Need to stop self harming
I am female, 24. I am a teacher in a private school. I love my profession but not my job. there are other problems too but the one I seek help for is that i have been self harming for a few months, on and off. I stopped for three months but I recently started again. I know I shouldn't and I understand the consequences, which is why I need to stop. I understand how wrong this is, but it's the only way because of which I feel that I'm in control of my life. I have tried engaging in constructive activities. I took swimming classes for a month, I tried skating, craft work, writing and so on. but when everything gets too much and I feel I would burst with everything that I feel, there's no greater help than the blade. and I instantly feel relieved. and interested in living. I don't want to be an addict of cutting which I'm afraid I'm slowly moving towards. I need help.
