I self-harm and I want to stop completely. I try to use my positive coping skills, but everything gets messed up and I don't know why. Any suggestions?
This may help:
Get counseling asap
Wear rubber bands on your wrists and pull them hard whenever you get the urge. It better than injuring yourself even further.
Glad to hear you have a therapist, that is very important. I used to cut, so I understand where you are coming from, but everyone has their own inner reasons so I won't tell you that I understand your reasons, just that I get it.The one most important thing that helps me is to know that cutting is a way to release frustration and anger, but it doesn't really solve or help anything. So I can then get past that and look to connect with people, get out or just do something constructive. It all has to do with you figuring out what you can connect with.Just remember that you are not alone, you can always reach out to others.
