Falling Down....

I'm a cutter. I've been a cutter for 3 years now, probably gonna be 4 years soon. I said in another story on here how I was very upset and cut myself yesterday. Yeah, well I cut myself again today...I hate myself. I really do. Cutting is such a bad coping mechanism. I wish I could be like other people who can just deal with their emotions. I hate that I feel the need to cut every day. It is so hard to resist it. Especially when the tools you need are right in front of your face. It tempts me and I dont know why, but lately I've been giving in. And its getting worse. Everything seems to be going wrong. I dont know what to do anymore...Please someone comment...I need someone to talk to...

Dear Sarah,
by: Maddie

You are not alone! I have had so many friends who have cut themselves in the past..it's not an uncommon thing. You mentioned that you don't know how other people cope with their emotions so well. As annoying emotions are, they are unfortunately unavoidable and we all run into them. However, cutting is not a reasonable solution. Why leave scars on your precious skin when you can do other things to let go of your anger? When I feel stressed or upset I like to scream. Maybe outside or into a pillow, or anything. Taking a bubble bath or going for a swim is also beneficial. Some people like to exercise. But the best thing you can do is pray. I'm praying for you, Sarah, and I hope you can overcome your temptation to cut yourself! You are beautiful!
