do you possibly think that someone that would so such a thing does it for entertainment? it is a coping mechanism for pain and agony the likes I hope you never see in your life or of anyone you know and love.

Best Answer

Why do people do it? Oh your life suck? Let me hurt myself. That'll fix it. It's ******* ridiculous. You don't see kids in third world countries cutting and crying to their friends. They're too busy trying to find food and clean water

Best Answer

chances are the person who is cutting is not thinking about starving people in the third world at that moment. ubwag and others have clearly given you several reasons why these people do it but it seems your so angry your not willing to read them or try to understand how complex human psychology is. yes cutting is stupid but so are many things people do when going through bad or desperate times even if it is only desperate in their own minds and you cant really compare it to searchign for food ina third world country. if it worked that way we could use your analogy to ignore every single non life threatening condition or mental disorder and never try to help anyone unless they are looking for food or water.

If you would have read what I said whiteknight, I'm saying most people who self harm post pictures online for attention. If anyone really desperately wanted help they'd get it. I did read the replies and I am utterly enlightened.

Best Answer

please show me where you mentioned the part about your question applying to the ones who post pictures online or show off about it? maybe before calling me a white knight you should calm down and think about what you write rather than take offence just because some of us try to be nice. the whole point is people who are truly depressed are not able to seek help themselves and is why it is better for us to try to understand their psychology and not just be dismissive. people posting photos or bragging about cutting are not the type i am talking about and i think you know that but because your a young kid you try to act smart.

Why are you surprised by my actions? The word ***** is in my user name. Read between the lines. I'm perfectly calm. Most self harmers are white middle aged children. I have plenty of experience with it. It's ducking stupid to hurt yourself because your life sucks. Or because you're unhappy.

Best Answer

if you had been more specific in your original question then my replies would have been different. i am sure you can see my point. some self harmers do it secretly and do not show off or brag etc those are the ones we should help though most times no one finds out unless its by accident. people who do it because theythink its cool somehow are just idiots and not worth my time and will grow out of it unless they become addicted. yes it is stupid to hurt yourself if your unhappy but in some extreme cases like others have described the pain momentarily blocks out whatever other pain or suffering they are going through. its not a solution but a way some cope and hopefully they eventually get help either by talking about their psychological issues or changing their life.

Best Answer

I don't advocate it. And the problems won't go away because they self harm. Whether other people do it or not really doesn't matter. Sadly, we demonize people with emotional problems. That is ridiculous to my way of thinking.

In a desperate mental state just trying to look for relief

Best Answer

the pain keeps, what is going on in their head, away.

it's the only thing they concentrate on in that moment and they feel release from all their problems and thoughts.

it may seem beyond stupid to you, but for some people they dont know how else to cope. We should be sensitive to people who struggle.

People often label what they don't understand as stupid.

Best Answer

-.- It's a coping strategy. You can only understand once you've been in that position

Best Answer

They are doing it because it is the cool thing for bad kids to do. I am so troubled just look at how I cut myself.

Best Answer

agreed :)

Best Answer

depends, sometimes with some people, they've had something traumatic happen to them and it has left them emotionally numb, cutting themselves to feel pain is the only sense of pain they get.

Best Answer

when someone is in huge amounts of emotional pain, they deal with it sometimes irrationally, but it's the nature of the suffering to sometimes take it out on ourselves instead of responding face to face with the hurt.
