have much of a trigger more just when I'm depress but not wanting to kill myself I become a little self destructive

I honestly don't know how to help with the girl thing. All I can really say is it sounds like your better off without her if she doesn't want to hang out with you and prefers someone else. Also take a look at that alternatives thread I linked in my last post

I think you and your ex girlfriend can benefit from some time apart to think things through. By what you've written, it sounds like you may be better off without her if she preferred to stay with someone else after already making plans with you. Something amazing about all of this is that we have a lot of power, often more than we seem to realize. Things only come back to bite you if you think of it in that way. Instead of thinking about your relationship with your ex girlfriend in that way, try to think of it as an opportunity to branch out and take more time for yourself or think of it as dodging a bullet since she didn't keep up with your plans. Try to turn your negative thoughts into positive ones; that can do a lot to help improve your mood.
