To End The Emotional Pain.....

I only cut myself when I can't stand the emotional pain any longer. When I'm upset with myself, I hit myself in the face. That hurt a lot!

I've given myself a black eye and bruises around my face and my head.

I try break the cutting cycle, it's hard. I'm seeing a therapist, and he helps me cope with my emotional pain by reminding me of my coping skill tools.

Sometimes I do self harm out of impulsive behavior or the voices in my head tells me to do it.

I have a few permanent scars from cutting in the past.

I really want to stop hurting myself.

please keep reminding yourself about the coping strategies you learn from your therapist, whenever you feel the need to hurt yourself. I'm seeking counseling too, and listen to my therapist and do what she says.
