    When Im Frustrated

    i hurt myself sometimes. im trying to stop. if i am frustrated, angry, depressed, or sad or upset for any reason i want to cut myself. sometimes i pacify myself by hitting my head or arms on things, or choking myself. but i feel the need to cut myself and it never goes away.

    I Feel Like That

    When i remember some things or feel sad or blank. I want to hurt myself but i don't want others to see me like that. I hate it but it's how i feel. Easy to say '' don't do it'' but i don't want to do it.It's how i feel and i wish i didn't because it's difficult
