Cutting

Cutting

 I used to cut a lot. I’ve cut it down, but it is still a problem. 

CONSIDER THIS:

  • Life is very tough and everyone goes through many times in life where they feel distressed and sometimes, unfortunately, use self-harm as a coping mechanism. You are not alone in what you are going through. 
  • If at any point, you start to contemplate suicide please call CHILDHELP USA at 1-800-442-4453. There are professional counselors there that will listen to what you have to say, the call is also available 24/7, it’s confidential and it’s toll-free. 
  • Life is tough for everyone and sometimes talking to a counselor, therapist, or a trusted adult, can help you sort through your problems and help you deal with difficult situations in life.
  • Write in a journal to help you identify your triggers for cutting and try to talk yourself to a solution. Instead of cutting, turn to your journal to write when you’re happy, sad or upset. 

HELP YOURSELF 

  • What triggers the cutting? 
  • How have you managed to cut down cutting, and how can you continue to cut it down? 
  • How can you stop cutting all together? 
  • What can you learn from challenges you are facing?
