Stop me - October 8th 2009, 06:12 AM

So I'm bipolar. Except for 2 weeks ago, I've been cut free for almost 2 years. I've had a bad week, and it's been getting harder to resist. Talk me out of it.

The last thing you want to do is break your streak. Look at how well you've been doing! You're strong and you got this. Obviously if you've gone that long without it (and no doubt you've gone through some tough weeks through that time) you're strong enough to make it through this week. Everybody has rough weeks and it may seem like yours fails so badly right now but we're all here for you. We all believe in you and we don't want you to hurt yourself.

If you've been cut free for that long, you don't really want to hurt yourself, you just want to relieve some of the stress this bad week has put on you.

Some ways to relieve the whole "wanting to self harm" thing are:
Go for a walk.
Take a shower.
Read, write, do something that relaxes you.
Take a nap.
Invite a friend over.
Talk to somebody. (You can PM me anytime.)
Keep yourself busy.

You have to do this, not for anybody else but for you. For yourself. You can make it through this. (:

You are so powerful and you don't even know it! Of course we will all talk you out of self-harming in the best ways that we can, but I believe that you are strong enough to do it on your own also. Don't underestimate yourself.

I truly believe if you hurt yourself now you will come to regret it hours, if not seconds later. If something has motivated you to stay off of self-harm (scars, people asking about it, etc.) hold on to it. The more you self-harm, the farther down you're going to fall; you need to STOP so you can climb back up and regain self-esteem.

I believe self-injury is the sneakiest self-esteem stealer there is. It tricks you into it with empty promises and leaves you with regret, sadness, fear, and isolation. No good comes out of self-harm that lasts. You may relieve the urge, but at what cost? For another four months of depression?

Please, take care of yourself. You deserve it. Distract yourself with friends or people who care about you. Talk to anybody on teen help, or do something you love to do. Hold on.
