Told my friends - March 4th 2018, 05:02 AM

I told my friends today that I was self harming.

They were really, really supportive, and I feel better after telling them.

Just figured I'd share the good news and maybe encourage other people to think about doing the same; it's really scary to talk about at first, I can't deny that. It's a good step to think about taking if you're able to though, and usually people will be supportive and loving and be there for you.

wishing everyone well

This is lovely to hear! I agree that it can be difficult to reach out for help but it is so worth it. Thinking of you.

I'm happy to hear that you were able to tell your friends and that they were supportive!

I agree, that is the biggest, scariest first step. Hopefully they are able to provide support.

For love, love alone will conquer all
