I've performing self harm. But I'm not cutting myself. I'm straining my muscles, pulling my hair, banging my head on doors. So if you have any advice, please help me.

That reminds me of when I was younger. Whenever I was mad, angry, or frustrated, I would bang my head against a wall...hard.

I personally think that the main step is to tell someone as they can help support you through this hard time, for example by telling family or friends they can seek professional help to prevent this and remove the pressure from around you. By telling school they can give you lenience and someone to confide in privately. Counselling can also do this and can find the darker cause of this problem for you individually which can give so much support and make you feel yourself again.

Do just like what I do dude, write songs. Or make up stories until you feel better.

But last week, I actually did try to cut myself. Good thing the blade was dull.

The best way to keep from harming yourself... Think about the good things... Those who DO love you... The smiles you put on their faces... The compliments... Each time they wanted to hang out or spend time with you...

My dad had a talk with me about suicide. He reminded me these things. He tried suicide, thinking he'd never get to see me again. He's happy that he never succeeded. He got to see me in the end. To this day, I'm living with him.
