Haha don't do that ^^ I think you need to tell your parents already. They can help you.
Here's my siggy!
I am a parent. Lots of you guys don't know that because I seem quite young but I was a teen Mom, long before I ever became a Pastor, my daughter is 14 now.. so roughly the same age as a lot of you. I also work with young people that are NOW recovered self harmers. It was one of the hardest things they have ever had to do. It it might be one of the hardest things YOU ever have to do too.
I would love for you to consider talking to your Mom & Dad. Do you all live together?
Be honest, be open and tell them you are scared and want help. As some of the above people posted they might get mad, but fear is what usually what makes a parent mad. They will be scared.
After you tell them ask them to help you. Tell them you need love, support and accountability. Because we self harmers are tricky, it's sometimes nice to know that there is someone that will check in with us.
Do some reading together, have once a week family meetings to talk. Openly about what's going on in your life. If your parents aren't talkers - ask them to help you find someone that is.
Feel free to message me here, it's a tough place to be when you begin cutting but you have made the first step to your own recovery!! Very proud of you. Talk to your parents. Good luck!
Plan 2: Tell one of your family members or closest best friends and have them tell their parents to tell your parents if you don't want to tell them directly in front of their faces
Plan 3: If none of these plans work for you the only choices you have left are to call the child hotline (they're more than just for kids) or to continue to suffer
I never experienced cutting myself so these might not be accurate but i really hope these work
Also if you're christan think what would jesus do before you start to cut yourself
Last thing (sorry) take your mind off what's bothering you ask if you could take an art class or try cooking
