No not at all! and don't let anyone tell you that it is wrong because its not.. people self harm because they are troubled and harming themselves brings them relief and a sense of reality. Generally a self harmer feel very guilty a few hours after harming themselves for no known reason but that does not mean it is wrong.

i hope i helped :) x

^I think I'm somewhat understanding what you're trying to say, then again, you could be in a whole other ball park.

Self-Harm is wrong, as in, it's bad for you and you shouldn't do it. However, it's not something to be made fun of and people who self-harm should not be called names. It's a very serious problem. I dealt with it before, and it's not something you want to pick up.

So yes, Self-Harm IS wrong.

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 cut yourself every time you felt low again, you'd probably die from blood loss.

What I'm saying is, self harming is wrong and you should see a counsellor or talk to your friends/family.

If you don't want to talk to anyone, you could find another release other than self harming, such as exercise or a hobby. I find that a nearly ice cold bath does the trick and gets you back to reality and realisation that you shouldn't self harm.

I can tell you from expierence they can be. Self harm isn't good in the first place but you need to make sure you take proper care of the cuts. When I was in high school mine got infected and led to a long hospital stay.

No. Never harm yourself, and especially don't consider suicide.

Self-harm also indirectly hurts friends and family.
