Tell yourself that you are strong
I finally realized that when I did this, I was only isolating myself from others. I also realized how selfish I was being. I joined support groups and have followed their program. I have stopped trying to hurt myself and I am living a much improved life. What would I say to someone doing that? I would say stop doing it and reach out to someone like you for help.
I am the greatest thing that has ever happened, so why in the world would I ever hurt myself.
I wouldn't hurt myself. And if you are, you need to seek professional help.
Call me next time you want to do it again...
