    Right now it's because I feel bad about crying... because my abusive idiot of an ex contacted me... my entire body hurts and I feel like I need an outlet. I know it doesn't help... but yeah.

    People don't accept me as I am, and that makes me feel inadequate. I will try to keep from hurting myself but it still hurts me inside.

    My thinking that deserve to hurt. (I know that I don't)

    That's how I'm feeling right now

    And with the bad news I got earlier, obviously the world is telling me I don't deserve to be happy. (It's not really that major in the scheme of things, but it still makes me feel awful.)

    I just feel like nothing I do can stop these feelings and I know that cutting would, at least for a little bit. that's what makes it so hard to resist.

    Hi prettylies, you don't need to cut. Get some ice cubes and run them along your arm...that might help. There's loads of alternatives to self harming such as using an elastic band on your wrist, I hope you begin to feel better soon and know that you're not alone.

    I can't think of what it is. I'm mostly happy and had a good day. But all of a sudden I started wanting to hurt myself. In a moment of weakness yesterday I bought something sharp to cut with. I should probably return them, but I want to use one. But I can't let myself. (I also can't seem to let myself just enjoy this day as it ends unfortunately.)

    *hugs* I hope you don't give in. Bring them back but for now just stay safe tonight, distract yourself as much as possible, throw on a comedy or a drama and let these thoughts ride out. We care about you here :)

    I really identify with that :/ Definitely felt that way for this reason before. I hope you can get through it without hurting yourself.

    I'm angry at my mentally abusive ex. Its not feeling sorry for myself that makes me want to hurt myself its anger and the feeling that I could hurt him.he thinks I'm a joke he thinks I would never do it....so I want to hurt him and prove I wasn't crying wolf and seeking attention. I am mentally exhausted and i want him to learn that I'm serious

    Because I need to calm down, to feel something, to obtain release.
