....? - October 23rd 2011, 04:29 AM

Ive gone back to feeling numb again.
I dont think I want to be like this, especially because it effects my boyfriend.
But...
I feel so.... i dunno.... comfortable this way, especially because im going through a hard time again.

Is it 'normal' to feel this way, to feel safe, secure feeling depressed and wanting to keep self harming. Insted of being happy which feels good i must say. But still feels abit....odd?

Just wondering coz i have no clue

Thanks

yeah i feel that way too sometimes, like you already know i dont really want to stop self harming, so i get where you're coming from. i think it is normal since both of us feel that way, it may not be good though.
But no matter what happens best of luck to you.

I sometimes feel more comfortable being depressed than happy, because when I'm depressed I feel like I have more control over the crap that's going on in my life or at least how I handle it. I want to keep self harming, but I don't, primarily because my boyfriend doesn't like that I do it, and he doesn't like when I'm depressed. But I get where your coming from.

I know what you mean. Sometimes, I just want to feel depressed because I'm used to it. Being happy seems scary, almost.
