How to over come cutting

Report as

If your depressed man see a doctor , psychiatrist , or a consoler . There is nothing wrong with getting help what's wrong is not getting help . It takes more strength to admit you have a problem than it does to remain silent. All it takes is that one time and then you are gone there is no coming back.

Or u could stop trying to bully ppl via ask. And maybe just maybe, give a usefull answer. But your the "grown up?" So whatever you say buddy
Report as
Yes, bullying is telling people to grow up. I'm guessing you're that kid who tells the teacher on everyone. So whatever you say buddy.
Report as
First I graduated some time ago. So I don't tell on anyone to the teacher. Lol haven't you ever heard. If u don't have something nice to say don't say it at all. So well get the hint He has a problem and he is talking about it. And that seems a lot more mature than u. U r very amusing Thx for the laugh
Report as
1. I really was. I still have a smirk on my face. 2. No I will not show u as proof. But good try. The only reason I commented u was u were the only comment up at the time and he deserved a better response than ur useless babble. So that's it for me. Good day.

Talk to someone you trust BrandonBain I know what your dealing with I almost lost my boyfriend last night if he would have went a inch deeper I would have lost him. Remember people are here for you don't let people get you down. Ten years from now it will not matter what people said it will only matter who was there for you. I know it's not easy dealing with over coming cutting because you feel like it's the only way to take out your pain well it's not i'm getting help for depression I cried out for help. Know that your worth it and what people say does not matter. People take time to judge you but most of them don't take to too understand you and what your dealing with. Do something you enjoy don't cut it's not worth it I was in the hospital last year because I cut. Don't look at the past it's a step in the future it happens for a reason.

Find someone you can trust and confide in them. Have them be your rock. I have a friend who calls me every time she's about to cut herself, and I do my best to help her. Sometimes you just need reassurance from someone who cares enough to help.

You should stop your only momentarily numbing your pain and using that as a release if your depressed talk to someone if you can for example a psychiatrist or a consoler . I wish I would have had a support system or someone to talk to I had to figure things out by myself . I really suggest you get help your not gaining anything from cutting .

Report as
Cindy he is not a "horrible child" he is probably just dealing with life everyone gets sad at times. If your reading this Brandon your not a bad kid or crazy your just not dealing with your problem in the right manor . I was once very depressed I thought about ending my life I think that was the lowest point in my life and I have promised myself to never let it get to that point again . Sure I feel sad sometimes , but the truth is you either have to talk to someone or suck it up. I had to suck it up I wasn't able to talk to someone so basically I was dealing with a problem dealing with others , my own thoughts and emotions and trying to fix my own problems at the same time . Do you realize how hard that is Brandon I didn't have a release or a fallback . I had nervous breakdown and would feel depressed every day and sometimes cry . So please Brandon get some help not only for your loved ones , but most importantly yourself .
Report as
Your worth more than you think Brandon regardless of what people say or do . You control your own thoughts and body .

that's my point shane I know he's not horrible and I know he doesn't deserve it but until he relizes that he has something special to give this world especially with his music or just someone to talk to that has a heart he might just keep cutting himself brandon you do need help but you need to help yourself too. my sister killed herself and it hurt me so bad that I tried to kill myself too until I realized what I was doing to the people who loved me and how much I was hurting them and I told myself that I didn't deserve this and you don't either.

I know that he is not a horrible child and he probably is going through lots of stuff but that doesn't mean he deserves to be abused and thats what hes doing he's abusing himself. I think you have a lot to offer brandon. your music could help you and others. and anyone that would rather hurt themself then the person that is hurting them has to have a very kind heart so stay around .

Well Brandon's right it is like getting high, and it does help. You really can't fully explain much less understand it, unless you've done it or are doing it now.

I was in the hospital last year for it.
Report as
Well sparring is like a high you get adrenaline rush and it feels like nothing else in the world matters it's sort of like your in the zone . Also like shooting a gun . Find a different way to get out your sadness for example dance, martial arts , boxing , Brazilian jujitsu , and writing the list can go on forever it also helps to get out of the house .

I was in the hospital plenty of times and I realized no medicine or people can help you unless your ready to help yourself and actually people stop giving a darn anyway. I mean the feeling never goes away but you still have to stop yourself.

