because it's not "normal" by any standards. it's a violent act, which is bad. it can lead to medical bills which you don't need. because there are better ways to deal with your issues. there is a whole lot of help out there, much of it free. one only needs to find it and use it and never give up! we care...;-)
Because everyone living right now has a purpose of why they should be here. All of us are amazing individuals including you. You probably have so many special talents and you need to show them to people :) You may be stressed, or think people don't care about you right now, but honestly, you are not alone. Sometimes you just have to stay strong and say to yourself, I can get through this. I can tell you right now I care about you and many others who read this and know this do to. Please, for you and for everyone else, do not cut yourself. You are an extraordinary individual and have to believe you're strong enough to get through what you're going through. And if this isn't enough for you, a much better alternative than cutting yourself is using rubber bands on your wrist, use a stress ball, anything not to cut yourself.
The person you are letting physically and emotionally hurt yourself is YOU. You can find other ways to ease this pain in a positive way. Talk to a therapist, immerse yourself in hobbies, do things you love, meditate, get medication if necessary, confide in the people close to you. I am sure someone cares about you, if not there's a complete stranger like me that is telling you to get help so you don't have to resort to this or something worse.
Well I'm assuming you're addicted to it, and if you are, then it will be hard to get over that addiction. The best reason of all is something more important than it being bad for you or it will hurt you later on.
I would say the best solution would be to find someone that you really enjoy spending time with, and having them not approving of it as a reason to stop.
1. It is ridiculous 2. It hurts 3. It makes ya look dumb to the rest of the world. 4. It is an immature thing to do. 5. You will get scars. 6. There is no argument you can make that would support cutting.
Talk to someone about whatever emotional pain is making you attempt to transfer or mirror that pain physically. If you feel the need to physically vent, please don't harm yourself. Take a big pillow and hit it instead.
I understand that it could be your way to let out pain or anger towards yourself or others, but please try to stop! There are lots of people in the world who love and care about you, and everyone is here for a reason. Please don't hurt yourself today, tomorrow or another day. Try writing out your feelings or telling someone, anybody. Stay strong. You can stop if you try, you just have to believe yourself.
Makes you look ugly to others, scars will make you look like you have a disease, you'll get stared at, makes you seem weird. So stop and take care of your skin, you skin can heal every 7 years but only if you stop it and you can use lotions that are made especially to lessen the look of scars but only if you stop it and you must listen to us cause all of us care about you.
I've been in recovery for about three years. Quitting self-harming acts was one of the best things i did. Quitting is hard to do but well worth it. I had to learn the hard way. I know it is one of those things that you think you need and will never be able to stop but you can. Once you admit that you are ready to stop, the process of gaining your life back will start. You WILL NOT do anything UNLESS you have made up your mind. Self-harm causes ugly scars all over your body. Its not very healthy, and can land you in a mental hospital and or a RTC Placement. Which is not fun. You can get infections that make you lose your limbs. You cannot wear what you want because you have to hide your cuts/scars. The scars WILL be there forever. You could easily kill yourself by butting in the wrong spot or cutting the wrong way. It is very dangerous. But the first step is to say "I'm ready to stop."
Everyone is gonna say something about how it hurts or something like that. But, they don't realize that is why you are doing it. Its obvious that you want to hurt yourself. However you shouldn't because it could cause MAJOR health issues and there are people out there that will help you get through whatever it is you are going through. I know from experience.
You are brilliant. To have the determination to stop it in the first place is great. It means that you know there is something to live for. It means you know you don't have to stay in pain. Be yourself, reach your goals rather than dreaming of them and live your life as amazing as you know you can make it no matter what position your in!
I know how you feel, I used to cut. I don't anymore, but I still sometimes get the urge to. But when I do get the urge to, I do something that makes me happy. Everyone has something that makes them happy. I guess you have to find it, mine was drawing and listing to music. But, please stop, it's really not good for you, and it could cause diseases. :)
