While bullying doesn’t cause suicide, a stressful environment and persistent, emotional victimization can increase a person’s risk of suicide. Together, we can create awareness about the dangers of bullying and give emotional support to those who may be contemplating suicide. If you or someone you know is in an emotional distress or suicidal crisis, please call the Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255).
- Don’t be angry at yourself when anxiety/depression flares up. It isn’t your fault and no one blames you and if they do they’re pieces of shit.
- Don’t orbit around your perceived value so much. You’re not the sum total of what you produce.
- Don’t let yourself wonder why people love you. That’s not how it works. There are not stark, individual reasons that a person can enumerate about why they love you. It’s the entire, unique combination of what and who you are.
Man, I’m sorry but are you sure those are really friends who want to have? Cutting is a very serious thing that should never be taken lightly and what they are doing is very uncool.
If you still want to forward the relationship I would suggest showing them that it is not a joke. Have you let them see your cuts/scars? It’s more than just a fad and I’m sure theirs are shallow and superficial, whereas a person who does for a legitimate release would be deeper less exact, it would show more passion than a couple of bic razor marks.
You could show them this blog and let them see that cutting is something that people struggle to hide and bury because they are ashamed and afraid of getting caught, not trying to show them off and fit in.
And honestly I’m sorry if I seem a little harsh, but what they are doing makes me very upset. I don’t know them personally so obviously I’m removing a lot of that emotion that comes with the friendship and I do apologize, but I’m just not sure I wouldn’t be able to keep from slapping the hell out of them the next time they brought it up.
Go to the part where it says ‘TAKE CARE OF WOUNDS’, there you have instructions of what to do. It’s normal that the wound bleeds more when you use a blade, you need to be very careful with that. If you ever need anything, please remember we’re here for you. Take care darling x
Here I posted all the ways I’ve found to cover scars and cuts. I hope one is useful for you. But if that doesn’t happen, you can talk to us again and we’ll think about something else that works. Take care love x
You’re different. You’re special. You’re unique. You’re you.
Remain calm dear. It’s not the end of the world. You’re still recovering nicely people relapse all the time it’s apart of the journey. What I would recommend would be to get an ace bandage and wrap your arm up like you’ve sprained your wrist. It will be a good excuse and will last long enough for them to heal.
Make fried PB&Js. Make sure you use butter instead of cooking oil it’s heavenly. Also try some coffee with it.
Anxiety & Helping Someone Cope.
I didn’t want to make it overwhelming or too long remember, so I kept it to the main points that benefit me greatly when I’m experiencing an attack.
40 million of Americans alone suffer with anxiety; it’s a horrid feeling when you know someone just wants to help you but you cannot even construct a simple sentence at the time, so please share this in hope that it benefits even just 1 person. Muchos love.
Hello love :) I’m so proud of you! I really mean it. Both of us wish you the best of luck! xx But I believe you don’t need it, you have everything you need with you. You’re so much stronger and braver than you can imagine. You just need to prove it to yourself. And you don’t need to thank, that’s why we’re here for. You can come back any time you want. Take care x