It's the fact I feel like i'm never good enough this is the start of my book There was a girl name Jessica who woke up every day but never wanted to attend school because she was bullied every day of her life she was also sadly called names and felt like nothing was being done. People thought they knew her but they were all wrong no one knew her at all she was hiding something. Jessica felt like she could never trust people because she never had support in her life from a mother or father. When Jessica was little she was abused by her father and her mother was also abused by her father but Jessica could not do anything but sit there and watch as her father hit her mom because she was only a couple months old. Jessica would go to bed and ask herself what if she could change the abuse and it would all stop but she never knew someone would take her away from the abuse and give her a new start at life. Jessica was placed in a foster home with someone she thought loved her but someway somehow she found out she was wrong again. Jessica always feels like she’s alone even if someone was talking to her. Jessica felt like she was never good enough no matter what she did she felt like people always pushed her away and was never there for her intell they wanted something. Jessica had a dark past but does not tell many people about it because she feels like every one will judge her no matter what she says. School is like prison for her she feels like she is trapped inside a body of a person she does not want to be she’s starting to regret even being on Earth. Jessica felt like her life had no meaning so she tried to end her life last year due to being bullied and called names at school she felt like that was the only way out.

I realize that things can be hard trust me I have been through some pretty hard times as well trust me . I may not wear it on my sleeve , but I have been hurt , alone , and depressed . The truth is you just have to talk to someone or suck it up that's the cold truth . Do you want to know why because sadly no one cares and no one will care as much as you do . I learned that myself the hard way . I learned that when I would think about ending my life when I was in my room. You are the only one that will truly dwell on your thoughts and emotions you may tell someone and sure they will care , but there not going to sit there all day and feel sorry for you . 5 minutes will pass and they will continue on with there day . That's the truth and that's just life . It's not going to help you if you always think about your past . If you don't want to move on your not going to . You have to forgive people and be at peace that is the only way you will ever be happy .

Stop thinking negative about yourself and look on the positive outcome of your life. And what all good things you got in it even though they may be small which is better than nothing. And you can also have somebody a relative or close friend you can confine yourself to and talk about what all bothers you. Keep in mind too that it's not healthy keeping everything bottled up inside because sooner or later your just hurt yourself or hurt somebody else. And don't be feeling weak or afraid to talk to somebody about how you feel too when actually talk to somebody when your feeling down usually helps out a whole lot. And hope you don't make a fatal mistake please reconsider on putting that cutting away and stop....

I deal with kids all the time who cut themselves and it seems to me that they do it because they like the feeling of hurting their self and they feel they deserve it. I went in the hospital before and saw people in their late 30's who still cut themself and had scars so deep all over their arms. you can never get rid of those scars and what are you suppose to tell your kids or significant other that you hated yourself so much that you had to cut yourself what will they think of you will they be afarid of you cutting them have you ever done anything so bad that you feel you deserve to be cut and bleed for what you have done and if you have how long are you going to punish yourself love yourself enough to stop hurting yourself before you have to explain this to your loved ones or before it is to late and you hit a major artery and die are a major nerve and paralyze your arm or hand.

Do you really want to stop, if you do you can do it, you just have to have something in your life you care lots about that can motivate you to do positive things, if you hang out with cutters they will only poor more things of what they are going through and will persuade you to feel negative about your life as well, i know that you probably think that no one cares about your life or why you were even born, but truthfully we are the only ones that can make our own choices in life, find your motivation on stopping( i had a stepson who was a cutter he stopped once he realized we did love him and cared about him, his mother had disowned him, left abandoned we took him in and we coped with him, he is now in a relationship and is very happy) if your home causes you depression and negative thoughts hang out with positive people

I am just letting you know I have never cut so if this helps or not I have no idea, you can test it out for me. First of all take away all of the things you cut with. Try a new hobby, and whenever you feel like cutting do that instead, like singing, or painting. Think about all the good things in life. Wear something to cover your wrists, like bracelets that way you will think about what you are doing before you even have the chance to take them off. Talk to your parents, I know it may seem awkward, but it can help them to understand what is going on so they can help. It may help to talk to someone, if you want to you can talk to me anytime, don't worry I won't judge I just want you do get better.

Well, it took me several years, but you've gotta have coping skills and a strong support. It may be one of those instances when you need residential care, and its okay if you do. That's what i had to do. It is not easy. I know this sounds clich? and use a journal write in it every nigh, it works believe me. This is an addiction that you want to stop. I still till this day want to do it, but it is an easy way to die. Hope this helps.

cutting is very addicting, I know because I've done it. I was once so upset with my girlfriend I literally grabbed a knife from the kitchen stared her in the eye and hacked both of my arms up until they were numb. Crazy I know, but I was young and filled with rage. How I overcame all of the cutting, rage, anger, stress, violence was very simple. I created a goal in my life. Something to look forward too. If you truly want to stop cutting, set a goal to make get a tattoo, meet a nice girl, play an instrument, something to take your mind off of all the pain your going threw. Something to look forward too man. Listen to ICP, or Bridal. Anything can help.
