Hi I'm 17 and I thought I could get some help and support about what I went throught, I'm still confused and depressed, I just wanna stop self harming and I don't wanna feel like it was my fault anymore, I feel sick about my self to think I was sexually abused makes me want to die, please help me , hemi xx
Judith: This is a good place to be. It takes time to heal and it wont happen within three months. Talking and writing and reading and letting the feelings out even when it hurts not self harm will help you get there to be at peace inside.
Some of it comes in change how we think which takes practice.
It is not your fault -the key is to start deciding how you can go about belive that and letting the feelings follow
sometimes we have to fake it till we make it too.
I can understand the feelings but the key is to take the control back from the jerk.
for starters etc. When Feelings Buried Alive Never Die is a good book on this too
