I need input about telling loved ones about self-harm/self-harm scars. Did it generally make you feel better/worse? Keeping it a secret for literally 8 years or so has been so toxic but I also feel so, so scared to share it. And keeping it secret has stopped me from being in a relationship because I don’t want to be seen as crazy or unstable or have someone stop being attracted to me once they see the scars. Also, I wanted to wait to share it with family until I could say it was long behind me but since I’ve had some recent relapses, I can’t do that. General reactions to it? Was it worth it to not harbor this awful secret any longer or was it not worth it?
