Damn it - March 13th 2011, 03:20 PM

Why does the one thing that helps me have to be "wrong"?! Why does it have to be something I've gotta be ashamed of? Damn it I just wanna make things better. What's so wrong with that?! It's my body! Why isn't it ok for me to do whatever the hell I want with myself?

I deal with this too. Overall I think that yes it is ur body but still it is a gift from god. That's why it matters cause people don't like seeing other people hurt what they were given. Idk.... Meh. feel better.

Just rise above this
Kill them with your kindness
Ignorance is blindness
They're the ones that stand to lose

'Cause they don't even know you
All they see is SCARS
They don't see the ANGEL

I know how you are feeling and it is horrible, and Sora said, our body is a gift from god, ours to keep, cherish and to protect so damaging it isn't a good thing to do. Also, it leaves scars that will always be there, so just think about that next time and maybe it will help you to resist the urges. Try alternatives as there are other things that can help you, such as maybe talking to someone close to you, or distracting yourself with something - such as music.

We have many things in life which we can call guilty pleasures. Cutting is one that you have to deal with. I know that you are going to overcome this. I'm so sorry you are feeling wrecked. If you need to use distractions, use them. If you need to talk about it, don't be afraid to. It's going to be fine.
