If you have a friend you can really trust, and you think it would support you no matter what, then you could tell them, but do it only if you think it would be better for you.

Your best bet is to tell one of your friends you don't mind losing. This may sound crazy, but if you tell your best friend, he may think your crazy (you're not) and leave. Also, you could do what Jordan said and tell a friend you know will support you no matter what (unless that is cutting of course) This is just what I think. Remember, you don't have to tell anyone (I get EXTREMELY panicked and scared because I think I have to tell people I'm bisexual, then I remember, I dont have to tell anyone.) it's still your choice. But, it's better to get it out.

Don't tell your parents. I told mine and they freaked out and put me in a suicide ward. Not a fun experience. It just made me more depressed. And want to cut more

YES you need to tell an adult in your life you may think u can handle it but trust me very few ppl are able to and they happened to get out of it before I met them tell your parents they may yell at you or they may not but if they do it's because they care multiple of my friends cut and 2 have been clean for awhile one hasn't done it in 2 years you may think it helps but trust me it won't it will only leave more scars u may think u can't stop but u can trust me it will be hard but it's possible and it will be so much easier if u tell somebody trust me I've never cut personally it just hasn't entered my mind but yet I've been bullied for 8 years and I'm sorta ok it's not really over tho will I have some emotional scars yes but I will be ok and so will u u may not be happy all the time but I'm happy whenever I'm with friends (with a few exceptions)

thank you
You should be very very VERY careful about who you tell. I only told 2 people ever. And they both turned their backs on me and told a whole bunch of other people including adults. It was a mess. Please have someone you can really really trust not to turn their backs. And if you tell them though it helps you feel better.

If you need someone to talk to I'm here.
If you need a shoulder to cry on I'm here.

If the person truly loves and cares for you, then they'll accept you! If you need to talk to anyone, you can feel free to message me!
