I recently found out my best friend has been cutting herself. I confronted her and asked her to get some professional help and she has refused. She is painfully shy, has low self-esteem, and is torn over her sexual orientation. Her family would, literally, disown her if they knew. I have tried to lift her up and show her how wonderful she truly is, she is just not in a place where she can see it. I am afraid. I do not know what to do. She has refused professional help, are there any books or research that you know about that I can read up on and try and help, not hurt the situation? I just feel so helpless because I know this is something that she has to do on her own. I just want to make sure that I do not make the situation worse.
