Drew; Becca,
I know you're hurting so bad but don't do this to yourselves. You need to understand that we're here for you and we're here if you need anything at all. Life is really hard. And things that happen can totally make you wish you weren't you and wish you weren't alive. But there's always a reason something happens. Take hope in the fact that you can conquer anything if you set your mind to it. You can hurt only if you let yourself hurt. Be strong.

Think of all the people who are going to be upset if you hurt yourself. What about them? The people who care about you. If you know how it feels to get hurt, the agony of it, then, shouldn't you be the ones to prevent anyone else from feeling pain too, from losing you? If you can't think of anyone, you think, who cares, let me speak for all of TH and tell you that we do care. Every person is important, and so beautiful in their own way. Find your inner strength and throw away anything that you can use to hurt yourselves. You don't want to do this. I know the urge is strong, but that's exactly what we're here for. To help you cope, and rise above. Have faith in yourself and be strong.

Don't let anything defeat you. Overcome every obstacle with every ounce of strength, and we'll all support you. In life, we fall. But we just have to pick ourselves up again and get on with it, learning from our mistakes and dealing with things. It is how we overcome and rise above that defines who we are. You are who you want to be. Don't let anyone hurt you, because no one can hurt you without your consent. You are strong, you are amazing, beautiful people, and don't let anyone tell you otherwise. Find hope, search deep inside yourselves. Have faith, stay strong, and you'll be fine!

If you need to talk, pm/vm me anytime! Please don't do anything drastic, however strong an urge you may feel
Take care of yourselves <3

P.S.: Here's a thread that you'll hopefully find helpful:

Don't give up. Don't let the blades win. You can do this. You don't have to touch that blade. You don't have to harm yourself anymore. We are going to be here to help you. Don't be afraid to talk about it. Cutting isn't the answer. There are lots of ways to quit. Be open to try them all. I know it is tough. This is coming from someone who was a heavy cutter for years, but I want to get you through this. Even though your mind is telling you that it is the right thing to cut, and cutting is the solution, it isn't. Cutting is the wrong way. You are never going to give up to cutting ever again. You will never lose to the blade. We are going to be here to help you. Find yourself a distraction, and a motivation for yourself. Write things down. Of course, talk about it. If anything is on your mind, don't be afraid to let us know.

That isn't true. There are lots of people who care about you. Your family. Everyone here. I wish I could just give you a hug. We love you. The blade doesn't love you. Don't listen to the blades. Just put them down. Don't ever pick them up again. I know it's tough. But you are going to get through this. Let's talk about it. We are always open to what you have to say. Don't be afraid.

Hey, i know you are hurting a lot and I'm sorry things are rough for you at the moment- but you can do this, you are strong and i believe in you. Keep trying, everyone slips up, so don't be too hard on yourself, just keep trying and learn from this. Feel free to PM me if you ever want to talk, stay strong and take care. :-)

Hey, woah, hun. There are always good things about people. You only need to want to see it sweetheart! That's the trick.

Don't say such things. You are as strong as you want to be. C'mon, you can get through this, you don't have to be ruled by pain and those blades you see.

Throw 'em all out, and you won't be tempted. Don't give yourself a reason to do this to yourself!!

If you need to talk, I'm always around. pm/vm me anytime, and I'll try to reply asap! <3

No you don't. You don't deserve pain. You deserve love. Don't listen to the blades. Let's talk about this. Be honest with us. What is ticking you. We love you. We don't want you to hurt yourself. What is on your mind? Why do you feel the need to hurt, and bleed yourself. We don't want you to harm yourself. Don't be afraid to talk to us.

Drew,
You don't deserve to bleed, not at all. Like Jesse said, you need love. And sweetie, hurting and cutting yourself isn't going to solve anything. Not at all. You know, you can always talk about about what you're feeling and why you're so upset, and we can help you figure a way out to make it better, or push the problem away. Don't give up. We're here for you!

For real.
So you really shouldn't do this to yourself. Not at all.

Hey Drew.

I'm sorry to hear you're feeling like this. We all want to help you, but we can't do that unless you give us a little bit more information. What makes you think you're a terrible person? Why don't you feel like anyone loves you?

And lastly, have you considered talking to someone in your family about this? They may be able to help.

Good luck.

idk..it started in 2007...i have a painful past..and i blame myself for it...

i just dont think people would really care if something happened to me...

everyone i care about leaves me ....because they get sick of me ..or in the worst case sceniaro..someone dies

and im left all alone...

i dont think i could ever tell my family that i do it...i mean...what would they think of me..they would think that i do this for attention..or i got this idea from someone else...etc
