Anonymous said: I regret that I have to hide my scars/marks. I wish I could just own them and be proud, but I can't have anyone (read: adults) finding out about them.

If you are self-harming/have a problem with self-harm you do need to tell an adult. I’m sorry that’s probably not what you want to hear. But it’s true. I was pissed when my friends turned me into the guidance counselor in middle school about my cutting addiction, but without them doing that I might never have gotten the help I needed. Tell an adult and get the help you need. Otherwise, I hope someone who cares about you tells an adult on your behalf.
