Trying to stop self harm



New member
Apr 18, 2020
Hello. English isn't my native language so please be understanding. I'm trying to stop self harm. I haven't done it over a month. We're planning to have a child with my partner in the next year or the following year. My partner knows about my self harm and supports me in quitting. I don't want to self harm anymore but still I kinda do. I miss self harm and sometimes it's hard to be without it.

I want to self harm myself now and it's so hard not to do it. I have many great people in my life, which I'm thankful. I'm healthy and I'm in high school, which I'm grateful, too. I have bad memories and complicated relationships with my parents. So complicated that if/when I'm having a child I won't let them be with her/him because they wouldn't do any good. Our (my partner and me) financial situation is tough and we have other worries. I'm just trying not to hurt myself anymore...

Thank you for reading this.

It seems your financial life is the issue of your stress. I urge you to speak to your bank they have money advisers. There are different kinds of help out there. Suicide is not the way, it never is.
