Reasons not to self harm. - January 14th 2009, 04:55 PM

  • I donít want scars
  • It hurts other people
  • It makes me feel guilty and a failure
  • It is not natural to hurt yourself deliberately
  • It doesnít solve anything
  • It adds to your problems
  • It is damaging
  • I am strong enough not to do it
  • Once I am over it I can help others with better empathy
  • It has run its course and Iím not going back now
  • Cutting triggers memories of other bad times when I have cut
  • I have better things to do with my time (e.g. eat chocolate)
  • My fight will give strength to others who are struggling
  • It doesnít serve a purpose anymore
  • I donít like the awkward questions
  • It makes me hate myself
  • I donít deserve to be hurt
  • I can give myself rewards for not cutting
  • I donít want all my memories of my teenage years to be about cutting
  • I donít like the feeling the next morning when you remember what youíve done
  • Because it hurts!
  • I must tackle the problem rather than avoid it
  • I donít like having to wear long sleeves
  • The feelings that ďI want to cutĒ are short urges that pass
  • I am a beautiful person inside and out
  • Self harm doesnít heal the pain it only delays it
  • I am hurting enough as it is
  • I do not deserve to feel guilty any longer
  • My life is worth everything
  • Think of how long I have gone without cutting
  • Every minute I donít cut I am succeeding
  • It is messy!
  • I am worth more than that
  • I hate having to break the news to people that I have cut and seeing peopleís disappointment
  • I am strong. I can and will get through this
  • Self harm is the same as any other addiction - the longer I go the easier it will get
  • If I can get through this I can get through anything
  • What Iím going through is horrible but itís only a short period of my life
  • It is not a weakness to ask for help
  • Gradually I will learn to recognise my triggers and understand myself better
  • Youíd never want your friends to cut so stop being a hypocrite!
NOT MY WORK!
Clicky.

Feel free to add more reasons.

When people see the cuts and ask what happened, running out of excuses can suck.

because everyone deserves to love themself and not feel the need to use self mutilation as a coping mechanism. this world afterall, is full of beautiful things and beautiful people. :]

- because it stops you doing the things you love (such as swimming in my case)
- because in the words of TWLOHA we ARE the hopeful, and well cutting doesn't show that

But it's an excellent way to make yourself feel better when you can't get your hands on drugs. Your body releases endorphines naturally. And why are we talking about being embarrased about showing scars when this forum is about feeling good about one's self?

- You'll run out of excuses sooner or later.
- It isn't pretty or attractive.
- You don't want to have to hide them away.
- It isn't the answer, it's a problem within itself.
- It doesn't help, it's all in your mind.
- You don't deserve to cause yourself any (or more) pain
- You'll regret it. Whether it be now or later.
- You'll feel better knowing that you stopped yourself then knowing you gave in.

Well,whether it becomes a sticky or not its got me thinking.
My reasons for not self harming are...
~I don't want to hurt Alan.
~I'm proving myself wrong,i said on the 4th of December that i couldn't go 1 day without self harm.I've gone a lot longer than one day.
~I'm better than this.
But most importantly,I'm doing this because i CAN do this

1. The longer you go without self harming, the better you will feel about yourself, and the better you feel, the less you may need to self harm and so on.

2. You can put your mind to other things instead of constantly thinking about your addiction to self harm.

3. You will no longer have to worry about the harsh judgement of others regarding your self harm, and the feelings that go along with being judged.

4. You will be a stronger person because of stopping, letting go of an addiction is an extremely difficult thing to do and is something to be proud of.

5. It will teach you to look at things in a different way when it comes to coping with problems.

6. Many people take up a new hobby of some sort to keep their mind distracted, so you will be SI free and have a new hobby!

7. You will no longer feel the need to hide from others, keep secrets and push people away.

8. You will no longer feel guilty for not sharing your secret with your closest friends and family, especially when they share their secrets with you.

9. You will know that you have stopped for yourself and not to please other people.

10. You can then use your experiences to help others.

11. Stopping SI means you are then free to deal with the reasons/issues behind your SI in the first place.

12. Friends and family will no longer be checking up on you and asking to see your arms etc.

13. Your cuts and wounds will heal and your scars will fade, giving you more confidence about your body.

If we sticky this, then we will have to sticky a million other things like this. Trust me, threads like this come and go often. You'll see another one before you know it.

I think those are good reasons. One of my personal reasons right now is because I'm tired of having to explain why my arm looks the way it does. I'm also tired of having to hide cuts or scars. I'm sick of being bold and wearing tshirts, with cuts being shown and people asking. It makes me feel bad that I'm so openly showing off cuts and things, but I'm sick of hiding everything.

-Because of the look in your friends eyes when they see your cuts
-Sharing the excitement with your friends when you meet your goal of days free
-The look in your managers eyes when they see your clean arms
-Wearing tank tops and Capri's again
-Not worrying about someone finding out

~Talking to people isn't as scary
~You'll stop feeling so alone and scared all the time
~You can finally start looking at people without overly-scanning their body with your eyes
~You can stop feeling disappointed and re-reach your natural high
~I LOVE YOU


I either feel like no one cares, and that I should be breaking things, and that everything is falling apart, or that everything is great, and I can do anything, and I really do have friends.

I'm stuck halfway in between.

because you're hurting the people you love when you SH.
because you waste so much money on medical supplies
because one day your kids are gonna ask what those scars are from
because doctors visits are always shaming

And I agree with not sticky-ing because this forum has so many stickies already

Because breaking the skin can never heal the heart.
Because the time I spend in secret with a blade could be time spent in the open fixing my problems.
Because even though scars are a good reminder of pain I've overcome, not having any scars is a better reminder.

1. Cause I know i'm stronger then the urges to cut.
2. If I want Him back in my life I cant cut.
3. I have friends who care about me, and I hurt them when I cut.
4. I dont want to have to hide cuts and scars from people any more.

~No more scars(but I know some people actally like the scars)
~No more threats from friends that if you cut again im out of your life
~No more explaining how that fresh cut got there
~You arent as secretive anymore

There are only so many long sleeve shirts you own
You should be able to wear your favorite plaid shorts
You should be able to swim in the summer in Florida without wearing shorts in the water
You don't have to think about if someone finds out and how to explain it to them.

Because I love how excited my therapist gets when I tell her it's been X amount of days since I last cut. And she gives me candy =]

Because I want to wear a sleeveless dress to prom.

Because I've recently caught my 11-year-old cousin glancing at my scars, and I want to be a better example than that.

Because I have to roll up my sleeves a lot while working in theatre.

Because body butter is expensive.

Because it's against the rules to bring pocket knives to school, anyway.

Because I hate jumping away from people when they touch me, and seeing hurt in their eyes...and because Scott is afraid to hug me, now, because he's grazed fresh cuts and heard me whimper way too many times.

Because I'll give better advice when I've already quit, and can say "I've been there".

but I'm gonna try
to get better and overcome each moment
in my own way"

Re: Reasons not to self harm. - January 20th 2009, 06:14 AM

i dont know if this will help anyone but my idea of this is if someone you know feels like self harming (did it with my ex) i used to say punch or cut me rather than doing it to yourself.

this way they realise that they arent hurting themselves but also other people with this action and after that my ex stopped becuase she couldnt watch me go through the pain she was causing me

hope that helps (not condoning cutting or anything but it gives the person a clearer idea of what they are doing to the people they care about)

My reasons not to cut.
1. I want to feel skin, not scars.
2. . It makes me feel good knowing I am almost five months free!
3. I love the attention I’m getting for not cutting so much better.
4. I don’t like wearing long sleeves all year; I want to show my beautiful figure!
5. Just because I’m blind and I can’t see the scars, doesn’t mean that other people can’t.
6. I like to be in control, instead of having something controlling me.

Marie, this is priceless!
I have better things to do with my time e.g. eat chocolate!

Jessi, I love yours too!

Don't listen to what people say.
They don't know the real you, anyways.
