Self harm isn't the answer. Sometimes people self-harm as a way of projecting. When you feel like you can't hurt the person back like they did you, you settle for self harming yourself. Letting out those emotions on your ownself. It may serve the purpose few times but it doesn't work in the long time. You still need to work on the actual problem. You need to face the emotions and not project them on your own self. That's why you don't feel better anymore. If you need help or want to talk about it please talk to a listener it will help youalot.
