Usually when you hear the word cutting you think of kids or teens just trying to act cool because they have heard of it before. The truth behind the people who do it for real and NOT for attention is that they are doing it for a certain reason. I am and have been a so called "victim" to cutting and that is due to the things in my life for some people that cut they do it in order to calm down from being angry in order for them not to hurt someone else they hurt themselves and as bad as it seems and it truly is there is nothing you can do to fix or help it. If you know someone that cuts you cant just help or fix them the only thing you can do is be a friend to them. I have been taken to doctors and therapists about it and it just makes you want to do it more its something you must fix and want to help fix within your self. Everyone takes out their anger somehow and this is just a result of it. Their is a difference from a true cutter one who wants to be cool and someone trying to kill themselves so its best not to judge either one of them or try to fix either one of them because its whats within that will truly help you overcome anything.

Why?  Why would you cut yourself?  You're destroying the beauty that God has created in you.  Your body is a temple.  Why would you choose to do something so destructive?  Cutting is just as wrong of a choice as smoking, marijuana or being an alchoholic.

Tho i am also a cutter. Try being in there shoes you have no idea what its like to put the blade to ur skin and watch ur self bleed. I cant even feel it. I dont feel cuz im afraid of everything that can hurt me so instead of letting other stuff hurt me i hurt myself i get caght almost every year and i never stop! Its my way of expressing my self each cut has its own story. That know one ever understands!

No one ever said it was smart, they just said it was out there and people do it. I was one of them... I cut when I was high, which was most of the time. When I was doing coke I was an angry person and took it out on myself instead of others. Those kids were my "friends."

I understand where you are coming from but calling it stupid makes cutters want to cut more! They already knows its stupid and by you saying that only makes them hurt more and when we hurt we cut.
