It's only other peoples opinions, if you like to cut, then slice away! I am not a cutter and I don't understand why that could possibly help someone, but I'm not gonna sit here and try to preach to people about why they shouldn't. Cutters will either die off, or grow out of it.
In my experience... when you cut, you are diverting all the emotions that you are having trouble with to a blade. You eventually get accustomed to always resorting to a blade versus being able to mentally deal with your problems. It's like anything else that's addictive... caffeine, nicotine, cocaine... you get that "pleasure" response from your brain and you want it more and more. And then one day if you're not careful, you can cut too deep or too much to where the consequences can be irreversible. Everyone needs coping mechanisms... but healthy ones.
It doesn't really bother me, I don't do it myself.. but its not my buisness if anyone else does it. I think its looked down on just like any other form of self mutilation.. bc it is just that self mutilation. People don't find it acceptable to hurt yourself on purpose.
Its not bad its more like sad because you do it of depression because either you life is screwed up an you have no hope or people are really mean and they have screwed with you brian with all sorts of lies and hurtfull things that you cant take and it just makes you have the urge to cut yourself to feel the pain go away. My friend does it and thats what she told me

Maybe it's because it is an extreme form of coping that isn't necessary. it's not right to hurt yourself. I just recently found out one of my friends did it. And i wanted her to know i was there for her. Talk to your friends...they'll help you through most if they are your true friends. Mines have helped me since i was young. And i love them for it.
Being someone who cuts I know how stressful it can be to have people judge you when you cut. The guy I was in love with called me a freak and didnt talk to me for the longest time. Theres nothing wrong with it. if it helps you feel better then ok. but just remember.. you could die... yepp
it is bad because there are other ways to get attention. just because your parents wont let you go an dye your hair or go to hot topic or listen to white chapel does not mean you have to cut your self.
Its just an alternative way to relieve your pain, but that makes you look like a weak person who is not courageous enough to deal with problems bravely. And if u call this judging then ya if u cry or smile people will judge it as sad or happy. So instead of cutting u shud become strong . :)
i dnt think it matters. when i cut i dnt feel anythng for a while. but aftr a while i feel totally alive. ( sort of...) but yea. it hurts so if i were u i wldnt get started on it. one u stat its hard to stop.... take it from someone who knos.
