second realapse

I cut again. I told my best friend immediately after and he threatened to burn again because of it. I begged him not to. That really wasn't what I needed right then. I needed my best friend to tell me that everything was going to be ok and to tell me not to let the relapse get me down and to tell me he still loved and believed in me. I stopped texting him after I was just done battling and he texted me after a bit and said he wouldn't do it.... I didn't respond. I don't know where I stand now and I don't know what to say nor do I want to think about it.

you\'re right he shouldve have just talked to you. But he was trying to shock you into not doing it ever again which never works with us. I\'m sorry dude. I\'m here for you if you want to talk.

There is only so much you can do for anyone else.

They have to be able to, at some point, take care of their own issues.

There\'s nothing wrong with this, even if they\'ve quit asking for help.

Everytime we help someone, it feels good, but nevertheless...it takes something out of us emotionally. If we are not doing so well, ourselves, we may or may not be in a position to help someone. You shouldn\'t feel bad, if and when that happens...but do remember that it takes emotional energy to help others in addition to helping yourself.

I hope this helps.
