Hey @Jesssister2001 first up, I am genuinely super sorry that your Mother minimised your pain like that. I want you to know that is not okay - and just because she is your parent does not make this viewpoint valid. That would be incredibly painful to hear, not just for you, for anyone - compassion is what you need not judgement, we want to let you know that we care and there's nothing wrong with you.
Many of us have had non-supportive parents, I know it is hard but it makes for the most strong and resilient individuals this I promise you, you're not alone here . Can I ask, do you have anyone else you trust, who you would feel safe talking to about your self-harm?
Hey @Jesssister2001, just to follow up. We really think you deserve some professional and compassionate support around this issue. Would you consider logging on with our friends at SCBS? It is completely confidential, you can just open up another tab in your browser and queue here to chat with a counsellor. They're really good, make sure you let them know what happened today - you deserve support.
@Jesssister2001 i just want to say how proud i am for you to open up to your mum, that must have been really hard. im really sorry about her reaction - she has no right to minimise your pain. ive seen you giving so much care to others and being so strong, so remember you’re a strong human being are you interested to talk to a helpline about this to give you further steps or even a trusted person ?
