The several griefs of 8th grade

by Anonymous

My middle schools years were never that wonderful. I got bullied and was failing. On top of it all, my grandma died on thanksgiving and my grandpa had died the school year before. Next thing I knew my two Great Uncles were dead. It was so much of a shock one after another. I had no idea how to cope. Over Spring break , while I was worrying about getting into a great high school I started cutting myself. I regret it to this day. Maybe if I were to talk to someone about my feelings it would have never happened. I then started skipping classes and blowing off my grades. It didn't matter to me then. Just last year in the 9th grade I started playing with fire, almost hurt myself. I worried my parents but most of all I was scared of myself. I still cut myself a year later not completely over the loss of my loved ones. Everything happens for a reason, but maybe in the end I'll see the reason. Right now I don't and I just hope I can get over the loss from 2yrs. ago peacefully without the cutting or high school ruining my life. I just want someone to talk to. Hope everyone who has ever cut themselves or have some personal difficulties gets some help, the one thing I never got and regret denying.

I Cut Too
by: Natasha

It is okay to feel sad. I want you to know that I cut too. I try not to but it is very hard. Lean on your parents because that is what helps me. Sorry about your losses.

your still hurt, go seek help

Its not too late to get help. You still have some unresolved things that caused you to cut yourself to begin with. I think that it is good that you told other people to get help but please do what you recommend yourself. I have heard of this but have little professional help for you nor understand it well enough. Go to someone who does...Please.
