⚠️TW⚠️ Needed to tell someone at least

⚠️TW⚠️ Hi, no one has to read this but I just have to get this off my chest. Thing is that I’ve started to go clean from SH and That was a way of feeling something other than sadness and being numb. Everything I do fells fake like, if I smile I feel like I shouldn’t be doing that or if I’m upset about something I end up blocking everyone else out and it’s gotten so bad to the point that nobody actually wants to stick around anymore. What’s worse is that my parents don’t even think there’s anything wrong with me even after she found out that I was intentionally hurting myself, they say in too young or that I’m too lucky to be depressed or that I’m just doing it for attention. I don’t know what to do but I know if I don’t do something about it I might do something worse, and I’m terrified of myself and for the people around me. Anyone have any advice for me? Thank you if you read all of this.

Your parents are in denial. Yet... they’re right. There’s nothing wrong with you. It’s the world that doesn’t seem to understand. Any struggle you go through isn’t your fault. It’s not whats wrong with *you.* It’s whats wrong with the environment you’re trapped in.

While there are healthy and unhealthy ways of coping, and I don’t recommend drugs, whatever way you cope is yours to choose. Just know that each path has consequences.

When you’re upset and push others away, that oftenly means it’s because you don’t want to hurt them. That’s a good sign. You care for your friends, but begin trying to practice healthy coping skills. Try telling THEM how you feel and what you’re going through. And, while you should always look for the bright side I’m situations, never pretend there’s ONLY a bright side. Problems are problems, and there’s isn’t always going to be sunshine, but you should do your best to keep looking for it.

Your parents say that you’re doing it for attention because they didn’t grow up the way you did. Don’t blame them, but don’t listen to them either. Nobody in this world will ever BE you, so they can’t tell you what you’re feeling or doing right and wrong. Even if it WERE for attention, that means that they have failed at their job of caring for you correctly. Still, there’s nothing wrong with you. You’re perfect. You matter. You’re worth more than you know.

i know someone who killed themself. please, please please, dont go down this road. self harm is just like a gateway drug. whoever you are, please tell someone who you KNOW will do something about it. obviously it looks like your parent may not see it as serious. call a hotline for this sort of thing or watch something positive. i understand but were strangers. know that God loves you and you can ALWAYS talk to Him.
