Don't self harm. I've done it, and I regret it. Cutting and burning. The burns itch every day. You get a few hours of feeling good when you self harm but the cost of that is a scar that lasts a lifetime. It's not worth it. I hate looking at the stupid scars on my body every day. There are other ways to cope. Your body's ability to heal itself is limited. If you burn the skin away the scar tissue that replaces it is wrinkly and itchy and ugly. Instead of self harming I exercise. I go running. When it hurts I just run harder. The worse the pain gets the harder I run. It's kind of like self harm. But it's good for you! Don't hurt your body. Don't self harm.
