Stupid Cutters

Emo, is a genre. I like the music, But I hate people who call themselves emo, and I expecially hate people who cut themselves, and pretend to have problems. All they want is attention.

I know someone. This person is 10 years old... she posts everyday on Instagram... no problem with that, right? Wrong. This girl mostly posts stuff about her being sad and that kinda thing. "I guess that's still alright," you're probably thinking. Well she cuts her arm. That goes to show how pathetic human society is. AT TEN YEARS OLD YOU HAVE NOTHING TO WORRY ABOUT APART FROM CHILD ABUSE AND NEGLECT CHRIST! Cutting your arms is pathetic. If you want attention butcher up a school. (SARCASM)

The school joke was sarcasm. Not the other parts of the text.

I told a few of my close friends. That's it. I don't like attention, I hate it. I already know I'm pathetic, useless, ugly, and stupid. People don't call me fat, but I know I am, even though people who mention my weight say I'm skinny. My opinion is I'm fat. I didn't eat much today. For lunch, I had an apple. For breakfast, I had a breakfast sandwich. For dinner, I had a leftover breakfast sandwich. I know I probably will eat close to nothing tomorrow, since my body image is so low. Every day I get reminded of what a terrible human being I am. People purposely sit far from me. They often make loud, sarcastic remarks. "Ugh! This bit,ch!" "Ew, this girl!" "She's being mean, move me away!" Classmates do everything they can to get me in trouble and move away from me. I've been labeled, too. 'Poser', 'emo', 'faker', 'sl-ut', '', 'ugly', and so many more names and labels. All this post did was remind me how horrible my life is. Maybe not to starving children in Africa, but this is MY living hell and that's theirs. Your opinion is valid, as so many do this and screw those who actually need help, but maybe you could've said it nicer. Same with some commenters. I know I'm late to this post, but I am 100% positive I would NEVER have found it last year.

PS: Emo, for those who don't know, IS a music genre, or WAS. It's short for emotive hardcore, a mild hardcore music type with lyrics that talk about strong emotions. It was originally for describing a certain type of music, but is now thrown carelessly and aimlessly on some people and abused by actual posers and attention seekers.

That is sick! These people are suffering from unbearable pain at school, home or both! Why do you hate them? I hate the people that make us cutters feel like that! And I'm only 12! How could you hate someone who is in so much pain they think the only way to stop it is to die! Think before you speak please! They don't want attention. They want acceptance and the only way to keep them sane from all the mental pain they feel is to cut. It helps them cope. They think so low of themselves they think that they are a waste of space! It is selfish, cruel and attention seeking to do that to someone! You would want to die too if you were in a cutters shoes. Or even mine. Never say you hate someone going through unbearable pain in wich you probably tease and bully them for!

No, it's sick that they're grabbing a freaking knife and slicing open their own skin!! If they didn't want attention why would they post about it on google, twitter, tumbler, or write about it on wattpad? If your twelve, tell your parents to see a professional, already! Or just continue killing yourself... slowly. Whatever you want. Maybe it is the only way out!! Cutter are a waste of space, and while you may call ME cruel and selfish, say something along the lines of "You don't know anything!" But at least I can take the 'painful words' or 'hurtful comments.' I know I'm going to have 50000 people harassing me, but at least I got my point across.

Anyone who 'cuts' is a pathetic member of society. If you cut because of your 'pain' that's ******* stupid. They mostly want attention. If you have problems you can always tell a trustworthy adult.

Are you kidding!? Cutting releases blood which makes people feel a lot better when they have a high blood pressure or anxiety. People have been 'blood letting' for centuries. Get your facts right before you accuse people of cutting for attention


You know what I find funny? The fact that only the ones who cut are defending this. No one in their right mind would defend this kind of behavior. And that's the solution. The ones who cut are not in their right minds. What the author was trying to say that you all have slammed them as a "hater" was that they hate the ones who don't seek out help and keep on cutting. If you cut, there's something wrong with you. Seek out help. TALK TO OTHERS. GET AWAY FROM THE ONES MAKING YOU FEEL THIS WAY. MY GOD. STOP HARMING YOUR BODIES. IT DOESN'T SOLVE A DAMN THING.

