Can someone please tell me why it’s so hard to eat one cupcake after eating NOTHING else for the entire day? oh yeah that’s right …..society
First off, tell your friend how you feel. Tell them that you need some support too and that friendship has to be a two way street. The relationship that you now have with your best friend sounds like it’s only benefiting one party when it should benefit two.
I’ve had this issue with my best friend and it got so bad that I thought our friendship was over. We literally had not spoken to each other at all in months until I could’t take it anymore and called her. I asked her where our friendship stood and whether or not she still valued it. I was depressed, self harming and restricting and I felt like I had no one at all to depend on.
We talked it out and after a few tears were shed and apologies exchanged where they needed to be things got better. I know that she supports me (and my recovery) and I now know that the reason she wasn’t really talking to me is because she was dealing with the same things I was and just didn’t know how to handle me talking about my issues when she hadn’t dealt with hers.
You are NOT alone! Trust me on that and know that you can always find the support you need to recover. Talk to your friend…be straight forward and don’t hold back. If that doesn’t work out then it is okay…there is always someone that you can rely on, someone that you can trust. Things will get better for you…everything takes time.
STAY STRONG…Don’t let this situation get the best of you.
Stay strong and choose recovery!
I need you to stop right now and fast forward into the future. With self harming at your side, I promise you it will be miserable!
Yes you will be hurting yourself but what about the people that care about you? You’ll find that friends disappear and your own guilt won’t allow you to socialize normally with your family or anyone eventually. THINK ABOUT THIS
That moment of relief after cutting, you’ll find is very short lived. Then comes the overwhelming feeling of self pity and shame. You’ll feel unlovable and will push ANYONE that truly cares away from you because you’re too disgusted with yourself and you’ll hate the fact that you know you’ll only hurt them with your addiction. THINK ABOUT THIS
How would you like getting married with scars trailing up your arms for everyone to see? Because that is likely to happen if you do not stop right now and wind up getting sucked into a world of self harm that might feel like an escape to you but really is your demise. THINK ABOUT THIS
I need you to look at what you call “pathetically small” cuts and realize that they can kill you!
I need you to look at those cuts and REGRET IT! Regret it and never do that yourself again because YOU ARE WORTH SO MUCH MORE!
Someone as beautiful as you are and as full of potential as you are should never EVER allow your worth to be diminished by a cold lifeless piece of metal!
How can you stop on your own before it gets bad?
LOVE YOURSELF!! Each time you even think about it…remember who you are! A BEAUTIFUL HUMAN BEING THAT GOD CREATED AND LOVES!
Make it a point to find someone you trust…anyone that you know truly cares…and talk to them about whatever it is that makes you want to cut! I promise you this will help. Also, whenever you have the urge, just do something you love, listen to music, watch a movie or sleep..Anything that takes your mind off of it.
STAY STRONG …I know you’ll make it. You give me hope.
Being stuck between an endless life of restricting and simply eating can be the hardest thing to overcome but in the face of a challenge I will stand strong!!!
My goal to be healthy…and the saying, “Nothing tastes better that skinny feels…”
IS A LIE!!
Your message has officially made my day. I try just like everyone else but it would be so much harder without any support. Thank you for supporting and believing in me!
