I self-harm and have been self-harming but I want to know does it hurt me or make me feel better I can figure it out anymore. My friends don't help me as much as they used to so I want to ask people who might understand.

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.

Tell me one way it helps?

Best Answer

It gives me a way to punish myself because many others including me believe I'm a bad person.

Best Answer

How does punishing yourself help? Has it made you a better person?

Best Answer

no but I was raised to know if i do something bad i get punished so i punish myself so my parents don't have to.

Best Answer

If it's not making you a better person, then don't do it. The purpose of punishment is to modify behavior.

Best Answer

thats why i don't stop. I'm always bad

Best Answer

But if it doesn't make you good, then it is wasted punishment.
