Help I'm having such strong urges to self injure myself. I skipped a class in school and am feeling so guilty about it. I'm having difficulty going to school and sitting through class and have been skipping a lot of class lately. Also something is bothering me and I can't figure out what. I'm so confused!!!!!!! I don't make any sense I know. Sorry

Sometimes you need to run away just to see who will follow you.

Sometimes when I say "I'm okay", I want someone to look me in the eyes, hug me tight and say "I know you are not".

Just because I'm smiling doesn't mean I'm happy.

Toy, try to think about the obstacles you've overcome to get to the point you're at right now. You've come so far; it's probably been a long time since you've self-injured - why go back there? It may be tempting in the moment of doubt and confusion, but it's not worth it... Definitely not for feeling guilty or confused, definitely not for skipping class, in fact definitely not for ANYTHING!
I know this is not really the same thing, but with me, my eating disorder often "steps in" at moments of confusion. When I'm feeling somewhat down and vulnerable, and not sure what I'm feeling.... It'll just step in (or try to at least) to solve everything. Or pretend to solve everything. The problem is, it doesn't work. It just makes many, many more problems. And I'm sure it's similar with self-injury. It's a natural turn-to when you're feeling just about anything. It kind of says to you that it'll solve your problems, make things easier... But it doesn't work that way. It just makes things so much more difficult.
I know at this point you're so much stronger than you've been, so you probably resisted the urge. But keep on being strong. You can do it. And keep writing if you need to.
