Hello. I personally have only used self-harm and a form of training, and have never done it out of hatred for myself (even though I used to hate myself), but I would like to share my thoughts. _ Not long ago I stropped altogether. Self-harm, it happens when we channel our anger and disappointment for the world on ourselves. To all who hurt themselves: It does not have to be this way! Do you have something to enjoy? Can you see anything you like? If so, try and turn that good feeling on yourself. - Just as you do the hate when you cut etc. Overcoming self-hatred is a gradual process. It cannot happen overnight. But be the observer! Find out what makes you hate yourself. Find out what makes you want to hurt yourself. Then find out what makes you feel good about yourself. And eventually associate more with what makes you feel better. Sometimes this means giving up on certain things. Example: Doe likes music. Doe is also a cutter. Doe listens to a heavy metal band with dark lyrics. Even though Doe likes the music, it makes Doe want to cut. The music is making Does condition worse. So, for Doe's own good, Doe replaces that band with something that doesn't make Doe want to cut. ----- Wishing you all good luck. Ai To Hikari.
