Seeking help for self-harm is extremely important to your well-being and living a happy, healthy life. If you don’t seek help, there could be tragic consequences. The longer you let the problem go, the more serious the problem gets. Self-harm always starts out as “scratches” and “one cut here and there,” but the longer the problem continues, it turns into deep cuts and cutting all the time because you begin to crave and need it more. Also, with cutting deeper, the risk for an accidental suicide increases. Self-harm is a serious problem and it needs to be dealt with by a medical professional that knows how to fix the issue. Seeking help is an IMPORTANT part to recovery. It’s okay to ask for help. Usually there is an underlying issue causing the self-harm that needs to be dealt with, and by seeking professional help, you can figure out exactly what that problem is, and get treatment for it. Until the cause of your self harm is found, the problem will continue. Therefore, if you are struggling with self harm, I urge you to go seek professional help for it so you can live the life you have always dreamed of. No one deserves to live a life hurting themselves just to get through the day. You are worthy of recovery. Believe that, and you’ll go far.
