I haven't self-harmed for a few weeks now but something this evening has thrown me so much I'm really struggling with urges. It has been hard to control them and this has shown me how fragile I am

I've been there before. I don't know what exactly caused my urges but I know making myself be around people made it where I couldn't go through with the urge because someone would see.
