i tried too. a few times.. 1st time for curiosity. my bstfriend told me it made her feel much better, so i tried. a little cut, but i said "no.. its too little.." and did it again, and again and again. then blood finally came out, and i realised what i just did.. what a shame v.v now i cant stop. i just do it. no way to stop v.v
I've done it,twice. And after that my friends confronted me and I promised to stop. Cutting and any other version of self harm,does not help. It works for a few seconds and in the blink of an eye the darkness comes back 10x worse. If you are depressed,talk to someone. Get a therapist,talk to your parents,your best friends,someone. And I might sound older through this text,but I'm only 12. (I've made a lot of mistakes and have been through a lot that most don't go through until the ages of 14-18)
My feelings are only biased towards this poster, because I know people who say things like "I'm getting tattoos on my wrists, to hide my SCARS!" Like they're proud of them. Different circumstances for different people, obviously. But we can't ignore that some people do it for attention. Not all, but still some.
i'm getting a tattoo on my wrist to hide my scars..... i'm not proud.. at all i hate them.... i don't want people to see it, and i don't wanna look down and think of the memories.. But, i am also have tattoos on my wrist just for a tattoo to cover it but a tattoo that truly means something to me.
In response to the little comment-argument there, I have to say, each side has something they're right about, and something they're wrong about. You, the Poster, must realize that while it is your art, you have it posted on a public interface, and as comments are enabled, the Commenter has every right to voice an opinion. However, th Commenter should definitely realize that just because you feel like saying something doesn't mean you should. People have different ways of dealing with pain. Whether they do keep their tendencies secret, (which I find more pathetic than those who broadcast it because I can't stand people who resist help), or choose to make them known is their choice. Calling it pathetic doesn't help. What if she'd read your comment and killed herself or something? That'd get a LOT of attention and it would be entirely on you. So watch what you say. Not every comment is necessary. As a token of peace, I'll favorite. Just because we're on the Internet and largely anonymous doesn't mean we have to use that power to be assholes.
I respect it as art but I can't stand people who 'cut' and then advertise it to the world. It is for attention only. You say your words in imaturity and anger, I thought mine out before posting. I thought and re-thought, you replied impulsively. You should lear to respect other people's opinions.
Ever stop to think the artist was creating something to help STOP the cutting? Art therapy is a really good, positive outlet and substitute behavior. It may not be "advertisement," so much as an attempt at venting the pain in another, less destructive outlet. It's never okay to tell someone in pain that they are pathetic. Never.
You assume the poster HAS friends and family with whom to share these things. I would not assume such. And, in any event, it's sometimes easier to share extreme pain and shame with strangers than with those who know you. Everyone needs an outlet. This place is as good as any to share emotions in the form of art. If they make you uncomfortable, nobody is making you watch.
yep. we are all her for you, anduknow you are not alone. but the thing with scars is that it can work both ways.sign of growth and healing, or keepsakes from the past.. it just depends on hiow you look t it. i try to say my scars are to remind me i overcame times wen i wanted death the most, i dono. just a thought.
This relates to me at the time being. I wish people would understand it's not for attention, or to kill ourselves or etc. etc., It's to help drain the pain that is overwhelming you. I hope things get better for you. <3
