i'm not depressed or emo, i have a lot of friends and i'm pretty popular, i wear long sleeves a lot and i do it when i cant handle things, dont answer if you dont understand

It is because people should have a natural survival instinct that includes not harming ones self. The fact that you are cutting indicates that ways you are hurting inside are becoming so overwhelming that you need to hurt your body in order to numb the pain. That is a different level of emotional pain than most people deal with on a regular basis. It's normal for people to be worried, believe it or not, it just shows they care.

All you need is love <3
you need help

idk its just kinda wierd that ppl cut themselves to deal with their problems its not gonna solve anything and it will leave gross marks...why would you wanna do that to your precious body?

Do not Eat YelloWsnoW
Because it hurts? like lol

You can get germs in your body and you lose a layer of skin but some people just handle it differnt

er , you can hit an artery and kill yourself ? :-)

.. get help , really .

I used to cut myself as a teenager. I didn't see the big deal either at the time, but now I see that it is a very irrational response to dealing with pain. It doesn't solve the underlying problems, and my cutting stopped when I learned more constructive ways to deal with problems that actually helped the problems rather than letting it come out sideways and hurt myself.

Ms. Makaveli
because you can die and could hit a vein. stop being stupid.

I am sorry if you do cut yourself but it really is wrong. You are abusing your body and causing more harm than good. It is just tearing you confidence and personality. It is ruining your body. Everyone douse deal with hurt inside but cutting yourself isn't a good way to solve it.

Good point. People never critizize other ways of expressing anger. I think people are worrying to much about other people and just need to chill out.

i do it and i know the problems it brings.it means your not handleing emotions in a healthy way.it means your confused.it could kill you if your not careful.it can eventually bring on more pain.you start lying to your loved ones.most of the times it becomes a way of life!does that really sound like a picnic at the park?its not.nothing good comes from it.i would know.

because your mutilating your body....and your not the only one hurting, your friend and family are hurting too, they dont want to see you go threw that.....
I did this for 8 years...i did it everyday of my life, and it became an addiction. Everytime someone made me mad, i was sad, i did something wrong, or i just felt bad i would cut myself. I had to go to a psychologist, i was in a mental place for a week with reallllly crazy people. It hurts everyone around you. And what is the point??? The pain goes away for the minute that you cut yourself but then you end up with grose cuts all over your body YUCK, its not attractive and it will NOT attract guys. Take it from me, Someone who cut themselves for years and years and i still think about doing it alot, but i think about who i will hurt and what if i accidently go to far. Think about it. Its not worth it.

One day you are going to wake up and realize your arms are full of scars that you can't hide. How do you explain that to your kids? Most people who use cutting as a form of letting out anger usually understand there is a medical problem and seek help as it is not a typical way of dealing with issues that bother you. A big concern is that you cut too deep and bleed to death.

The idea of hurting yourself to fix your problems would never work.
Its only a sign that you have lost your battle with whatever you're fighting, it shows you have realized you are at total fault and anything to drive you to doing this is utterly wrong :( because nothing you could have done that only effects yourself could drive you to hurting yourself.
So something is hurting you bad, on the outside, so confront it and challenge it, dont agree and hurt yourself

The big problem is, it is not normal to hurt yourself physically. This seems to be in the self-esteem area and I suggest you get some help.

Plan B
its so bad bcuz its addictive and you can get infected very badly.
so deal with ur problems with sumthing other than cutting

You are in very bad shape mentally. Please get help.

I guess it all depends on if it is intentional or not if it is on purpose then I think people have a right to freak out

¡¿ʇɐɥʍ ʎɐs
take a guess smart one...cutters usually mutilate their bodies and 9/10 end up killing themselves...D.A.

lol lmao lol lol omg im dying laughing not @ u thou

Hun ok, Cutting is bad. In a way I'm glad you don't discriminate People who fully discriminate about people just urk me off. Cutting is bad. it can lead to infection or death, it leaves scars that are constant reminders of the bad you have gone through. Some people embrace these scars, for others it makes them worse later in life.

Cutting is a bit like punching someone, its bad. To hurt someone at all is wrong. To hurt yourself is evidence that you have low self esteem. It hurts people around you because its physical evidence that you are hurting. They can't deny that you are if there are scars proving you are.

