Desperate to hurt myself

When you just want to kill yourself but you don't want to hurt your friends but you want to hurt yourself that's how i feel every day and it's killing me to think about hurting them along with myself  I really just want to run away or hurt someone or just die but i don't want to hurt my friends or my boyfriend in the process.

Hi Isabella,
Congratulations on having the good sense to realize that not only does any for of self-harm not bring you any benefits, but it also inflicts nasty grief and other damage to other people.  In my many years of experience, I have not come across anyone who benefited from self harm. 
See a good psychiatrist for diagnosis and a discussion of treatment options, AND see a good psychologist. counsellor to help you better understand your situation, and to find ways to improve it.  You can workout why you feel this urge to hurt yourself and to revise this, as you do not deserve to be hurt, by yourself or anyone else.
