    the only person who you can tell where any good will come of it, in my opinion and experience is a councillor, unless you have people who can help you through your hard times.
    i used to self harm as a teenager but i had no supportive networks or people who would help, if i told them they would accuse me of attention seeking or just disregard the face or w.e

    If it’s a good person to share to.. support love non judgement help. Just it not being a secret to hide can massively help reduce urges

    Telling someone can release some of the burden you feel from keeping it a secret for so long and makes someone aware that you're struggling at the moment

    Just be mindful that not everyone is knowledgeable about self harm and may find it difficult to understand