Are you ******* kidding me? It's dumb ***** like you and half the people commenting on your piece of **** post that make me want to give up on humanity. I'm not justifying slef-harm by any means, but what the **** gives you the right to judge others on how they cope with their problems? And how the hell do YOU know if they have problems or not? It's hard for people to get help. Sometimes they're young and can't face their parents so self-harm seems like the easiest solution. Sometimes people are afraid to seek help because of judgemental ***holes like you. Physical pain releases endorphins in your brain that soothe you and make you feel good. It's your body's natural reaction to pain and some people would rather feel physical pain than emotional pain and, again, who are you to judge that person? You have no clue what that person is going through so why don't you shut the **** up and quit acting like you know everything.

How about you don't cut and post it on the internet? You're a ******* attention ***** if you do.

It's really not that hard

step 1: go to counselor office
step 2: get treated
step 3: pay (if needed) (may be covered by insurance either partially or fully)
step 4: repeat

its not that easy

you're right it is easier than it looks

What I don't get is that why perfectly capable human beings would rather physically harm themselves than get actual help, perhaps therapy. There are so many people worse off than you and you think your life is so bad. I understand bullying, being raped are not nice things that can really lower self esteem levels but there is therapy and if you are not willing to take it then you should be put in a straight jacket, why? Because you are a danger to yourself and other people. Why cut yourself when you are able to walk into a therapy session and make a better life for yourself. I understand people with mental disorders can't stop cutting, schizophrenics for example. You are able to stop yourself but you decide to stay home and slit your wrists when people that care and want to help you are still waiting with open arms. If you are the person who refuses to get up and actually help yourself then you need a life check.

Actually, when you cut, many people get addicted, just like with drugs. You even experience withdrawal. You become addicted to the endorphins rushing to your brain, so many people don't want to quit.

How would you know if they dont have problems. You know their names .. not their stories or lives. I think that your being really rude and disrespectful.

This makes me laugh, I don't call myself "emo".. It's just another label, we're all human. I do cut however, I cut because of people like you, I cut because of many reasons. I DO NOT cut for attention. Yes, hate me all you want. I don't care, go sit in the line of people that hate me. Honestly, you're stupid. You be someone who cuts, (Don't even say ''ewwie I don't want to be a fggt like dem.) how would you like seeing this crap. People hating on you because of what you do to YOUR body, it's our body, we make the decisions. So stop, like literally. Stop labeling, stop all of this. You hate people you don't even know. Do you see how stupid you sound? Okay? Okay.
Now, honey, you're the attention seeker.

You are mutilating a perfectly good body because you're ******* depressed yet you do nothing to ******* help yourself. You have a ******* phone yet you want call the hot lines that they have to help people like you. To talk to people like you so you don't have to ******* hurt yourself.

You cut because of people who want you to stop cutting? The **** kind of logic is that? They want you to stop harming yourselves, you little ****. Instead of bitching about how we label you and how we need to leave you alone, get help. Get the help you need to stop cutting. Otherwise, you want to die.

Yes, people like YOU can push us over the edge. Labelling us, make us feel even more worthless than we already feel, calling us names, attention seeker, making jokes about suicide about self-harm. You want to help? Support us, give us tips, TRY to help, at the place of only making it worse.
Yes, we need help. We can admit that. We KNOW that. But do people help us? No, they just push us down, saying how stupid it is, how to JUST get over it.
"Telling a cutter to just stop is the same as telling a blind man to just
see.'' ~Anonymous.

Go help someone and/or contribute to society for once it will probably help

Yeah, if you cut you're still ******* pathetic.

