Okay, so I’ve talked to my mom about this, and of course she doesn’t approve. She thinks that writing on yourself is a kind of self harm. Is that really true? If so, my entire school needs to be hospitalized…
So, now I have another thing to hide. Instead of hiding the marks, now I need to hide the hearts and words I’ve written on my arms. I can’t even try to get over self harm without adults disapproving. Now what?
I’ve tried writing things out, but then when I look back over what I write, it has a major triggering effect. I’ve tried reading, but I never have time to do it. I’ve tried talking to people, but no one ever wants to talk about anything serious or deep or painful. Does anyone have any suggestions?
