I was just intrigued as to where you actually self harm?
I usually go for my left arm but have done it on my leg or stomach, What about you? xx

Razors pain you,
Rivers are damp,
Acids stain you
And drugs cause cramp,
Guns aren't lawful,
Nooses give,
Gas smells awful,
You might as well live.

I do it on my right wrist

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
Living in your heart

At the moment, I only cut my lower legs. During the winter months I'll cut more on my arms as I can get away with wearing long sleeves to work those months. I've also cut my thighs, chest, and stomach. And I used to cut on my hands/fingers all the time.

Even the darkest night will end, and the sun will rise.

I haven't in a few years, but when I did, it was mostly on my outer thighs, upper left arm, lower right arm, both wrists, lower right leg, hips, ankles, ribs, fingers, scalp, and even on my face. You run out of room after a while, you know?

and if you should hear the cries and calls
through the thinnest of the walls
don't you get yourself so blue
it's just the sound of me getting over you

On my left arm, I need my right to cut, and I think I've done my legs and hip sometimes. Strange, I know :$

I used to cut on my arm/wrist but I didn't want people to know I did it anymore and I have a job where I have to wear a tshirt now so I just swapped to my stomach.

I have done it on my thighs, my right lower leg, and my left lower arm.

And now I have a bunch of ugly scars that I absolutely hate.

I have cut on my right shoulder, left and right arms (I try to avoid arms though, because I am in T-Shirts most of the time), my thighs (again trying to avoid this for swim season), hips, stomach, ribs, I have cut once on the foot and on the lower leg. I have tried hand and fingers but it didn't work out too well.

Mostly on my right, upper thigh. A few times on my stomach (thankfully didn't scar), once on my chest, quite a few times on either hip, and once on the side of my knee.

I've been self-harm free for three weeks now though.

How far do I have to go to make you understand?
I wanna make this work so much it hurts...
But I just can't keep on giving, go on living with the way things are.
So I'm gonna walk away, and it's up to you to say how far...

I sh on my right outer thigh and in the winter, my left arm/wrist. But that's too easy for others to see and notice as I have to wear a t shirt to work.

the usual places are: thighs, stomach, arms, wrists.
But I have also cut on my breasts, hands, legs, ankles, feet, hips, lips.
Now when I do it, I have to be very careful where I do it as I will have to wear short sleeves to work soon and it could also ruin my chances of getting the job I want in the future if it gets put on any of my medical records that I'm cutting/burning again

My right thigh. The whole space from my waist to my knee is all scarred (or cut). I've cut my wrists, left calf, left sholder, feet, chest, stomach and neck.

I was really putting in a good effort to stop at first, but now not so much. I have a dance recital that involves a very short dress which is why I wanted to stop, but now I'm just moving around to places that I can hide (mostly stomach)

i used to cut on my arms but it got hard to hide so i did on my stomach but now im working on quittng atm

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.

None of you need to cut anywhere. Trust me, it's not worth it. Being a sh victim myself, I can tell you all that it is one of the worst possible ways to handle a situation. It's not easy, but quitting is possible. PM or VM me if any of you ever need to talk.

Make it stop,
Let this end.
This life chose me, I'm not lost in sin.
But proud I stand of who I am,
I plan to go on living.

I cut on my inner forearms. And sometimes my things.

I never did it on my wrist.
I always did it on my ankles, my left hand, or on my upper left thigh.
Also right above my left knee is where the most visible scars are because that was usually the deepest cuts.

When you can't find your way home,
and when life gets too hard to face on your own.
I will stand as a light through the darkness unknown,
I will walk with you, so you're never alone.
