Self harming issues

Question Posted Thursday April 4 2013, 7:44 pm

Im 14/f and ive been depressed for quite a bit of time. I started having family issues and then my friends started talkig about me behind my back. I have about 2 good friends now which havent changed their opinions of me like everyone else. Although, the smilig girl at schooll is tired of hiding behind a smile. I started thinking abiut suicide and self harm and then at the end of february, i started it all. Its been hard and everyday has gotten maybe a little better but not much. I hate myself. I act before i think. I feel numb. Unwanted. Useless. Stupid. I used to only cut with scissors. It got away the emotional pain but tonight i mangled a razor blade and used it instead. It wont stop bleeding. The pain was nice. I needed it. I dont want therapy and my parents dont know anytjung. What do i do and how do i overcome my addicion?

Well you're not alone. There are so many girls (and boys) who have self-harmed. I have as well but it went on for 6 years. I never got help and I still struggle with wanting to do it.
Now, I wish I had gotten help.
You have to talk to someone about this. You can get over this and you obviously want to before it gets worse. There are people will help you overcome this.

They will help you work on your confidence, and then work through your problems and how to deal with them the right way. Because your body doesn't deserve what you're doing to it.
You might not want to go to therapy or counseling but it's harder to do this by yourself or with the support with two of your friends.
Talk to someone and get the help you need. Good luck.

A. you are too young to be scarring up your body

B. If your "friends" are talking about you, f*#* them. walk up to them and say F YOU, aint nobody got time for all that.

C. The whole depression thing is a hard one for me. Because I myself struggle with it and I did drugs as a result. That is not the correct way to handle it obviously so, we have to do constructive things. Do you play play sports? Join any clubs at school? Do you have hobbies? painting, drawing, writing, sketching? Do you like to sing, dance, act?

D. If you still feel like you need to feel some type of pain, Id say get tattoos but youre too young so, Im going to suggest you go to a gym. join boxing or some mma type crap and just beat the shiz out of someone.

But in all seriousness don't ever let anyone make you feel less than you are. you are a beautiful, important,smart being put on this earth for a purpose and if anyone says differently dismiss them. nobody is ever going to love you as much as you love yourself, so start loving yourself!

Right Now!!!!
