Anonymous asked: you ranted about how you hate that self harmers say that cant stop, just because some people can stop, doesnt mean its the same for everyone . *i know from experience. clearly you understand right ?
actually everyone can stop and will stop sooner or later. the only reason people wouldn’t be able to is because they keep telling themselves they can’t. they only way it can work is to tell yourself you’re stronger than that and you’re better than that. to fight the urge fight with every last bit of you. i understand why people say you can’t because i said it for 9 years i said it for the longest time but i finally started telling myself i didnt have to that i was better than that. and you know it works it does help it makes a difference in your recovery because if you dont believe in yourself nothing is possible.
