    Hello, I'm Michele

    I joined this forum with the intent to get way from the biased opinions of my family and friends. I feel like the help that I need should come from people I do not know who can provide me with unbiased opinions and advice. Receiving those things from someone on the outside will provide me with...

    I'm hurting myself

    You don't sound 14. Anyway, you don't self harm because of a girl. You don't get her to stop smoking by hurting yourself and letting her see it. There's no logic in what you are doing.

    Plan without purpose

    So I'm new to the forum. Not what you would expect. I found purpose in the last place I expected to find it. I won't tell you what that is, because everyone has that "thing" If it weren't for that "thing" I wouldn't be around to talk about it. You know what the "thing" is. Fuck the rest of...

    Name at least three random things you like about yourself.

    1. I laugh way too hard at things that aren't that funny. 2. I enjoy people with strong opinions, regardless of whether they align with mine. 3. My natural hair texture.

    Is there something like "loving the pain"?

    Some people try not to be sad. For example her pet dies and she tries to run away from the pain. Not looking at her photos, not watching her videos, tries to make her mind busy with other things. My mom is able to do this. To some degree. She says that "when sad things come to my mind I banish...
