Giving up s.i. is giving up a way of life i’ve always known.
I have good reasons (i think) for giving it up. I used to do it because i thought i was somehow doing other people a favor by hurting myself. Some friends convinced me that was false, and so i decided to give it up.
I’m finding i can resist the urge but it doesn’t lessen.
Sometimes i think other people have this built in sense of entitlement or being “worth something” that i lack.

Sorry folks, i just felt the need to vent again…
