Can I ask for an honest opinion? I've stopped self harming several months ago but I have a few noticeable scars on my arms. I try to cover them up on social occasions, at home, when I'm out etc as much as I can. However, in sport lesson or if it's a dreadfully hot day I wear a t-shirt. People know about it and no one asks me questions so that doesn't bother me. I do hate them, I treat them and I DO NOT wear them as a trend but I am not ashamed any more of it. Does this make me attention seeking?
No you aren’t attention seeking. Well at least it doesn’t sound like it. Whenever I just have scars I don’t really seem to care if the people close to me see them, I always cover mine at school though. But promise me those scars with stay scars! And also unless you are making statuses on Facebook saying ‘proud cutter’ or like shoving your arms in peoples faces you might be, but it doesn’t sound like it ;p
How did it get to the point where a blade runs my life.. I need to get better and I was clean for 3 days.. but the urges were to much and I gave in and cut deeper then I ever have... I'm hopeless..
You aren’t hopeless, you just need to keep yourself occupied, you’re stronger then that. Even if it’s just a few days at a time, 3 days was really good! Try for 5 next? (:
