Ive not cut for nearly a month, maybe two. idk.

but everything has fallen apart for me. mostly my own fault...which makes me hate myself, which triggers me to want to cut.

You should be proud of yourself for managing to avoid self-harming for almost two months or so. What happened exactly that has made you feel these urges once again? Does anybody know about the way you're currently feeling or the fact that you used to self-harm? It would be a wise idea to talk to somebody close to you about what's going on. You don't even have to ask them for advice or anything. Just talking to them and getting your feelings out in the open may make the world of a difference.

By telling somebody about your urges, especially someone who is around you often or lives with you, it'll help you avoid self-harming. They could be there for you when you feel the way you do. If you feel the urges, you can go and find them which will allow you to take your mind off of the urges and completely avoid self-harming again. You have come such a long way and you do not want to give into that habit again.

Try to preoccupy your mind with other things. Telling somebody about what's going on is a good idea because not only will it allow you to get your mind off of self-harming but it will also help you get the help that you need to cope with this effectively. If you're not completely ready to tell someone about this yet, try to do something that you like to do. Get involved with a sport or another hobby of yours. I would strongly suggest telling an adult about your urges and whatnot but I can't force you. Ultimately you know what's best for you.

I lost the love of my life two weeks ago to another girl. WE were together 7 months.

And I lost a very good friend of mine because I was a stupid jealous person...

I'm so sick of losing everyone I know. I failed. I cut.
I'm so freaking worthless

I am really sorry to hear about this. You are definitely not worthless; in fact you are worth so much. Your boyfriend obviously wasn't worth it if he cheated on you for another girl. You deserve so much better than that and although it must hurt so much right now hopefully in time you will realise that you do deserve better.

You say you lost a good friend, could you not try to sort things out? If they were a good friend I would think that they would want to sort things out.

Try not to be too hard on yourself. You have not failed, you have slipped up and slips ups are part of recovery. You can't change the fact you slipped up so what really matters is how you move on now. You can try to pick yourself back up again and realise that it was only a slip up. You have already shown you can stop self harming by not doing it for a month or two. You can do that again. I am here if you need anything at all
