How can someone stop cutting themself without telling anyone?

Cutting is an addiction, so it is hard to control. Tell her about the butterfly project or tell her how much you care for her, tell her you would be lost without her. And one more thing, tell her I said stay strong <3!

Honestly I hope you (or anyone for that madder) has to go through what she is. Depression and cutting are VERY serious things do you relies every 40 seconds someone takes their own life. You should never say things like that!

you don't think they have a mental problem?
Report as
Yes but it is addicting. It is not going to be easy to stop, you can't understand how addicting things are until you have been addicted to something then you will understand how hard it is to quit. Honestly depression is a hard topic for MANY people, you are being a bully making people feel bad about themselves. That just means maybe you need to see someone about how you have the urge to hurt others.

No! Not at all! Metal problems are something that is physically different or (messed up) with someones brain. yes she maybe be having depression issues, may have low self esteem, but NOT mental Problems!

DOES THIS LOOK LIKE SHE IS BRAGGING ABOUT CUTTING TO YOU!? She is seeking help in her boyfriend. I think you are around to much bad stuff then if you think that she is bragging about this. If you are regularly seeing people killed and doing drugs.

Ok so you are a murderer no wonder you don't care if she is hurting herself. Sorry that sounds mean, but that looks like the truth to me.

This person is all I am talking about now. She is not bragging if she wants to keep it a secret, I think you may be using the word bragging wrong if you believe that this PARTICULAR girl is bragging about it.
Report as
no she isn't saying a word its her boyfriend

Are you in the army? Truth is that sometimes people puts up walls to protect themselves. Now I don't want to get into a full fledged fight.
Report as

Report as

Therapy might be the best option but trust me for some people it is VERY hard to stop! Make sure she knows you love her. Everyone doesn't need to know though don't be telling people. But if you think her depression could get bad enough for her to take her own life, You must make a very hard choice and tell someone. If you truly think she is in bad danger you need to tell someone.
