I havent self harmed for a few months but i have so many scars and recently I came across this photo with a ton of wounds and part of me started craving it again, like some weird part of me felt it was beautiful and then it gets so hard to break out of that trance. Sometimes I just stare at all my scars and I don't know how to feel. I get so mad cause it seems like anytime I show emotion, people are turned away or get frustrated with me for still dealing with depression. It's like we have to put on a fake face all the time and any time someone breaks, it's out of the norm and too much to handle. I don't know. A lot of days i feel like I can't be myself.

:welcome: to the forum. Please stop self harming. That can cause infection and amputation. I hope you feel better. :hug:
