I used to think both ways. I wanted to make myself hurt so that I can feel better. Like I cut or burn myself and after that my hair nails and skin just felt better. I felt more comfortable in the clothes I wore. I was able to be more social and I had way more energy. That is, until I had to do it again. It was doing more bad then good though.
hurts you all the more! people don't know what to do to help you. Why do you do bad things to yourself? you are mostly further defeating and taking yourself away from others.
It hurts you and is a dangerous dissorder.
You can pass out and bleed to death easily from it. Also, it leaves perminent scars.
Tell me one way it helps?
How does punishing yourself help? Has it made you a better person?
If it's not making you a better person, then don't do it. The purpose of punishment is to modify behavior.
But if it doesn't make you good, then it is wasted punishment.
