Why do people wanna hurt themselves for no reason

?_?

Report as

WHOA BACK OFF!!!!!!! People hurt themselves because there trying to deal with pain.It could be physical or emotional pain.People don't hurt themselves for no reason,there's always a reason.So don't be quick to judge.I agree with @iAshlynn.

I guess most people hurt themselves as a way of expressing depression. It's a way to staying alive while feeding destructive urges. Don't hate me...

Ha yes a lot of people do it for attention ALOT! Its becoming a trend to be "emo" now, if they were really doing it because they were hurt/mad/depressed they wouldn't be proud of it and take pictures of it and post them up on facebook or say "I'm emo I like to cut myself" on social sites and stuff. Like 3-4 years ago hardly anyone cut themselves, but back than those people actually did do it because they were depressed or something

Wtf people don't do stuff like that!!!!!!!!!!!! Idk and idc who you may hang with,but emo people are supposed to be depressed.Which brings me back to my point....

Yes thats why I said "emo" with the "" around it. Plus I seen alot of people here on ask.com that say "im emo, I like to cut myself" on their description. Too many people now a days do it for the image thats why i said MOST i know actual emo people who do it cz theyre depressed but most do it for attention. I once cut myself too, only once thoee cz something had happened to my dad and I felt it was my fault so i grabbed the nearest sharp thing around me (my guitar string D; ) and shoved it into my arm until i cut myself, regret it, so yes i do understand that people do it because theyre depressed/mad but people are sick ow that they do it to be "emo"

Wow so rude. Just shut up if you're gonna be rude to me :P
Have you ever heard of someone whose fake? As in they only pretend to be something/someone they're not. There's a lot of fake people in this world and if you haven't noticed that you obviously been living under a rock. There's a ton of fake emo's (posers) who only do that to fit into a group and think in order to be emo you need to cut yourself and wear only black.
I am NOT saying every person who does that does it for attention

Fitting in a group???????? Wtf?????? To most people being Emo is not a good thing......It seems like those "Fake People" would join a different group to fit in with the rest...... well whatever .......I just don't get why anybody would fake being emo but doing real harm to themseleves????? Just to fit in,,ummmm yeah I don't think so.......Plus if there trying to fit in....maybe the real reason for self harm is because there upset they have to pretend being emo to fit in and because they have no real friends........

Where do you live? (dont answer that) cz where i live (LA) Being emo/scene is a huge trend and alot of people are just emo for the look and to fit in.
Report as
the fake ones who post pictures up dont really even cut themselves they just scrape themselves, last time i checked little scrapes dont hurt so theyre not really hurting themselves.
Report as
Again back to my point...most people just have scrapes and there is no real self harm being done...your points are invalid....now back to my point......Btw to answer your rhetorical question........Orlando Florida is where I live.Not filled with losers like LA is.............
Report as
The people who scrape themselves are the fakes who claim they cut themselves, to fit in and get attention...
California >>> Florida

In some cases it could be depression but I know this one girl that cuts herself for no reason but it may be because this boy does not like her

Its not for no reason. , They are emonlishly hurting on the inside. and by cutting it is a temporary relief from the pain.. as straing as that might sound.. its like the pain of cutting hurts more than the pain inside.. to make you foget the ''real pain'' in ones life like being sexly abused or fat ect. what ever it may be..