It's really cute how you think we cut for attention. Enlighten me, how is one attention seeking for feeling enough pain to want to prove to themselves that they are as worthless and "problemless" in your words, to drag a blade across their arms, or their legs, putting their life at risk of ending. It takes a lot of pain for someone to do that, and it's people like you who make people cut. You are so ignorant, as is everyone else who makes someone feel so bad about themselves to the point they want to end their lives. It's people like you who are desperate enough for attention to go as far as pull out and pick on the people who feel bad enough about themselves to harm themselves in such a way. Obviously you don't know what it's like to hate yourself so much. You know why? I'm sure that your entire life you've had people tell you how beautiful you are. We are the people that have been called out for not being good enough. If people are just as beautiful because they wear too much makeup and skimpy clothing, the truly beautiful people are tossed aside as not perfect enough because they do not over-do the makeup and beauty products.
I'm sorry, who's attention seeking?

Actually you are wrong. You mad because people "like us" generalize you. You're generalizing us. No one has ever told me how beautiful or pretty I am and frankly I don't have the body or looks of someone who would be considered beautiful either. My parents have made me feel like crap and so have others. I know I'm way to sensitive and cry at the slightest criticism. Hell my mom has even called me fat (not because she hates me but because she wants me to live a healthier life style. People bullied me my first year of high school. There are many times when I feel worthless. Life's not fair for me. I work hard and have found myself looked over by people who are not qualified for it and got it simply because they have more connections and that makes me feel like I'm not good enough. All of that yet not ONCE have I EVER concerned hurting myself. I don't have the right to feel sorry for myself when I have what impoverished people would kill for. Those people don't have the money or the resources to get the help they need yet they don't slit their wrists. Then there are people like you. People who feel the to go on tumblr and these other social media sites and host a huge pity party for yourself by saying you want to kill yourself or posting pics of your cuts. The same internet that you use to post that stuff can be used to find help to talk to people that can keep you from hurting yourself. That phone can be used to call hot line services to find someone to talk to so you don't have to cut yourself. Better yet! You could use the Internet to find things that make you fricking happy or make you feel a little better when something bad happens or you feel upset. Rather than find something positive in life or find help you sit there and wallow in your own self pity and blood rather than trying to make it better for yourself, even if it means getting help. You have the means to do it yet you sit their and complain about how no one cares about you when people are offering help. If you wanted help, If you wanted things to be better for yourself, you would get that help. You wouldn't focus on the negative about yourself and your situation. But you don't want help which is what makes it pathetic. You feel sorry for yourself when there are people that don't know where their next meal is coming from. People who have to decide which kid gets to eat tonight yet these people find a way to get through these times without mutilating their body. It's because they know that harming themselves doesn't solve the fricking problem or make their current situation any better!

Wow, you've never cut yourself. Congratulations. Would you like a cookie? How about some advice instead? Why don't you shut the **** up and quit calling people "pathetic" and judging how other people live their lives. And you really think telling someone that their problems are irrelevant and don't matter because someone else has it much worse is supposed to make them feel better? God, I hope you never have kids. It's ignorant people like you that really **** me off. I don't normally comment on threads like this, but some of you people seriously need help. I'm not saying that cutters shouldn't get help, because they do. Self-harm isn't healthy and it is addictive and escalates over time, but I'm not going to be an insensitive ***hole like you and put someone else down who already has enough problems on their hands. Learn how to be a decent human being. Please.

Really? Judging from the comments here, the cutters are sure being friendly. How about this? They get help and get away from the problems that they're experiencing. If they can't get away, then get the help is even more needed. Instead of self harming and moaning about things, get help.

**** off, this person has common sense.

Maybe you have one ****** life, as you make it seem, but it only shows how strong you are. People who have self-harmed were just not strong enough to cope with every thing that's going on and you shouldn't judge them for that, just try to help. That's all they need: help and support, not criticism and insults.

You know, my entire life was just a hell for me. I was beaten constantly by my older brother and dad for being "too weak". My mother couldn't help me. I walked funny and so at school, I was picked on. My best friend died when I was 13. I'm 18 now. Everyday, I went through hell. And guess what? Not once did I want to cut. I rose up. I fought back. So before you go on and on about how people like "us" that don't understand you, remember this: Get some ******* help and quit your bitching.

people who cuts themself don't search for attention but for help.... i mean, im emo but i dont cut myself, and what now? you know what emo is like? emo is a style, just it ok? so dont judge what u dont know, or what u dont feel ok?


I don't cut for attention some do and don't like people like that ether

Why do you cut then?

