    Please keep in mind that most people like you self-harm as a way to let out bottled up feelings. There are more effective ways to deal with your feelings instead of self-medicating with self-harm. Feelings don't just go away, you may be able to ignore them or push them down but sooner or later they will surface. You're the one who gets to decide how you will deal with them; the goal is to use more positive coping skills.

    Additionally, check out the following 99 coping skills, which can help you to refocus your thoughts on positive things:

    One thing we suggest is that when you have an urge to scratch on yourself, just pause for a moment. By pausing you are taking some personal accountability, and then take that moment to engage in a positive activity. Positive coping skills include writing in a journal, talking with someone, drawing, exercising, reading, or watching TV/movie. That way you have all the control. Take Care KO, Counselor
