    Keep telling myself I need to stop self harming, Its not working, I can't stop, I don't actually want to stop I just keep thinking about the scars, I cannot hide them much anymore, I just wear long sleeves but what about when it gets to summer :(
    I cannot stop self harming because its the only thing helping me to cope at the moment :(

    here's what i am doing to stop self harming at the moment, i take a marker and write on my arms where i usually cut. i write something caring and supportive to myself, like it's going to to be okay, or you are loved, or something like that. that way when i look at my arm in preparation for cutting i get an affirmation. hope that helps.