In the minds, it's another way of letting out stress and whatnot.

There are other ways to release stress besides destroying your body.

Well said.

shut the f up u lying piece of shi*

I write poetry for attention.

Cutting is so stupid. I hate people who act like they have a problem that's worse than everyone else's problem. Most people have worse problems than them yet they cut. I've been bullied, I know what it's like to feel worthless, yet I've never cut or thought of suicide. There are starving African children who would rather be in cutters position. If you ask a cutter if they'd like to switch places with the millions of people who have it worse they'd most likely refuse. Cutting is a problem if you have been diognosed with depression or something . Not if your upset. Bottom line cutter need to GROW UP.

I understand your logic, but it still isn't applicable. The authenticity of our problems is not determined by the relative severity of our surroundings, but rather our coping mechanisms for dealing with them. What is heaven for some, might be hell for others. The bottom line is, there should be no personal judgement of one's situation that would keep you from reaching out to them. Even for people who do it for attention you shouldn't disregard them as being people who simply don't need help. Above all, arguing that someone doesn't have a right to be sad because others may have it worse, is no more ridiculous than arguing that someone doesn't have a right to be happy because others may have it better. Emotions are not harnessed with logic.

Although you say that it is acceptable for people who are depressed to cut, they cut because they are feeling pain, in some form, and cutting is their method of coping. People who do not have depression cut for the same reasons, and dismissing their feelings as fake, or just for attention can lead to depression. Believe me, I know.

Cutting is a way of not disturbing you with how 'little unimportant' problems. Seeking attention? Of course! That's why we hide do it in private, wearing long sleeves or pants, that's why we do everything in our power so you won't find out.

I was once a cutter, for about two years there wasn't a day where I didn't have a fresh wound somewhere. I would cut when I got frustrated, when I got sad, when I got lonely. But that was a while ago. I will be one year cut-free next month and you know what? Cutting is stupid. Looking back I realize how idiotic I was being. It the beginning it was all for attention, that's why the first scars are on my wrists. Anyone who cuts and has no actual mental condition screws over the ones that do need real help. People with disorders that drive them to cutting need help. So to all attention cutters, my past self included, stop. I'm ashamed of what I did and you will be too.

You, my narrow minded friend, are an idiot.

And how are they an idiot? All they're asking is for the Cutters to stop posting pictures of cuts online.

Well, you're ignorant.

God what is wrong with society and people these days? Yes some people do cut for attention but others dont. Others actually have mental illnesses and thats how they cope. Dont judge us all just because there are a few who fake it for attention

actually no they don't cut for attention

Then you hate me. I have 'Post-traumatic stress disorder' and i cut myself. I'm not an emo.. I just can't handle my feelings. The people who cut are strong youknow. They're still alive.

We don't do it for attention or why would we try so hard to hide it and also if we don't pretend to have problems im pretty sure no one cuts for attention why put yourself thru pain

sadly I do know someone that cuts only for attention, but that doesn't make us all like that.

If they didn't want attention they wouldn't tell people or make it so blatantly obvious

not all do. just the ones that actually do It for attention! POINT PROVEN!!!!!!!!!

How is that a point proven? If you cut, it's still very stupid. You're mutilating your own body. Get help and stop it. Now.

Us cutters are not attention seekers. Why would we do that to ourselves to get attention? We don't. When we cut, we try to hide it from everyone because we don't want to be called "emo", "attention seekers" and other things. So stop saying that people who cut just want attention, because we don't want attention, we want all the pain to go away. Thats it.

I know a girl who cuts and I thought your response was useful but I'm worried about her because I've seen the cuts ,she doesn't want to go to the councilor and sometimes when she doesn't have a blade she runs the cuts under water and re opens them. How can I help her without seeming patronizing?

Sparklebean, all that you can do is stay by her side. I was the same way, always cutting and re-opening my cuts, and all my family and friends were worried bout me and trying to get me to go get help. But I didn't want help at the time. So they keep telling me how all the scars will stay an how my children will see them and ask what they are and me not wanting them to know. Just tell your friend that there's more to life than hurting themselves and sooner or later she will stop because she will see that she has someone who cares a lot about her. Don't leave her side ever it she will just simply give up.

