Telling the truth - March 4th 2011, 12:42 AM

I got myself into this mess and now i need a way out...... i was really depressed and going through a lot of crap and cut my arm. A lot. Well.... my dad saw the cuts and i said i ran into a thorn bush. He said the cuts didnt look that way. I said yes i just didnt tell you because i was out late at night walking around and i knew i would get in trouble if i told you.

So now my dad thinks i was out walking around with my boyfriend at night...

I need to tell him the truth but i dont know how...... i lied so much already..... how do i bring it up?

Try just going up to him and ask if you two can talk about somehing then just spill it. Just say dad about that whole thornbush thing...I lied. I did this to myself but I was scared to tell you. Tell the truth. Goodluck

Do you think maybe therapy could help?

Heya,

That's fair enough about the therapy. I guess what you need to work out is what means more to you. Would you rather your Dad thinking you're out with your boyfriend in the night or would you rather admit you still self harm? Not always an easy question to answer but that's basically what it comes down to. Sorry you're in this situation :/ It's never a nice place to be having to lie about self harm.

With regards to bringing it up, could you perhaps write it down and hand it to him in a letter? May be easier than actually coming out with the words.

Okay counseling isn't for everyone. That's okay. Why'd you do it though, if I can ask

If it were me, I would simply be like. Dad I wasn't completely honest with you the other night, and I would like to talk to you about it. If he brings up therapy just truthful tell him you don't think it is helping you and isn't the right method to go about fixing your problem. Maybe come up with something you both think would help your situation?
Good luck !


Don't ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.

Well hon the guy's a jerk. I'm really sorry. It's understandable that you're stressed out. But (and understand this question is coming from a cutter) does it really help to hurt yourself?
