new coping alternative - June 25th 2017, 12:46 PM

My new thing that isn't entirely new of course but my old thing rebranded as a self harm alternative is.....
*drum roll*

Watching cat videos

There's cats jumping in slow motion such as this one
And this one
And there's lots more of catd doing funny and cute things.

Also you can post a video here that helps you cope instead of self harm even if it just helped you prolong being free from self harm behaviors.
Even if it isn't of cats that's okay but you'll have to pay me in e-cookies if they're not of cats.

Also if they're of cats getting hurt don't post them and make sure they'really not of cats getting hurt because sadly there's those kinds of videos too and they will be titled as "funny" or "hilarious but they really are not

That's an awesome alternative! I do the same with puppies but maybe I'll start with cats too.


Let it come and let it be...

That's an awesome alternative! I usually listen to a good pumping up playlist or just a playlist I like. That helps me. The songs I usually listen to are:
There's nothing holding me back- Shawn Mendes
Despacito- JB, Daddy Yankee, someone else
The Cure- Lady Gaga
Cold Blooded- Khalid
Young, Dumb, Broke,- Khalid
Kiss me thru the phone- Soulja boy (lol just for funsies)
Just Say- Extreme Music
Shape of you- Ed Sheeran
Castle on the hill- Ed Sheeran
Maybe I'll try some of these cat vids.




Life's a tough b**ch, but you are tougher. Go show it who's boss. <lots of love and hugs>

I love that alternative.

This one day, I watched cat videos as an alternative for three hours because I kept clicking on the suggested videos. Thanks for sharing this with us!
