hi there! first of all, let me congratulate you for coming forward. you need a lot of courage to come clean about cutting and other kinds of self-harm. you're a really brave person for deciding to tell your parents. now, i understand how difficult it must be for you to tell them, despite your intentions. if you feel you're ready to tell them, but you don't know how to do it, i'd recommend talking to a school counselor first, or some kind of professional, and then they could walk you through it. talking to a health professional first might give you the lucidity you need to approach the issue with your parents. it can also provide you the tools to understand how to cope from now on. from what i saw in the comments, you're currently trying to deal with your emotions in a harmful way, simply because they seem really messy. talking with someone first could be of great help. don't forget, we're here for you. good luck, i hope it all goes well!
