****trigger warning**** I feel like I've never been treated

[2515]

****trigger warning**** I feel like I've never been treated right, people always treat me like s**t. There is a woman at work who always takes her frustration and anger on me. Whenever she's in bad mood, she always sort of yells at me, but not other people. Everyone is on her side and there is not much I can do. The job pays decent and I'm not qualified for any other professions at this moment. Honestly, I have no idea what's wrong with me. Self harm is the only way to release my negative emotions and I don't know how to stop this. I just want to stay in my room and keep cutting until I run out of place to cut. Sorry, I just needed to let my emotions out.

My Faith helps me a great deal. Looks like a lot of the other posters gave you some really good ideas, all which can be very helpful. But these things for me were only a temporary distraction. I needed something more than a distraction. I needed to to be rid of it which mean I had to also focus not necessarily on self harm but rather the things that were triggering. That's where my faith and therapy comes into play for me. The more I deal with the root cause the more I am able to resist the urge to comfort myself with self-harm and rather turn to better more healthy and effective things to give my heart and mind the peace I need.
