i hate my life! - January 19th 2010, 03:28 AM

so yesterday I started cutting again and then I cut again today. I thought I was getting under control, but I guess not. I just wish I could stop cutting. I've tried hiding my razor again, but I don't know if it will help at all. I hope it does. At this point I'm desperate to stop, but in reality I probably won't. I'm getting help from some of my friends, and I'm really thinking about talking to my youth leader or church pastor about this.

Last day I cut: 7-13-2010

I believe in everyone that I help that they will get over whatever they are struggling with.

I regret nothing in my past. My past made me who I am today.

It's great that you're at least trying to stop though. It was brave of you to reach out for help; that's something that a lot of people don't have the courage to do. If you think that talking to your youth leader or church pastor would help you, then you should definitely do that. Best of luck with whatever you decide to do. :]

First things first, grab all the sharp objects in your room and dispose of them somehow so you will never be tempted by them, so you won't have to look at them or feel the urge to cut.
Try not to concentrate on the bad things in your life, try to concentrate on the good and the people who care about you, and don't tell me there isn't anything good because there is always something good. For example, you have a whole awesome supportive forum here who care about you, who are willing to help you and listen to your problems anytime!
I'm around if you need someone to vent out to or talk to, I kicked the habit of cutting, I know how it feels and I've been through alot of depression and in the phase where I hated life. It took a near death experience for me to realize what my life was worth. It also made me realize, when I was hurting, being in more pain such as wounds on my body or inflicting more pain on myself wasn't ever going to help me feel better, it wouldn't solve anything, it wouldn't ever help and so I got myself in a mindset where I kept reminding myself of that and telling myself it wasn't ever going to help me feel better so it was pointless, to the point where I put myself in a complete mindset I never cut again!
