    Are You An Angel?

    Little Boy: Are you an angel? Me: What? Little Boy: My mum told me that those who have marked wrists are angels. Me: I'm not an angel Little Boy: Of course you are. Mum said that only angels harm themselves because they don't like life on Earth. This world is destroying them...

    Me and my friends are going to do a fundraiser

    in my school for depression and self harm and things like that. I know I'm not the only person in my school that has problems. One of my friends had autism and nobody even really likes her. We are going to call ourselves the 'Happy Hearts'. All the money we gain will be sent to...

    The Butterfly Project.

    The Rules are: 1. When you feel like you want to cut, take a marker, pen, or sharpies and draw a butterfly on your arm or hand. 2. Name the butterfly after a loved one, or someone that really wants you to get better. 3. You must let the butterfly fade naturally. NO scrubbing it...

    I have been clean for a couple of months,

    then I got brand new razors. Then I just let loose forgetting all the bs and the ones who broke my heart.

    I haven't self-harmed in two months.

    (Since I was last institutionalized for trying to commit suicide..again.) I've been self harming for a few years now and I've never went more than a week without self harming, until now of course. I stopped self harming but started to get into other things again like Ana & Mia...

    After my parents found out

    that I cut, I felt so sad and frustrated. I didn't feel like a weight just dropped off my shoulders bit instead it felt like more was piled on. I felt this way for 3 month. One day I decided that I couldn't take it anymore. I cut. I.felt so relieved after that. I want to control...

    I'm trying so hard not to,

    I'm at my grandmothers house in the mountainous rainforest area and along with not wanting to disappoint her, I don want it to get infected while I'm in a country with poor healthcare. I've drawn lines on my wrists where I would've cut, but it's not helping. Please help

    I knew I wasn't going to resist long.

    I just keep slipping up. Why do I still feel the need to do it? I am not as depressed as I used to be, I feel pretty good compared to those days, but I suppose I still use it to cope with all the stress. I wish I had never started. Now I have to find a way to hide the cuts from...

    I haven't self-harmed in about 4 days.

    I'm trying to occupy myself with something to do so I don't do anything. The longest I have went without, would have to be almost 2 weeks. Not that much but I'm trying now... it usually doesn't take long for me to do it again though.

    I never thought a razor blade would comfort me

    more than people could. That I find myself cutting deep enough that blood is on my finger tips. I never thought I'd cut hateful words in to my skin. I never thought that I'd do this... But I did. And I do.

    I like the sight of my own blood, I like to know that I'm only numb inside, to defy my parents as in when my parents anger me, which they do often, I cut to make myself feel like they can't control what I do, to do things I know would **** them off. My mom probably...

    Today, I'm going to share my story with you.

    :) Almost two years ago I fell into serious depression. I was crying myself to sleep every other night and I believed that no one cared for me. Not too many people know what it feels like when not a single soul gives a damn about you. Doesn't feel very good ... I had extremely...

    Last night I slipped.

    After almost 2 ******* years of not marking myself I slipped. I became so numb to emotions that I barely felt anything. It felt like a scratch but they were deep. They should've hurt. I should've cried out in pain. I should've just cried myself to sleep. I regret what I've done...

    Just cut "kill me" on my thigh.

    I think those are the only other words I've ever cut except "fat" and "ugly"

    These cuts now are because I just had a great

    conversation with someone that will never be a part of my life that I wish they could be. Dreams and cuts are all I have.

    So I need to tell someone about this.

    So the reason for my cutting has changed, yesterday I cut cause I wanted to feel the razor it self cut my arm. I wasn't sad or depressed, I actually wanted it. I wanted the cuts and it felt great. I was even a little turned on by the it and I honestly don't know how to react...

    Oh my god. ****. I hate myself.

    I'm so annoying. I'm expendable to all my friends. In my darkest hour everyone leaves me. The razor offered sanctity, if only for a few seconds. But I dragged the time out, going deeper, turning the single cut into a gaping hole until I'd been working on the cut for half an hour...

    People don't take cutters seriously.

    If they knew someone who cuts they would say that we are attention seekers or we're creepy or just in a growing up stage where teenagers are just confused. Like really?? If we want attention, we wouldn't hide when we cut, or if this is like some part of growing up we wouldn't be...
