Hi. I am 13 turning 14 next month. I understand that you may be going through a hard time. Maybe you don't know what that is, why you are depressed which IS the reason you are doing this. Try to search deep and figure out what it is whether it be one or multiple things that are bothering you. That is the first step. Second, decide what you want. Say you have been abused for example, you want this to stop. Think of ways you can make this come to an end. Run through each scenario in your head. If it is a personal issue like abuse, talk to a counselor or any adult you can trust. If it is an inside situation in your heart, find a way to fix it, any way you could. Cutting is not the solution! Forget the scars, you are hurting yourself by causing the guilty feeling. To stop the cutting, first do it mentally. Do not cut yourself for real. In your head, feel the release you get from it. THIS IS A START!!! Until you find a new release, do this...but not permanently! Who knows, it could be anything from sports to knitting to making videos on youtube. Occupy your mind-no cutting!
I know things have caused you to the breaking point, you say 'to escape' like your life is a hell on earth. No matter, remember you have a reason to be here and that you can give so much to the world. DON'T LOWER YOURSELF IN YOUR MIND AND OTHERS BY CAUSING THE GUILT YOU GET FROM "RELIEVING YOURSELF".
