Exclamation give me a reason not to? - April 18th 2012, 05:35 AM

This thread has been labeled as triggering, particularly on the subject of self harm, by the original poster or by a Moderator. The contents of this thread might therefore not be suitable for certain sensitive users. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

I had a horrible day. I'm down to one true friend. I hate everything in my life right now. There's no way in hell it's going to get better until this summer when I can just get away from everyone. The only thing that seems like it'll help is slicing open my arm which hasn't been touched by a blade in over a month. (sorry to make it sound like that, I don't know how else to put it at this point)
I need someone to give me a heart felt reason NOT to do it. Please don't point me to the thread with all of the reasons/distractions. I've read them. But it seems like if someone doesn't mean it directly to ME, then it doesn't have any meaning and It doesn't stop me.
I have no one else to talk to right now. I don't know what to do.

If I can't stop you.... Leave me a note?

I'm sorry you had a horrible day. I wish I could help you feel better. Try to focus on the good things in life, even if there aren't many. Just know you're not alone. I don't know what to say. My boyfriend got me upset tonight and hurt me and he said "That's life." I guess it is life, right? It's hurt after hurt after hurt. With a few good things in between. I don't know why we shouldn't cut, but I just know that someday there HAS to be something better for us than this. I don't know how to get there, and I don't know when we will, but all I know is that there has just got to be a good life ahead for us. Please don't cut. You've gone a month, and that's amazing. Get through this hard day, okay? I'm here with a bad night as well. We'll get through it without cutting. <3 You can beat this and get through this. Don't abuse your beautiful body <3

PM me if you need anything!

I may be a little late in responding to this, for which I apologise. First of all, well done on going over a month without self-harming. That's a huge achievement and now that you've done it once, you can do it again. Each time is easier.
I want to let you know that there are so many people who care. If it helps, I care. I truly do believe that it will get better some day. Maybe not soon, but one day, everything will get better. I do wish you the best of luck in life.
If you ever want anyone to talk to, please feel free to PM me at any time.

Do not base your happiness off someone else.
