This will sound hypocritical of me (hey, cutters unite), but you shouldn't cut. It's unhealthy, I guess.

I do quite love this poem, though. It makes me.. want to... /: *fave*

Alot of the times when I read you work I wonder what would I do if I was in your situation. It helps me think clearly about how I would handle myself and if the going rate about how I take care of myself is effective or not. And most importantly, how am I treating others and if they feel safe and secure around me.

I think a part of helping someone is letting them gradually realize that they must find solace in a friend that's more valuable than any other friend they'll ever find in their existence. This kind of friend is imperative to consider because without him or her everything will be blue or crazy even when things outside of them are in fact, not. Can you guess who this person is? You're right, yourself.

It sounds fluffy and pre-k but it really is true. Trully, anyone you find comfort in is going to help you and you'll probably feel better. I know you will because you know they care and they love you like you love them. It's hard to always love yourself, and I don't mean love yourself always. Alot of people when they try to adopt new methods of living take things to extreme, and if they don't get it perfect it's just not going to work. Learning is a gradual process, and mistakes and failures are your friends. You are in good hands :)

It's like I mentioned to you a long time ago about the things you already have. Remember?

I'm a loner but I find solace in meditation, and the philosophy of buddhism. You don't have to become a buddhist in order to meditate, but it's something I would suggest you could try. All you need is yourself, a quiet place, and a few tips you can most certainly find on the internet.

Again, all this seems very simple. The whole concept that happiness is within. Well whatever, that doesn't make me feel better now does it? Like I said, it's a gradual process.

Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming as Dorri in Finding Nemo said.

Peace,

Interesting format. You can almost feel the mounting desperation. Actually, it might be more effective if you spaced out "i need to cut" for the first few lines and then started running the words together. Well done, and I hope things worked out all right..

No you dont! I'm 100% positive you have friends that can help, pain is a part of life, you don't need to cut everytime you feel it. I hope things are better soon! no cutting. Ever need to talk. PM me _

The feeling of helplessness I get when I read this is so familiar. The repetition really drives the desperation home...it makes me so sad to see the feeling captured in words. The urgency and aching get to me.

I hope things get better soon - I'm sure they will.

Tell me what happened?

Please?

Don't do anything you'd regret.
