I can’t manage to feel like this evry second if evry day, so I self harm and I hate it I have scars and pepile look and juge me and I feel uncomfortably guilty afterwards and I don’t know what to do anymore and I can’t ask for help from my family because we are already so broken I don’t want to make anything worse and there all stressed taking care of my dad (he is verry sick) and when I don’t self harm I do stupid things the other night I went to my friends house and we took her parents vodka and I drank quite a lot and we ended up kissing (even though u don’t feel Like that way for her) and then the next morning we didn’t talk and then the day after she sent me all these photos of these boys she wants to date trying to prove that she’s not gay to me and it just hurts because now I can’t talk to her and she was the only person I could talk to, to calm me down after self harming but now she’s gone and my dads sick and the only thing that’s stoping me from killing my self is my sister.
