Unless You Know What It's Like To Wake Up In The Middle Of The Night With The Thought Of Kissing Razors, Do Not Judge Someone Who Self Harms

Self harm really just isn’t understood. Some people think we want to self harm, think we want to die, think we have no hope in us.
Self harm is just like when you get the urge to lust, it’s just like when you get the urge to smoke (I don’t smoke but I understand what it’s like), or to have a drink/snack that you told yourself you aren’t going to have.

What ever it is, it all can be explained the same way as cutting.

Do you really think we want to do it? Do you really think we mean to do it?
No! It’s the urges. It’s easy enough to say “calm down and find another way to release your pain/anger”, but if you don’t suffer with having to fight with urges to cut each and every time you are angry/upset, then you just do not realise how tough it can get.I’m certain a lot of you Lust, and I don’t mean to be personal but have you ever tried to not lust? It’s hard because the urges, it’s a battle. Same goes for battling cutting urges, and when you are also fighting with your emotions, it just gets so much tougher.We don’t mean to cut, we don’t want to cut, but then the urges sometimes are just too much to handle.

If you’re a Muslim or Christian or what, cutting doesn’t mean you don’t have faith, it doesn’t mean you don’t believe, it doesn’t even mean you don’t believe in yourself.

Yea, self harming is a Sin, just like lusting is, just like drinking is and smoking is and taking drugs is, but remember, Jesus is forgiveness, him and God are loving, they aren’t gonna punish you for being falling down at times.

It’s ok to fall down sometimes, but it’s whether you are trying or not.
You may say that if you resort to self harming, you aren’t trying, but if you think like that, give this a second read, and maybe you’ll realise why I said we fall to self harming.

Stay strong to anyone that is struggling with any kind of urges, and just be determined to stay trying. Like I always say, it’s ok to cry yourself to sleep, but wake up smiling.
