Really sad and want to cut - December 28th 2010, 12:01 AM

I'm really really sad and I'm on the verge of tears, but they never come. I already cut 3 times today. I don't know what else to do but I'd feel like such a faliure cutting 4 times in a day. I don't want all the scars and I don't mean to disappoint my friends but I don't know what to do.

Why are you so sad?


I try my best to help, but that doesn't always mean I will be helpful.

You're not wasting my time. If it will make you feel better to list them, then go for it. Up to you.
I wish I could give you a big hug right now.
Please don't cut yourself. Find something to make yourself busy.

They're unfixable so listing them won't do anything. I'm sposta be going to a party in an hour but I think I'm gonna skip. I'd rather cut at home then in a random guys' house

I'm so ugly and I keep losing weight but I look fatter every day and my family thinks I have an eating disorder and I'm a slut and I'm failing chemistry and I'm never gonna get into juliard or get my ex boyfriend to love me again and while my whole family gets to be all religious together I'm an atheist so they all feel bad about me

Ouch.
I'm sure you're not ugly. Everyone is beautiful in some way.
You know what? I bet if your family said you were absolutely beautiful, you wouldn't believe them right?
So, why do you believe them when they say bad things about you?
Try to cheer up and look on the bright side of things. There's gotta be some.
Even though you might consider yourself a failure, you gotta keep pushing. Keep doing your best. You aren't a failure! No one is!
Life always throws us a huge bump in the road. Only to make us stronger, and prepare us for the next bump in the road.
Keep your head up, and try your best. Never give up, even when it seems like the whole world is against you. You're not alone. Trust me. It will get easier. Even if it's not today, or tomorrow.

Who cares about being ugly (or your opinion of ugly, and a majority of society's)? Does Bill Gates look like Fabio used to? No.
Do more people know and respect Bill Gates than Fabio? Yes.

Looks don't matter. Check!

Family, well. Family doesn't matter for a lot of people once you distance yourself from them. Are you still living with the family? How long until you're out? Once you're out, there's a lot less stress from them and you can be surrounded by people who understand you.

Family doesn't really matter too much. Check! (They matter, but yeah.)

Definition of a Slut: Promiscuous. This is one thing you can fix. I'm not sure how, (Sorry, virgin been with one guy, 13, someone else come over here and help me with this?)

Being a slut can be fixed. Check!

You want to get into Julliard? It's an art school, screw Chemistry! And maybe you can try a little harder and/or ask a teacher for help to get your grade up?

Chemistry doesn't have anything to do with life and it can be fixed. Check!

Darling, he's not good enough for you. :]

So unorganized, but hope I helped a bit.


I hope you're having a spectacular day!

There is no problem that is unfixable. You are in control, you just need to find that control. Self harm is never the answer, it only leads to more and more pain. Why do you think your ugly? There is no such thing as ugly, fat, skinny, old, young, small, tall, short, only different.

Your different, so am I, and everyone on this forum, and the entire world. No one is the same, in any way.

Thanks guys =/
But there is a such thing as ugly. A such thing as faliure. A such thng as hopeless.
I adore my family and I hate that I disappoint them.
Chemistry is useless but I really just wanna be smart so that everyone stops thinking I'm a dumb blonde.
I want to make someone happy. I want to be enough for just one person.

Hi Blair,
I am Wiccan and no one else in my family so I don't have the same beliefs as them. I sometimes do go to their religious get togethers though to learn more about other religions, I just like to learn about all the different religions, but it also gives me more time to spend with my family. It's really early and my mind is still sleepy so I'm not sure if this is helpful or if it even makes sense, but I hope it does. As with the Chemistry, you can always ask your teacher for help and extra credit, also ask them if they can help set you up with a tutor or study buddy. If your ex can't see how wonderful you are then you shouldn't be with him, you should be with someone who loves you unconditionally.

Smile, you are beautiful www.operationbeautiful.com

Does your whole family think you're gonna go to hell and pray for you and cry about it all the time? Mine does.

To tell you the truth yes, some of them do, but I just try to ignore it or not bring up religion around them, but I realize it may not be that easy for you.

Reading this whole list reminds me of how I was when I started.
Actually, everything you listed sounds so familiar. Getting through it is something that happens over time. I always wished it would all go away overnight, but slowly, I found peace within myself. And yes, I failed chemistry too.
Sometimes you have to pick out that one thing that you like about yourself the most. Pick it, and love it. If you have a moment where you don't like the way you look, tell yourself how beautiful that one thing is. For example, for me, I've grown to love my eyes. So when I have a moment where I feel ugly or disgusting, I say to myself, "At least I have beautiful eyes." After a while, it slowly builds up to liking more about yourself.
