Unhappy I'm such a failure... - June 4th 2011, 04:52 AM

I was in the hospital for nearly 4 months for cutting. I promised everyone I wouldn't cut anymore.

I don't.


I bite myself and hit my shins.

That great that you aren't cutting. Maybe you could promise everyone that you wont bite yourself or hit your shins, or better still, all forms of self harm?

You are not a failure! I hate that you are feeling that way about yourself. After years of one form of self-harm, I picked up another form. So I know what it feels like to seem like you're a failure, but trust me...you're not. And I know it's hard to believe that you're not a failure, but please believe me when I say that you aren't. Have you thought about maybe talking to someone about how you're feeling? That could really help you out. If you need someone to talk to, feel free to PM me. I can totally relate to this situation.


"When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down "happy." They told me I didn't understand the assignment. I told them they didn't understand life." --John Lennon

"What matters isn't that you fell, but that you got back up. No matter how many times it takes, it's that you get back up. We fall down and all isn't lost." --Renee Yohe

Hey.. First off, you're not a failure.

I know what it's like to switch to a different form of self harm, after I stopped cutting I switched to punching myself in the legs when I was upset.

Just try to stop self harming completely, I know it's hard but you can do it.

PM me if you ever wanna talk..

Same thing happened to me. Hard, isn't it? It's okay that you're upset about it; good, even. It means that you know it's bad. You'll make it. Really.
