How do you stop yourself from self harming?
Get help from a professional..That's the best way. You can try to do other things when you feel you may hurt yourself to keep your mind off of whatever is causing you to do this...like running, working out, writing go outside, paint, ride a bike, bake a cake, go for a walk with your ipod, sit by the lake, draw what you see in the park. ..etc.
It's very difficult, you just need a lot of support and lots of things to take your mind off it.
If nothing seems to help see a psychiatrist.
Great support lines:
No. Self respect is clearly respecting yourself, being kind to yourself, loving yourself and taking care of yourself. Self esteem is how you feel about yourself. For example: if you have low self esteem you don't really think you're pretty or attractive, you might not dress very nicely and you think you're ugly. You can have no self esteem but still have self respect by not harming yourself, etc...
well, without telling ANYONE might be hard but in general, if you already know you have to stop, and want to stop, that is the first step. but try slowly weaning yourself off of it, using a rubber band, and generally distracting yourself when you feel the need. you never know, you might acquire a new skill, and save your life :)
Any form of self-destructing act is not only harmful to the inflicter but it effects anyone who may care about them. Therefore, your parents may feel as though this self harming may be resulting from bad parenting or that they are concerned simply for your well-being and therefore it upsets them when you are causing physical and even mental harm to yourself as it is difficult for a parent to see this destructive act and…
A vaccine can stop a person from catching a disease because when you have a vaccination, it injects dead cells of that disease and therefore you body has made antibodies to defend yourself if you do catch it. it does not stop you from catching it 100% because you could still catch it but there is little chance of it harming you or harming you as much. x

Both suicide and self-harming are ways that people deal with anxiety and depression. They are not healthy ways of dealing. Suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem. Speaking as someone who has been at the point of trying it, I can assure you that you will look back and wonder why you were so upset, if only you hang on and don't kill yourself. The best way to deal with this sort of…
Why would you want to bully your self? If you are talking about self harming or inflicting pain on your self, then I'd advise you talk to a close friend or a trusted adult, or me, if you want. Self harming is a terrible thing to do, I know, I've been there. But if you stop, it can really make you feel so much better about your self. And if you are thinking of making…
Is mutilating yourself and other severe self-harm like an addiction and if so how can you stop it for good?
There is no one answer as this is a matter of overall protection concerns normally with preparation and dealing with structural failure of a building resulting in a collapse, crushing those within.

Yes. There are emos that self harm, however, not all self harmers are emo. Self harmers are not greatly prone to any specific appearance of person, however emos are given the strong stereotype that, if they are emo, they MUST be self harming. This is not true. The class smarty, the popular guy on the football team, the emo chick in the corner, the average in-style guy... They can all be self harmers.
It may be a sign. Anyone who is self harming needs to talk to their doctor or trusted health professional right away because it is very unsafe. Someone who self harms could bleed out, get a serious infection that could be worse than the feelings that they're feeling when the feel the need to self harm. Good Luck!!
It's definitely wrong to self harm. You obviously have a reason to do so which is making you want to self harm but you shouldn't do that. I've been self harming for 4 months now and I do it about once a week. I wish I'd never started though, if I could go back and change my mind, I would. Although it feels good straight afterwards, the high never lasts long enough and if you…
cyber bullying is wrong because its not right to make people feel bad for self amusement it makes people feel unwanted and the need to cause self harming things to there self's. people then tend to not want to be their friend and think they are very weak and can't look after themselves.
