I'm so depressed. I really want to hurt myself. I deserve to be punished.

Sorry you're so depressed. What makes you feel you deserve to be punished?

Sorry you feel this way. No matter what you may be feeling, you don’t deserve to be punished.

I’ve been in that mindset myself, nothing could convince me otherwise but I didn’t deserve it and nor do you. :hug1:

I feel like I deserve it. Because my family said I was bad.

Just because they said it doesn't mean it's true.

When did they say that? When you were a child?

I’m sure you dont deserve to be punished. As Sunnydaze says just cos they say it doesnt make it true. Do you still live at home with your family

sorry you are suffering. much love and hugs to you!

as for the feeling like you deserve to SH, nobody deserves this. Even if you were bad, you don't deserve this.
