Re: Friend Takes Blame For Me - January 30th 2015, 02:47 AM

Hey!

Have you perhaps sat down with her and talked to her about some of the reasons why you DID start? Maybe it will clear things up a bit with her if you walk her through what made you actually want to start and why you though it would help, so that way she can stop blaming herself as much. You can also give her some of the reasons you self harm if you think that would help, and maybe the two of you can even become support systems for each other.

I'm sure you have probably tried talking to her in the past but maybe if you go into more detail and let her ask questions that may ease her mind a bit, it'll help?
