told me to cut deeper + kill myself - March 31st 2011, 12:11 PM

i dont know if this is even in the right section but oh well..
somebody who used to be my bestfriend seems to have turned into a complete bitch overnight.
she said to me today "can i see your wrists?" so i showed them her. then she goes " i think you should cut deeper"
i justr shrugged.
then about 10 mins later she goes, " you know when you were going to kill yourself?"
me: "yea...?"
her: "why didn't you?"
me: *shrugs*
then she turned away and mutters to herself " i wish you had. nobody likes you." I dont think she intended for me to hear.
the thing is,even though i know i should ignore it, its really hard to ignore it, and now i really want to kill myslef + cut even more.
if it wasnt for the fact i dont have a razor or knife with me, i probably would be cutting right now.

I'm so sorry things are like this at the moment, your friend should never have said that. Whether she is upset with you or not, she should never say that to anyone. She is wrong, you are amazing and beautiful and most definitely shouldn't hurt yourself.
Maybe you could talk to a family member or if you are in education a teacher? Someone who could help and support you through this.
If you ever want/need to talk, feel free to PM me,
Stay strong and take care,

Omg please dont cut. i know it can be addictive ive been there. Your ex"friend" was so sososo wrogn to say that. That isnt true people do like you i promise and i feinatley do. Shes just one of thos emean people that want to put people down so that she feels better about herself. I know its hard but if you can find the strength to ignore it that would be so much better. She doesnt know what she is saying and i can guarentee if you went through with it she would feel really bad, unless shes not human. Im so sorry that things are bad like this but try alternatives to cutting. You dont need to kill yourself you are perfect, special, wanted, needed and beautiful. The reason your friend said that i know it sounds weird but its noramlly because they are jealous so take it as a copliment. I know that is a really weird way of looking at it but if you understand me then yh. Instead of cutting try drawing/singing/writing/screaming/counting/hitting a pillow/stabbing an orange/punish yourself by not cutting/think of the scars you may get/think of the upset youl cause to your family. Next time you feel liek cutting/ comiting suicide please call someone straight away that you trust and tell them everything. Talk it out tht way when your done you wont feel like cutting. I hope things get beter between that mean person and you, PM me if you ened to tlak or your feling down. xx Love pixie xx

Hey there.

I can not explain to you how sorry I am that your friend has said this to you and I can only begin to imagine how horrible you must feel that you have heard her say this. I don't agree with your friend at all and I think it was incredibly unfair of her to say this to you.

Through out out life, we're all going to get people saying horrible things at some point. I wish there were not people out there who do go around saying this because when it comes to mental health and self harm etc its a really sensitive subject and makes the person who is having to hear the things being said, really upset and can even set them back a bit. I wish people could understand how much it hurts you to go through this because you don't deserve to go through this or to have people saying these things to you. You ARE worth so much more than any of what that girl has said to you. You don't need to hurt yourself and dying is definitely not the way out. Self harm and suicidal thoughts are really hard to deal with but you are worth more than it.

I don't know what has happened to make you feel this way or I don't even know how you are feeling, but I want you to know that I'm here if you need anyone and that you are more than welcome to talk to us if you need help with your self harm and your thoughts.

You can do this. Keep your chin up.

mega bitch, show her how strong you are by resisting the temtation

"Life isn't about how popular you are... What girl or boy you are dating or who you know. Life is about always being true to who you are or what you believe in. Never let anyone convince you that their way is better than your way. In the end all we have is our hearts... and our minds. This is the reason why we sing... this is the reason why we cry... this is why we live."

Re: told me to cut deeper + kill myself - April 5th 2011, 03:44 PM

thank you all for the support <3
i took everything you said on board, and i resisted it- i didnt cut!
since then, she has apologised, but shes also said a few more things simmilar to it... i dont think she realises just how much her comment affected me.
i havnt cut since, and im trying really hard not to.
i have been using some of the copig strategies i found on TH, and they are really helping. its still rediculously difficult to stop, and i dont think any of my friends or family really understand... they think its as simple as "just dont do it anymore"... its hard to talk to them, because they dont really understand. i have tried to explain it to them, but none of them seem to understand that its a bit like an addiction for me.
its been lovely on this site being able to talk to other people who understand, and i thank you alll for being so supportive <3

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.
