All of my life I have been told to act, dress and speak a certain way and that if I didn't act that way I was dirty or nasty. I'm sick of always being criticised if I am not "perfect". I wish I could find a way to be myself because on the outside I am sweet but on the inside I feel weak and depressed.
I recently started cutting myself to cope with these emotions. I just wish I had a friend who understood but I feel like I am surrounded by selfish and ignorant people. It has been especially hard because I just started going to a new school. Maybe it will get better if I talk to a therapist or something.

I agree with this other person, find something u love doing. I had all the closest friends in yr 12 and then one day they all turned their backs on me. if it wasnt for my love of reading i probably would have self harmed myself. instead i spent my lunch breaks in the library reading and i started singing lessons and joined the school choir. there is always something u can find u like whether it be music, reading, art or sport.
