A lot of people are very insensitive to selfharm and those who suffer from it. It's nice to see someone with enough soul to see the problem behind the scars and care enough to want to help, even if it's just through something as simple as a hug.
From the P.O.V of someone who used to self harm and still thinks about it, I would have loved and appreciated a simple gesture like a hug. So yes, I would do the same for others.
Yes I do. Some days those hugs actually help.
Not really, I wouldn't want to get blood on myself.
Yes I would love to give them a hug and let them cry their heart out until they can't anymore
Since I deal with emotionally detached people, I had to draw on my own strength to curb my self-harm. You never know what a kind gesture like a hug or believing in them does; it could probably change their life.
id rather stab them
Yeah it helps to have someone who cares I know I cut my hand up,and a hug would really make things much better.
Yeah I would love to but I used to know someone who self harmed and just did it for attention and it drained me after a while. I know they're not all like that, but that FEMALE made me feel like I was a horrible person if I just smiled or laughed at something funny or whatever because she just wanted to remain miserable :( I tried to be there for her but when she tried turning that anger on me and would lash out at me for nothing, then I thought **** this and I began to truly understand the term that you can't help someone who can't help themselves ;(
I know love, but are we responsible for them?
Yes even guys
yes I do
I feel exactly the same !!
I want to hug everyone that I don't hate. Unfortunately it's a bit weird to randomly hug strangers.
I think at this point I'd hug anyone just to experience some personal human physical interaction.
They are probably lost souls looking for the right path to take... Parents today have too much on their plates and many kids get affected w/ abandonment issues ! They aren't born that way! Be kinder to these people. They suffer in silence. When they're sick & tired of being sick & tired is when they may decide to change...
Right now, at this very moment, I'm trying to talk someone who swallowed a razor blade into going to the hospital and I'm freaking out!
It's tempting, but I wouldn't want to freak them out.
Nope. I'm not trying to enable people who do that.
They shouldn't be rewarded for it, they should be sent to inpatient.
If someone is self-harming, they need professional help. Not a hug.
Hugging does not enable cutters to cut. A hug is just a hug.
Buying razor blades making them readily available to a person that cuts... that's enabling.
The fact that you find something as innocent and harmless as a hug to be "enabling" says a lot about what you think about people who are suffering.
