i dont deserve to get praised at work and if i feel proud of anything i get praised for i should hurt myself for daring to feel proud of getting praised.

I know how you feel Ive had s good day and felt like I needed to SH because I don't deserve to be so happy .... But I've fought the urge because maybe I do deserve some happiness... And I think you do too xx

I think one of the reasons we self harm is because of low self esteem so we find it difficult when we receive praise and need to punish ourselves. I think we need some form of confidence building
I do hope both midnight and UH can begin to think higher of yourselves because you deserve it
