be careful, don't just jump off a roof when you're feeling down. Find an alterbative. Feel better.


Don't let anyone say you're not beautiful, stay true to you!

I know that when your feeling down, you can get pretty reckless and just watch to bash yourself. But this is not the answer, in fact the pain you cause yourself will only make you feel worse.

Find alternatives: http://www.teenhelp.org/forums/f12-s...ves-self-harm/

Take some deep breathes and calm yourself down. Scream into your pillow. Breaking bones is a bad injury that sometimes never completely heals.

Have you told your parents about how you feel? Seeking help from a therapist may be a good idea.

Take care<3

Self-harm is self-harm, no matter how you do it or the extent it goes to. My suggestion would just be to think about why you want to do it. Give it a good, long think. Write about it if need be, or use some other form of creative expression. Once you've pinpointed why you want to do it, the problems might not seem so massive and you will be able to deal with it without self-harming. Reaching out to someone (either on here or in real life) is also a good idea. Having someone talk you through it can help immensely. I'm always up for a chat.

Listening to music is a really good idea. Have you considered investing in an iPod/other sort of mp3 player?

okay, if you wanna hurt yourself hold ice on ur hands, lip or tongue... it hurts so much without damaging you
find alternatives like drawing if you like.

It's great that you've accepted your problem, it's a hard step to take but you did it. Like other people have said what you are doing is dangerous and if you landed funny you could be injured for life. Try and use an alternative people have suggested, there are so many on the sticky thread one is sure to suit you. If you can't face up to telling your parents maybe a school councillor could help you. If you need a chat I'm here for you good luck. Xxx


When life gives you one thousand reasons to cry, show life one million reasons to SMILE!
