Best Answer

Concidering my age,I can honestly say that I had never heard of these attention getting (cutters) it was absolutely unheard of back then.I ask myself,is the mentality of these young ones so fragile? I'de hate to see them as parents of young children.

Best Answer

Because people arent very smart with how they deal with emotions. Some do it as a distraction from themself (I don't really think this is a good reason to me its kind of stupid, you're just trading pain for pain) Others likes a few people i know in person do it for attention.

Its actually quite common. Capitalist society degrades humanity and distances people. makes life extremely artificial. Young girls are constantly being told that they are not good enough and that they need more stuff.

If you look at the correlation between the countries that exhibit a large number of suicide victims nd "cutters", its usually developed and wealthy societies like the US, Canada, Japan, Scandanavia... countries which are considered a higher quality of life.

maybe thats why?

Best Answer

It depends on the person. I personally use to do it cause I wanted to feel alive when I would feel numb inside or like reality wasn't real. The pain would wake me out of the daze and watching the blood would assure me that I was alive. It's also an addiction so it can be quite hard for some people to quit and some will even relapse. I did. Don't do it anymore though. Sorry for the long answer I just felt like answering.
