I hope this can help you because It helped me, I threw out everything that I used to cut myself with and I thought of happier things like being with my family, or friends and when you become a parent ( that's if you want to ) but if you do and your kids see wherever it is you cut and they ask you what happened to your arm, what are you gonna tell them? I really hope this helps
I want you to be your old self again too. Talk to your sisters about it. I'm sure they're gonna be able to help you somehow. Find what used to be FUN to you. Go to the beach. Find YOUR HAPPINESS. Music, playing your guitar. Singing your favorite song. Dancing, make a youtube video again. Talk to your soulmate. To someone you know you're gonna find your smile again. Know that the world may try in all of it's might to get to you but you continue to have faith and hope that things happen for a reason and that each one of the hardest is where we learn the most. You are a beautiful, smart, charming, loving person. Don't ever let them take your light from you.
You're not your old self. I read the way you describe yourself at 13 in your comments to Ultimate_Genjutsu. I have a hard time picturing that. I don't know who you used to be, but I can tell you that the Ashlynn I've come to know on ASK is polite, respectful, helpful, intelligent, articulate, and insightful. It's a delight to read your knowledgeable and courteous answers. Don't beat yourself up about what's in the past. You can't go back and change it and it's not productive to dwell on it. Instead you should be proud at how far you've come. Life's a journey. The important thing isn't where you started, but where you're headed.
i once had people think i was cutting myself, and in a way i tried, but then my friends tried stopping me and i got in trouble and then i just stopped. if your friends are real they will tell a consoler or someone and it should help
I know people say to "talk to a counselor," but that doesn't always work. I went through this for a long time, and the only thing that helped me was one of my good friends, she figured out what I was doing and was constantly helping me. She made me promise her to not and throw away what I was using to cut. Having a friend help you is so big and will definitely help a lot! Find something that can take up your time and make you tired, like running, playing guitar, shooting baskets etc. Try and do as much as possible! I know how hard it is and I hope this helps! but if none of this works please get some help!
Hey there I may be a little late on your question if you ever feel like cutting yourself again just say a prayer. Close your eyes and take a deep breathe relax yourself. Then go talk to a family member or a close friend. You can do this !
