i'm a little afraid of myself right now. i only cut myself once recently when things were really bad for me. i ended up at a day clinic therapy place for several days and i'm doing a lot better now. my problem is that i think a lot more about hurting myself. it is hard to talk myself out of things like that all the time. i kind of went from suicidal thoughts to more along the lines of self harming thoughts. so the point of this thread is methods that will help me not have those thoughts at all. like... when you are thinking of cutting yourself, what do you say to yourself to help you stay safe? i'm doing okay currently and i'm not feeling terrible, i just really don't want to be at the terrible place i can be without all the help i can get. any of your thoughts are appreciated.
