Now that summer is coming I’m going to have to start wearing short sleeves so at one point I’m either going to have to tell my parents or they will find out about the scars that I have made on my wrist. I want to tell them that I have been doing it to myself but I don’t know how to tell them, and when I do tell them they are going to tell my whole family. And if my whole family find out they are going to start asking me questions all the time, and watching everything I do. It will make me even more suicidal because then it’s like I’m a kid again, I can do things on my own, if I need your help I will ask but for my scars on my wrist I’m not asking for help, I’m asking you to let me be. I’m pretty sure they would rather see the cuts on my wrist everyday other than never seeing me again. If they want me to be alive they have to let me cut myself, the cutting really helps me.
So here is my question for you, how should I tell my parents about this without everything becoming extremely serious?
