I get so frustrated at times where the only way to make it better is to hit my leg, usually causing a bruise. Is there a name for this or a way to fix it?
Self-abuse and Frustration
I don't think it is a good idea because if you start hitting yourself you might go farther. It can lead to cutting or worse. I'd try talking to someone and intead of hitting yourself, write down your feelings. This can sometimes make you feel better and it is better than hitting yourself. Good Luck!
i do that sometimes, especially now that i dont self harm, i really dont ever want to go back to a knife and sometimes when im really angry i do that. but i do it less and less now, yeh ^^ i kinda kept a diary when i was in a state of depression and shit like that, it did help but now when i look back its so cringe worthy but yeh try it out
why do you hit yourself? depression or something recent?
take care x
