Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 968 People

    Stop The World, I'm Getting Off.

    A broken mirror, A bleeding first, Holding onto a silver razor, As tears stream down, Onto lips unkissed. She is not one that will be missed. I'll show you mine, Only if you show me yours, We'll compare scars, Decide who's worse. I've come to the point, Where I'm bleeding...

    Addictive

    For me, every day without cutting is a small victory. I used to be very dependent on cutting. Every time I got sad, or angry, or frustrated, I would cut just so it would all go away for just a little while. So I could just take a moment and not have to worry about all the bad...

    I've been cutting for about 7 months.

    It's gotten to the point where I don't even know why I do. My mom knows I used to cut, but she doesn't know I still do. I want to quit, but I just don't think I can. Does anyone have any tips or suggestions?

    when I was 12. Because of a puny, funny reason; I was not able to study all of the subjects for the supposed final exams tomorrow that day. I was so depressed because I was afraid I would get zero. The crazy part was I didn't even make a move to study. I just cried. I was...

    So I saw my therapist during one of my runs

    Cutting yourself is like cutting your own heart

    open. No matter how hard you try, only blood will ever escape your body. Your emotions and pain will forever be within you until you are ready to turn it into love.
