For many years I had a girlfriend who self harmed. Self harm is a complicated subject and there are many reasons why people do it and I've never quite understood it. I always told her it was silly and stupid that she would cut herself over something which could be emotionally understood and rational..

Tonight for the first time I think understand why she used to do it. People set people off in different ways but its is the burning that you feel inside because what they have done is all wrong and the only way you can get rid of the anger is to cut it out of your skin and in the incision they is a release. Nothing is going to help, no emotional talk through no sit down and a cup of tea and we can make it alright its only that razor against your skin. Never suicidal but just enough to let the pain away.

To her I say sorry I now see you pain, hope your happier now.Love kev