If you are cutting hun you really shouldn't. Don't discriminate against other cutters, but don't think "oh its fine for people to make themselves bleed to stop the hurt" cos it really isnt.

Its good that you found a way to deal with your problems instead of keeping it all inside. However, cutting is dangerous because it poses a physical threat to your body. Open cuts leave you vulnerable to disease, and could cause exessive bleeding.

Also, consider your future. One day, the things that are bothering you will pass, but scars you make on your body will be there still. You dont want to have to explain all those scars to a future employer who might then question your problem solving skills, for example.

I encourage you to find another outlet for your problems. Talk to a good friend or write a journal. I used to write about the things that were hurting me and then cut the papers and burn them, it was an outlet for the destructive feelings, but didnt cause me or another person physcial harm. Now, I work out when im stressed or hurting, it is a healthy outlet and lets you get out some of that frustration.

To each is own is what I always say, but cutting is just plain retarded. If you enjoy that type of thing, get a freakin' tattoo! You need Dr. Phil. Get a life besides sitting up by yourself and drowning in sorrow! Go to the zoo or something!

eh, people don't like what they don't understand. People who deal with pain by running naked in the rain forest don't get it when other people deal by making a small cut in the flesh. Rain forest folks aren't use to seeing that stuff and so, don't want to be bothered with it. therefore, they say it's sooooooooooo bad. but different strokes for different folks.

i agree

wata babe
it could lead to infection. also if u cut urself, u are just distracting urself from ur problems and not confronting them.

Rev JackM
Cutting yourself is not bad, OK. So lets start from here. You cut yourself to get rid ot the thoughts that you have. It's a form of punishment. you cut yourself to relieve the pain that you are going through, and that's perfectly ok.

what some people don't realise is that they think you are suicidal, and panic. It's not their fault, they don't understand, so don't attack them.

When you are hammering at a nail, and miss, you might hurt your finger or thumb, but then you may then slam your fist into something to try to take the pain away, well all you are doing, is taking the pain away, nothing else.

What we can do as Mental Health professionals and counsellors, is to help you to divert the need to cut yourself into something more positive, and replace it by something else. It sounds easy, and in a way it is, but it's a process that needs to be followed over a period of time.

The counsellor will work with you over that period, and eventually you will notice the difference. you will notice that you will not have the need to cut yourself as much Eventually the need to cut will go away completely.

you can do this, listen to your heart. Blessing


People don't usually intend to hurt themselves permanently when they cut. And they don't usually mean to keep cutting once they start. But both can happen. It's possible to misjudge the depth of a cut, making it so deep that it requires stitches (or, in extreme cases, hospitalization). Cuts can become infected if a person uses nonsterile or dirty cutting instruments — razors, scissors, pins, or even the sharp edge of the tab on a can of soda.

Cutting can be habit forming. It can become a compulsive behavior — meaning that the more a person does it, the more he or she feels the need to do it. The brain starts to connect the false sense of relief from bad feelings to the act of cutting, and it craves this relief the next time tension builds. When cutting becomes a compulsive behavior, it can seem impossible to stop. So cutting can seem almost like an addiction, where the urge to cut can seem too hard to resist. A behavior that starts as an attempt to feel more in control can end up controlling you. This increases the chance that you will make a mistake or go too far.

cutting yourself isnt a bad thing.its a way of surviving and dealing with everything difficult in your life. ysays. "OMG, look at her wrists, thats so bad she needs help" but really its a good thing. It shows that you are coping with life. ITS NOT A BAD THING AT ALL SO EVERYONE WHO HAS SAID IT IS. GET A GRIP. :) in a nice way of course. xx

I did the same thing and the reason i believe is bad because its very addictive. Ppl here will leave negative remarks to that question please dont listen.
I had a bad problem with it now im left with numerous scars on my left arm that will never go away. So i did more harm then good. It also means that the love for urslef isnt there. Learn to love you! Appreciate the person you are and try to stop it.
And DO NOT listen to ppl who call u crazy or anything...Just love yourself..and the fact that u asked this question means u probably wanna stop..

Maybe because other people care about you and when you hurt yourself you are also hurting them.....
