    Very, very serious! Don't even think about it. Learn to deal with your emotions in a healthier way, self-harming is not the way to go about... Taking it out on yourself is never the answer when other people are boorish and inconsiderate. If you cut your wrist or some other vital area (eek) then think about the consequences of it – all the pain you will feel (ouch, ouch) and you might end up in the hospital. You shouldn't ever have to hurt yourself, if you do, come to me.

    Self harm can lead to death as well. Some people, who are in pain, think that their problem is unsolvable, that its just so painful that no one has ever experienced such pain. But you see, its not about problem being unsolvable, its about you seeing it to be so. You don't need others to make you understand that. You need yourself, only you can do it, because no one but you knows the pain you are experiencing. When you see your close friend or anyone dear to you in pain, what would you do? Talk to her maybe? Support her? Tell her it'll be okay? Tell her you are there for her? Well now view it from the other side That friend in pain is you now And the actions and support you would give that friend, give it to yourself. Would you tell your close friend to self harm to get away from emotional pain and turning to physical as its less painful compared to whats happening inside her? I don't think so, as i wouldn't want my close friend to do so. Thus, don't allow yourself, love yourself just like you love your close friend. Treasure your body, your mother had to carry you in her womb for many months, uncomfortable, and went through unbearable pain to give birth to you, thus show your gratitude at least by not harming what she was protecting from world, inside her body, just to let you develop into healthy baby. Its so important to realize this as soon as possible, because time is not something that would go backwards, so you cannot go back to change your past, thus focus on your future, as thats what you can see and control. Surely not letting go off the past will have an effect on future, thus let it go. I usually say this to people that do this cutting or wish to suicide: 'When flying off the bridge, you understand that all your problems are solvable. Except one - you're already flying off the bridge ..' So whether your question was about your problem or anyone you know, make sure to relay this message to all dear to you people that are going through pain. :)

    if i could, i'd talk to you, one on one, talk though your problems and all and support you at least emotionwise i see that you are at your weak state , its sad to see this. All i can give to you, is advice on how to handle all the struggle, but you see, the one to make decisions is none but you. may i know how old you are?

    @AliceCullen why would i think you are crazy? I asked about age, because younger people have softer hearts and 'inner worlds', thus they are not strong enough to bear the pain they experience, they need someone to help them which is why im worried. Im 19, and i have been through painful days and all, specially considering the fact that im HSP with high level of empathy, it was unbearable, but good thing im spiritually strong, and i grew to be stronger. So you need someone that can push you to get stronger. :)

    this process, i do it in meditations when im too depressed i just sit and think of all bad stuff then i do the actions i told you, but in my head by just imagining since you are cutting for you, physically doing it at first is better to make you get used to it

    see, your mindset itself is in cutting so the change has to start about how you think meaning you must believe you can you see our brain is like this, when we tell it 'i cant', it just accepts it, in other words you are not even let it try it out, your brain doesnt know 'i cant' phrase
