I TOLD SOMEBODY! - April 8th 2011, 10:07 PM

oh my gosh. I told someone that I cut. I'm so like, nervous? excited? I have no clue. I told her on MSN which I wish I hadn't done, but I wouldnt have the guts to otherwise. So I guess it's better than nothing. She said "Gabby. Gabby no." and got into that and I must of said sorry a million times. It's kinda akward now. She was going to come over so we could be face to face, but her dad's off shore and her mom is on vacation. And my moms not home. So we can't do that. like I said, it's kinda akward and I don't really know what to expect. We're not really saying anything now . . . She keeps on asking if I'm okay tho.

She promised she wouldnt tell a soul.

Now what do I do? I'm shaking

That's a really, really brave thing to do. You should be so proud of yourself. And don't ever think you need to say sorry for anything.
Just remember this in the future - remember how brave you were

Well done, Gabrielle. You should feel really proud with yourself. You did the right thing to tell your friend; she sounds like she will look out for you and help you when you need it.

Good job! You definitely don't have to be sorry, she's just concerned and wants to help. Hey, that's what friends are for.

You have nothing to be sorry about Opening up like that is a really big deal. It takes courage, and I'm glad that you were able to do it<3. You're taking steps in a very positive direction- know that you're strong enough, that you are enough.

Hey there

Well done. It's amazing that you managed to tell your friend. I'm really glad you have someone close to you who you feel comfortable with telling. It's really good to have people there for you when you need them. It's definitely a step in the right direction and something to be proud of!

Stay strong.
Jessie

I'm really glad to hear you did that Gabrielle!
You should be so proud of yourself! I'm absolutely proud of you!!

Doing something like that is really hard. But she seems like a great person who is willing to be there for you if at all you may need her, and that's a really good sign! Now you'll have someone you can lean back on, and more than that, someone with whom you're comfortable sharing these things with!!

Take care! <3

Racing with the eagle, soaring with the wind.

Gabrielle,

I'm so glad you were able to open up about it! It sounds like you have a really caring friend there, and she wants to help you, so that's even better. It's hard enough to tell someone, but it's even harder if they don't take it well.

You don't have to do anything now. Just the knowledge that your friend knows and cares might be enough to make you feel a little better. Having someone you can talk to is definitely helpful; even having someone who justs asks, once in a while, if you're okay, can make a difference.

If you want to talk to it about her, it might help to invite her to ask questions. The more she understands, the better she can help. Try and be as open and honest about it, and know that you can make it through - together.

I wish you all the best.

Wow, well done.
Telling someone is a great first step on the road of recovery.
Now that your friend is aware, she can help you through your bad times, and be there for you through everything.

I'm so proud, telling your friend was one of the best things you could have done
The awkwardness will fade, don't worry, and your friend seems genuinely concerned and non-judgemental. Best wishes <3


PM me anytime, I love helping people and will do my best to help you <3


And if I bleed, I'll bleed knowing you don't care

Thanks Chess (;

I actually said to her:
"Liz, did I you know, scare you a little bit the other day?"
and she said:
"No, not scare. I'm just worried about you is all."
and I said:
"You don't have to be worried. But you'd ask me if you wanted to know anything, right? No need for it to be awkward"
she said:
"Yeah, oh course (:"



But I know that she's pretty uncomfortable. I'm sure if she did, she wouldn't say so I'm just trying to give her some space to think it over and stuff. I knew that she'd be a little uncomfortable with it and all, so It's no biggie.

I actually haven't spoke with her about it at all since then. Or seen her. Tomorrow I'll probably see her at school though. I think it should all go well and stuff.

I'm so proud of you honey that was a really brave thing to do. My ex-bf found out accidentaly when he saw my scars. and from there everyone sort of just started knowing. I never would have had the courage to tell anyone otherwise. It's not so hard when its not a huge secret. So congratiolations. You've taken the first step to healing, quitting, and getting better.
