Dear Malinab,

There are positive and negative ways to get attention (or test if others care about you in this specific case) and the negative way typically ends up with avoidance and distance. Not because people don't care, but it is the negative act that cause confusion and scare ...
Therefore, please stop cutting. It will never help and it could start a negative behavior loop that only make it worse.

I believe your true goal is not to simply test if others care about you. Instead, you want to solve more specific problems and you want to get help and support. If you look at the big picture, you can clearly see cutting or hurting yourself won't help solving this specific problem at all. For example, if feeling "empty" is one of this specific problem, then you should find the meaning and inspiration to fill this void or create "value" and help others ... cutting is achieving the opposite.

I know the situation is much more complicated, so please keep asking for help and guidance from professionals and people you trust. Keep taking meaningful and positive decisions, and you will see people do care about you and want to help in every way they can.

You can also call the helpline anytime you need to talk:
The Lifeline (US) at 1-800-273-TALK (8255)

Please never give up life.

I had the same feeling before, I intend to jump from the fifth floor, but i gave up because i am not brave enough to do so. and then i think about my parents, i know that if i die, they will completely loose their destination of living.
hey, cheer up.
the best way to get rid of such idea is to find your goal and fulfill your schedule. do you have an hobby or something want to do. if you can not find any hobbies, trying to do something new, hiking, meditation, painting, anything!

1. Anima Christi

Soul of Christ, sanctify me; Body of Christ, save me; Blood of Christ, inebriate me; Water from the side of Christ, wash me; Passion of Christ, strengthen me; O good Jesus, hear me; within Thy wounds, hide me; let me never be separated from Thee; from the evil one, deliver me; at the hour of my death, call me and bid me come to Thee, that with Thy saints, I may praise Thee forever and ever. Amen.

2. Prayer Against Malefice from the Greek Ritual

God, our Lord, King of ages, All-powerful and All-mighty, You Who made everything and Who transform everything simply by Your will. You Who in Babylon changed into dew the flames of the ‘seven-times hotter’ furnace and protected and saved the three holy children. You are the doctor and the physician of our soul. You are the salvation of those who turn to You.

We beseech You to make powerless, banish, and drive out every diabolic power, presence, and machination; every evil influence, malefice, or evil eye and all evil actions aimed against Your servant [name of person/s]. Where there is envy and malice, give us an abundance of goodness, endurance, victory, and charity.

O Lord, You Who love man, we beg You to reach out Your powerful hands and Your most high and mighty arms and send the angel of peace over us, to protect us, body and soul. May he keep at bay and vanquish every evil power, every poison or malice invoked against us by corrupt and envious people.

Then, under the protection of Your authority may we sing, in gratitude, ‘The Lord is my salvation; whom should I fear? I will not fear evil because You are with me, my God, my strength, my powerful Lord, Lord of peace, Father of all ages.”

Yes, Lord our God, be merciful to us, Your image, and save your servant [name of person/s] from every threat or harm from the evil one, and protect him/her by raising him/her above all evil. We ask You this through the intercession of our Most Blessed, glorious Lady, Mary ever Virgin, Mother of God, of the most splendid archangels and all Your saints. Amen!

3. Prayer for Deliverance

My Lord, you are all powerful, you are God, you are Father. We beg you through the intercession and help of the archangels Michael, Raphael and Gabriel, for the deliverance of our brothers and sisters who are enslaved by the evil one. All saints of Heaven, come to our aid.

From anxiety, sadness and obsessions, we beg You. Free us, O Lord. From hatred, fornication, envy, we beg You, Free us, O Lord. From thoughts of jealousy, rage, and death, we beg You, Free us, O Lord. From every thought of suicide and abortion, we beg You, Free us, O Lord. From every form of sinful sexuality, we beg You, Free us, O Lord.

From every division in our family, and every harmful friendship, we beg You, Free us, O Lord. From every sort of spell, malefic, witchcraft, and every form of the occult, we beg You, Free us, O Lord.

Lord, You Who said, “I leave you peace, My peace I give you,” grant that, through the intercession of the Virgin Mary, we may be liberated from every evil spell and enjoy your peace always. In the name of Christ, our Lord. Amen.

I have been there. You have got to stick it out. The Lord tries us through the fine to refine us like steel. It is what makes us strong. Although it may not look like it, I believe that proves He has faith in you and you are worth refining. Perhaps you are in your current situation so that you can understand when you come across someone else experiencing what you are now. You may be the tool he uses to help somone else. We cant possibly understand what only the Lord himself can see. Trust him and that everything happens for a reason. Hang on to that faith. You are NOT alone.
