Just a little lost...

by Sarah D

So, I've been cutting for about 2-3 years now. I'm 15. I've gotten help from people at a summer christian bible camp. I'm realizing lately though that I don't think I'm really ready to stop cutting. I don't want to cut, I don't like it, but sometimes there is just so much going on that I need it to stay sane. I am a christian, but if I'm not ready to stop cutting, then where do I go from here? I know cutting is technically a sin, but can't I be a christian and cut? I know eventually I'm going to have to stop cutting, but for now, I need it... Maybe I'll stop after high school... But my question I guess is this... Where do I go from here? I need to keep cutting, I'm not ready to stop just yet, but I still consider myself a christian... So yeah, Where do I go from here?

i know where you're coming from--i'm a christian and my dad's a pastor. i had been a cutter, but am doing my best to stay stopped(about 3months now)..what i would REALLY suggest is just digging into the Bible--the Psalms are some great verses and i find comfort in them. also, i'd suggest listening to uplifting praise and worship music. you might also want to check out jan kern's book "Scars that Wound, Scars that Heal" its an AMAZING book and has really helped me.
also, is there anyone there you can talk to, like a youth pastor or other christian you trust? my youth pastors are like my 2nd parents and i would be truly lost without them.
