    Fragile

    Iím fragile.

    Iím so fragile that sometimes I hurt myself on purpose. I cut my hands open like they were in a need of a surgery when in reality theyíre not. I like the pain the cuts make; I like the way the blood tribbles out of the wounds and runs down my arms; somehow it makes me feel safe again. Hurting myself makes me feel safer and calmer.

    Iím so fragile that I cry myself to sleep and hope to never wake up again. I cry in the shower and I cry in my room when my parents are in the living room watching TV-shows thinking Iím okay. They should think again because Iím way less than okay, Iím sinking and drowning into my own sadness but they donít see it. I donít want them to see it, they would only make it worse.

    Iím so fragile that I stay awake until itís light again so I wont dream about that certain someone or about things I canít never have.

    Iím so fragile that I smile and laugh as if I was the happiest human on Earth. They donít know that I hurt myself, cry everytime Iím alone, feel like I want to die. They donít know and they wont know because I plan to stay fake-smiling and laughing as long as they believe it.

    I'm sorry to hear this. Here's what WebMD says: "When teens feel sad, distressed, anxious, or confused, the emotions might be so extreme that they lead to acts of self-injury (also called cutting, self-mutilation, or self-harm). Most teens who inflict injury on themselves do so because they are experiencing stress and anxiety."

    You can read more here: .

    You should realize that a lot of girls cut and that it's a coping mechanism. It actually works for a little while. But it's not a solution. You are experiencing real stress and anxiety.

    A lot of adults may misunderstand why you cut. You probably need to talk to someone at school who understands this and can talk you through this. They would try to find out the cause of your stress. Are you being bullied by someone? Are you being abused, either physically or mentally. Is a teacher assigning too much homework? Are you just not good in a certain subject (I still don't get trigonometry or why I had to study it)? Are your parents putting too much pressure on you?

    Cutting can lead to more serious things, like drinking, drugs, abusive relationships, even suicide, so you should find someone to talk to. Since it's summer, maybe you can get out of the house, go sit on a beach or somewhere in the sun (that makes you feel good too) stay at grandma's or someone who loves you until school starts. There should be someone in school who can usually help. But if you can't hang on that long, see if there's a teen center or family community center in your town.

    I used to feel kinda the same way when I was a teenager, dear Awkward. If you feel like you need to talk to someone I'm here.
