because they need help, (counseling, etc) and are not getting the help they need. they think that will help, but it won't. I kept thinking about it, never did do it though. picked up guitar in an attempt to distract myself. it worked... so now I play guitar, registered for a Montessori school (crossing my fingers that I make it in, the lottery's next month!!!) and just in general hoping to find a place where I feel like I belong. I haven't felt like I belong somewhere in a while now, since I moved with my family from VA to IN.
Because people are sometimes clumsy. For example a guy I know gets paper cuts all the time. Also people trip and injure their body.
But if you mean cutting as is purposefully cutting yourself; people do this for various reasons. Also I have no idea if many people do this. It can be an escape, a mode of self-punishment, or even fun. Some people like the color of blood! O_Oll Whatever the case, you shouldn't cut yourself! It's unhelpful in so many ways.

Sometimes people with deep pain in their hearts cut. When you cut you feel a temporary pain that is worse than what you're feeling in your heart. It's a stupid escape...Though some people cut because they think it's cool...It's those people that think it's cool that I refuse to help.
its really really complicated... I really don't know why I do it either.... its just when you feel really upset that's all you want to do, and when you do it you feel AMAZING for a few mintues, then, you feel like such a failure. And the next morning it feels like it was all a dream and you didn't seriously just do that to yourself. But the cuts are there... its just, when you're upset nothing beats the high cutting gives you. even if its for a short amount of time... March 1st is cutting awareness day so wear orange!
