cutting my self makes me feel better temporarily

by jessica

Im Jessica, im 12 years old.

I cant stop hurting my self, to feel better.
Its like a drug to me, and im becoming more addicted to it every time i cut my self, sometimes I even punch my self in the stomach. I even cut my self with a minor thing like when my friends get mad at me or something like that, I cant control my self.

A several of times I tried to take my life away but every time something or someone has to stop me.

I just hope I can do something about it.

Oh Darling, I feel so sorry for you. I'm praying now as I speak. Or type. Anyway, cutting yourself is not a solution, and self harm isn't doing you any good. There are so many other ways to let out your sorrow, but turn to God, because He is there to comfort you. He died on the cross, took the beating, took cuts and punches and death, all so that you do not have to suffer death. There will be trials, I cannot deny that, but it is your refining fire, the hotter the flames seem to be, the more beautiful and pure your gold heart will be, if you simply trust in Him to bring you out of it. He loves you, and wants to protect you and heal your pains. His gift is one that was paid in full, and denying the full extent of it is like throwing a box full of 1,000,000 dollar bills away. I can promise you that if you go to Him with your pain, you will be healed. God bless you.

self control-its crucial that you pay attention

i used to cut myself as well
and i realized that i wasnt gunna b able to stop if i didnt telll anyone about my problem
you need to talk to someone you can trust about your problem
and you need to look deep down inside of you and find the underlying problem of your self abuse

Also, i know how it feels when you feel as if you cannot control yourself
if you are a child of God, then you have the power to control that anger

anyways, you can control your anger by different breathing techniques, maybe excersising, listening to music
and there really are a lot of ways to control that anger
those are also some of the things that i do when i am mad and it calms me down

i really hope that my advice helps you.
ill pray for you=)

Jessica, God said in His Word "Before I formed you in your mother's womb I knew you. Before you were born I sanctified you." To be sanctified is to be set apart for His use. See, the enemy plants negative thoughts in your mind because He knows and understands that you are ONE OF THE GREAT ONES!!! You are chosen by the King Of The Universe to do GREAT THINGS! What an honor! See Jessica once you begin to know the promises that God has given to you, you will begin not cutting yourself, but instead cutting those negative thoughts down that's creating these feelings of you needing to cut yourself. Instead of using whatever object you're using to cut yourself, pick up God's Word, that's sharper than any two edged sword that will send the negative thoughts to flight. Once you begin to say and know what God says about you and repeat it in your mind over and over again, you will experience something more than a temporary fix of feeling better, but a high on life that even those hindering thoughts that make you cut yourself can't stand up against. I'm speaking to you from experience, being that at the tender age of 12, I had strong thoughts of suicide and wasn't far from doing it. I tried everything and alot of people didn't understand. But one night my grandmother and my mother gave me the Bible and as I began to read it those thoughts instantly stopped at that moment, now the thoughts would try and creep up into my mind and I fought it with a scripture from the Bible and within a couple of weeks the thought of suicide left me completely. See, God had plans for my life, He knew that I would have to minister to you one day about this. I'm now 26 years old all because I believed God's Word over some devil that may come in the form of hurtful friends, family, your own thoughts, or strangers. So get alone, get a Bible write down these scriptures word for word (Jeremiah 1:5 "Before I formed you in your mother's womb I knew you; Before you were born I sanctified you; I ordained you a prophet to the nations." (Jeremiah 29:11 God says, "I know what I'm doing. I have it all planned out- plans to take care of you, not abandon you, plans to give you the future you hope for." Jessica write these words hang them on your bedroom wall in the bathroom, have them on index cards and repeat these verses everyday you must and see how God WILL SAVE YOUR LIFE, just as He has done for me. I love you and I'm praying for you, I'm not worried about you because I know the cutting is going to stop and you'll be helping someone else with the same or simular situation. Most of all God Loves you More than you will ever know. Also while writing you this message God told me that you'll know that it's Him because someone else will come and give you the same scriptures that I was told to give to you. It may be from a friend, a church member, the television, I can't tell where exactly its coming from but know that its coming.
