i feel you. i wonder, what would happen if we lived in a world that encourages us to actually feel our feelings. i mean, feel them from the moment they occur, to the moment they pass through us. the damage from feelings is not acknowledging them. feelings get stuck and cause harm because they feel like some sort of annihilation. but they're just feelings, and they rise and fall. they come and go. crappy feelings are normal. i've heard the adage: the only way out is through. numbness is the deepest part of the brain trying to spare you from unfamiliar territory. but allowing ourselves to feel the feelings makes us aware of the feelings and also to know that they won't kill us. uncomfortable for a while, but temporary. one thing i like to do is ask: what's going on outside my head? listening to what's going on. cars, wind, birds. for just a moment paying attention to what the world is doing outside my thoughts. it's been a refuge. hope this helps

hmmm...you might have a mental problem. you should go see a doctor or a therpist about your mood swings and maybe they can get to the bottom of it and cure it so you can be normal all the time. happiness is different for everyone, but the fact that you feel like cutting is an issue. you shouldn't harm yourself at all. i'm concerned. maybe make a list of things you are thankful for like start a gratitude journal and look at it when you feel depressed. sorry i wasnt much help, but hope i helped. good luck to you.

got yo focus on more things outside of your current sad self. there is more to life than we know and if we give into the comfortable and familiar sadness/empty ness, we are limiting what we could experience try to live healthier have goals, focus in them than on sadness anything is better than falling back into the dumps/crap feelings your efforts will pay off but you have to try and do it gently
