Anonymous said: I've known this guy for just about a year now and he and I got very close and everyone thinks we're dating, he just found out that I self harm and he's making a big deal about it and I'd rather he did'nt. I really care for him and I really don't want him to look at me differently because of that and he barely talks to me because of it and I really don't want to lose him as a friend. he said he'd talk again if I promised not to do it anymore but I have urges to do it all the time, please help.
I’ve been in a similar situation, but not exactly, but close enough to say the least. Obviously this guy cares about you, and honestly? There’s not much more too it than - Which do you want more the razor blade/lighter or him? Don’t go hiding it from him/lying about it, because if he finds out he’ll be done with you. Just slowly ease out of self-harming, for your friendship and your own sake. I know it’s hard, but it’ll be okay, the urge may always be there, but find something that takes your mind off from it.

Probably not. If he continues to make you cry, what kind of friendship is that? You don’t deserve that, no one does.
