someone about everything that is weighing on their heart and mind.
Some people need someone to help them figure out how to deal or fix
issues in their life.
Consider creating a
SECRET BOX filled with potential escapes.
What things make you
smile? You can place someone’s phone number within the box, pictures
of your favorite memories, your favorite uplifting CD, a book that
always makes you laugh, a funny movie … Anything that helps YOU feel
better. This box is used when you are struggling. You open it and
it gives you options instead of running to harm yourself.
Here is another idea
If you are into the
"physical pain relieving the emotional pain" ideology, this idea
might work for you. It gives the sensation of physical pain holding
it in your hand or rubbing it on your skin, but it does not leave
scars, blood and it doesn’t actually hurt you or anyone in your life
as you overcome the addiction of Self Harm.
Again, like the last

while, email us so we can make our list even longer and help even
more people that are struggling.
