So me and this guy were best friends for 3 years, dated and things didn't end well. We recently started talking again and I self harm and he is aware and he doesn't agree with it. I told him that he was the one person who screwed me over emotionally. He got really quiet and he hugged me. What do you think was going through his mind? How would you have felt?

He probably felt awkward about the situation as a whole. The fact that you self-harm would indicate deeper issues that he's not really in a position to fully aid you with, which makes him feel helpless. The idea how him screwing you over emotionally has been a large reason as to why you are hurting yourself also makes him feel incredibly guilty. He hugged you in silence in the end because he was likely at a loss as to what to say to make you feel better, and you can never go wrong in comforting someone with a hug! :)0
