How Can I Stop Cutting Myself? I Need Help T_T

I don't wanna be my old self again...

Report as

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 don't know my old self, I was a disgrace, rude, naughty girl when i was 13. I had cut myself everyday...My sisters can't help me, they have to go back to their own colleges. My soul mate can't come because he's still has some football training to do...I H@TE my life -_-

You used to be fun, upbeat and lively when I met you. you were a kid when you were 13. We all have our down times. You are going through yours right now. Ash. I know a lot of people who will be really happy to be with you and hang out with you. That's inlcuding me. Hurting yourself won't fix anything. Go outside and take a wallk on the beach. Look at other people and observe how they deal with all their busy lives and see that you have a lot to be thankful for. That you can CHANGE how you feel. That it takes a lot of courage to get through what you are going through and that your friends are here to help you get through it. I'm here to help you get through it. Don't ever lose hope because in the end we all have God by our side watching us seeing and guiding us every step of the way. Search: Footprints in the sand.

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 !
