Stop hurting your beautiful skin! *self harm coping skills*
Man it sucks to want to hurt your self
But their is always a way, and it will ALWAYS get better. The tips are all from my personal use and experience. I have done every one of them and at some point in some situation they worked. I have not self harmed in over 4 years! (: I used to every single day, and trust me I still think about it when I get into my darkest moments,But I always come out on top. You can too!
1.) RUBBER BAND IT
While wearing your fave rubberband, flick it on your skin. Feel that burn? Flick it a few more times. Red marks swell, and the stings get stronger. But no cuts (:
2.) IS IT COLD? ( My absolute favorite)
Grab 2 ice cubes. Put one in each hand and make a fist. Hold your hands above your head allll the way. Super cold huh? Starts to reaaaaly hurt after a little time. Taking that pain from your mind and out into your body. Do you also feel the ice dripping down your arms? Imagine that the blood. But instead it's just water. And your just holding ice. Your simbolizing the 2 things most cutters look for in cutts, ( at personal experience ) the pain( from the ice) and the dripping of *blood* ( from the cold water dripping)
Keep your bodys beautiful lady's and gents!
These two are the only ones iv herd that didn't sound stupid and that actually worked. Let me know what you think or if you try any of if they help! ((:
