Why do I do it? I know full well that self harming is a stupid thing to do, yet I can’t stop myself. Nor could I stop myself from carving, not writing, certain names into my arm, chest, and leg. I know what I’m doing is wrong and stupid but I just can’t stop myself. And yet I stop other people from self harming. Why? Because I care more about the well-being of others than that of myself. It wouldn’t bother me if I died. But I don’t want to because of how it would affect other people.
