This thread has been labeled as triggering, particularly on the subject of self harm, by the original poster or by a Moderator. The contents of this thread might therefore not be suitable for certain sensitive users. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

I just can't stop. The blade doesn't do it anymore. I've cut across my wrists 3 times so far, down the sides over 10, on my stomach 10. Just not enough. Not enough. Not enough.

And I can't stop. There will be more. I need help, badly. Need help.

Hey there.

I really wish I could change things for you. I wish I could make you feel better and take away the pain you're feeling. You honestly don't deserve to be going through this and feeling this way.

You are worth so much more than self harm. You're clearly hurting enough, you don't need more pain. You don't deserve to be hurt. I know things are really hard right now but you and I both now that you hurting yourself is only going to help temporarily. Afterwards and later on you're still going to feel the same and you'll be back in the same position and wanting to hurt yourself. It's not going to help the situation you're in. It might in fact make it worse.

I really really want to encourage you to try and use distractions when you do have the urges or feel triggered. I know sometimes when we do have them we don't even want to think about using them because we want to self harm but sometimes you just have to force yourself. It won't be easy but hopefully once you start doing a distraction the hard part will be over and it will actually distract you and become easier. Here is the link to the list of alternatives ... http://www.teenhelp.org/forums/f12-s...ves-self-harm/. Please try and take a look and use them when you're feeling low and have urges.

Have you tried talking to anyone about how you are feeling? I know talking to people and letting them in is really hard and its a big deal, but thats okay. Sometimes we have to push ourselves out of our comfort zones. And its not easy but it can be well worth it. People love an care about you an awful lot and I am sure they want to help but they can only do so if you let them in so they are aware that you're not feeling well and need help.

I know things are hard but you can do this. You are a strong person and things can and will get better. Don't give up, try distractions and let people in to help you. You are worth so much.

I hope you are okay. I'm here if you need anyone.

Life is too

Short to spend

It at war with


Iím catching stars in the sky because I am fixing the soul within me. May it be from the heart a girl broke years ago or my soul simply repairing itself as it was shattered on my walk on this earth. May the stardust fill those cracks within my soul making me brand new, but never forgetting who I once was.
