I made a fool of myself - November 21st 2016, 10:50 PM

Today I made a fool outta myself today in front of my crush. I draw on myself alot and I hated my teacher so I fell asleep in class and I didnt know that the ink went on my face. And my crush saw and he snorted. He said ¨Nice creation Cas¨ Im like huh? He said look in the mirror when ur Ma gets here. Im like okay. And I went to my Ma bc she was here and I look in the mirror the ink was all over my face. As soon as we got home I cried. And Im thinkin on i I should cut myself. I am sensitive and my trigger points are high, and only time I cut is when I dont havin anythin to smoke. And I dont. Im in alot of mental pain rn and extermly triggered.

Hi Casper,

That must be a bad situation. Do you talk to him regularly? If you do, and you're not too embarrassed, talk to him about it. Just tell him you fell asleep in class and that you didn't realize that you got ink on your face. I'm sure he will understand.

If he doesn't, then he will eventually forget it in the future. I've done some silly stuff in the past and it's blown over so far.

This situation isn't something that's worth cutting yourself over. Cutting wont help this situation in any way. It might actually make you feel worse than you currently do, as you might feel guilty about cutting yourself.

I hope you start feeling better. Try and distract yourself and feel better soon.

Brittany

Hey there,

No, you should not cut yourself. I know you are feeling upset right now and you might feel upset for a while but self harm will not help. I encourage you to do something other than self harm. Look at the Alternatives to Self Harm for some ideas. It is likely that with time your crush will forget about this incident.

Doing something silly in front of your crush is actually quite common and chances are he'll probably forget about it by the next day anyway. I know I have drawn on myself before and gotten ink on my face and had a few people point it out but by the next day no one cared anymore, it isn't something that happens rarely and pretty quickly people get over it. No matter how embarrassed you feel now, it is not worth harming yourself over. Afterwards you'll feel even worse. Having a look at the Alternatives to Self Harm thread that Jenna linked is a good idea if you need alternatives and see if you can find something that will take your mind off what happened.

Look after yourself, don't forget we are always here if you need help with distractions.
