Do anything that keeps your kind off things. Do anything that your interested in. Watch TV, find a new show to get into, make a tumblr, talk to friends, blow bubbles, cook something, think of the positive in your life, listen to music, read a book, create something, do any form of art (google ideas or use pinterest), make new friends, sing, go swimming, pet a dog, paint your nails, try on a bunch of clothes, work on some school work, remember why you've held on so long, think of how awesome it is that life is possible, talk to someone about your feelings, write down your feelings and destroy the paper so no one will see it, make your own alternatives list, smile at strangers, make a stranger happy, hugs, do volunteer work, meditate, dance, do something that you've been putting off, clean something, rearrange your room, stay away from negative people, draw on yourself wherever you want cut (with a marker, so you wont get hurt), remember that I care about you, talk to someone on 7Cups, origami, find a new hobby, feed the animals, play a board game, play a game with friends online, name all of your stuffed animals, try to make as many words possible out of your name, write in a journal to keep track of your memories and see if anything tends to trigger you, play with toys (age does not matter when one is playing with a ninja turtle toy), pet animals, go to the animal shelter, animals, play a sport (even if you are not good at it, just have fun), google stuff (but nothing triggering), squeeze a stress ball, figure out why you feel the way you do, make a bucket list, get rid of anything that makes you want to hurt yourself, make sure you have eaten today, take a shower, call a hotline (google numbers and find one that looks right for you), blog, think of how you don't want to have scars the rest of your life, think of everyone that you are hurting, pet animals, play with play dough, google other things to do. Please know that you wont recover from self-harm immediately. It's difficult to overcome, but you can do it. I believe in you. Also, not all of these alternatives will work for you. You have to find one that works best for you. I tried many things to overcome self-harm. It takes time. What helped me the most was thinking of how silly it is to hurt myself on the outside because I'm hurting on the inside. I would walk away and spend some time on the internet. Plus petting animals and blowing bubbles was very helpful. I hope you are able to overcome this quickly. Best of luck and stay strong, darling.
