Say no to self-harm
Some people cut themselves. I burned myself with cigarettes. At the time, I was in such emotional pain that I could hardly stand it. I felt driven to make that pain physical somehow. It seemed to relieve the tension inside me.
After several years of this self-destructive behavior, complete with obvious scars on the insides of my wrists, I found a much better way to deal with the hurt.
