i don't think it's a reflection on your strength or weakness.
self harming typically is a sign of underlying depression. i wouldn't say someone with depression is weak. rather you self harm to implement an amount of control in your life where you feel you lack it.0

Usually when people try to harm themselves it means they have been too strong on their own for far too long, so they need extra support and encouragement from a Professional. They have underlying issues which are too much of a burden for them to carry on their own.
Everyone has a breaking point for how much they can handle, that doesn't make them weak... it shows that they are only a human with emotions. Sometimes the strongest people are those who are "fighting battles" no one else knows about :)0