DO YOU TRY TO HIDE IT? OF COURSE YOU ******* DO. If you're cutting yourself and you want the pain to go away... you're just only causing more pain and more stress.

Really! You really need to be quiet. They are not looking for attention! This is just mean. Don't judge people, you have no clue what they're going through so just be quiet.

I judge them because what they're doing is stupid and pointless. You're mutilating yourself instead of dealing with the problems. The greats of history fought through their problems and became famous. Why can't cutters?

I understand where u r coming from but not all cutters only cut for attention! 99% of the time there is a reason other than that. so plz consider things b4 posting things that will offend people like me. with all do respect. =)

It's good that you've never felt this way. That means you haven't felt the pain. But I think its sad that you would consider this as a 'trend' or 'fashion' cause most of the time is not. I try to hide them cause I hate my scars. I don't want them on my body, I don't want to feel this way. But you will never understand until it happens to you. Behind every eye is a story, these people are slowly dying inside. I'm going through it and it's not funny at all. It's like living hell. Don't make fun of it cause it's beyond what you know. It's easy to know who's faking it, but hard to know who isn't.

I'm not going to attack you, I just want to know why. Some people really do have problems and they feel like a razor is the only thing keeping them sane. The cut to make sure the pain that they feel inside is real. Maybe you don't understand and that's okay, not everyone does. Just please think twice before you say you hate cutters. That's labeling. Thats like saying I hate all white people. Or I hate all hispanics. It just isn't okay and offensive to someone people. I don't support what you think but I do accept the fact that you entitled to your own opinion.



You must relax, some people just don't understand sometimes. It's just sick to hear but good to know they haven't been through it. I'm glad they don't have to feel pain. But shocked to see that they don't care.

Then obviously, there's something messed up. If you cut, you're hurting yourself physically and mentally even more. You have to deal with the problems instead of cutting. It's sick and useless.

i have depression,anxiety,anger i have to take medication for all this. and i cut. I DONT label myself as "emo" i consider myself danielle. but understand people go through very hard times. and you don't know their story. YES there are some attention seekers but not all are like that. I'm not going to call you names or anything i just want to let you know calmly and not trying to pitch a fight, nor am i mad just maybe try to get you to see differently. :)

u have no idea how it feels to be in so much pain, tht u cut to just cover up the inner pain! ur being stupid! DON'T TALK AGAINST SOMETHING U KNOW NOTHING ABOUT!!!!!! thank u so much, ur freakin triggering! damn it! u don't know us cutters! keep ur opinions to ur self!

Can you **** off! Thats all I have to say to you!

we don't want attention and don't pretend to have problems. And i have never head a person that self harms call themselves 'Emo'

This post is really pathetic because my honest opinion is right now your the one who's looking for attention.

How can you hate them when you don't even know them. If its such an attention seeking thing, then why do most of them always wear long sleeves and cover it up and get antsy when someone spots them. Can you tell me this? Some people actually do have problems and its their only way to cope. You have no idea what some people go through, so you have no reason to be speaking

The only thing i dont underatand is why you HATE them.. wouldnt you want to help us?, yes i cut. But that doesnt mean its for attention.. its because i feel like i deserve to be punished for being so worth, stupid, ugly, ect. But even when i didnt cut.. i still respected the people who did. I want to help people and make them happy because i want them to have that.. even if i dont.. please try to understand. And then maybe you wouldnt be so rude about it all.. all im saying is, dont criticize what you cant understand...

I agree, because you don't know what people go through and it ****** me off to know that there are so many judgemental ***** out there.

Hi, not be disrespectful or anything but, I cut and I'm not looking for attention. Some cutters actually DO do it for attention but, if I wanted attention, why would so many of us hide it with long sleeves in the middle of summer and not swimming on one of the hottest day of the year because they have cuts on the parts that show. How do you know they 'pretend to have promises' when you're not in their shoes? My story is this, I've been abused, bullies, heartbroken, depressed, and killed emotionally. I have OCD, many family problems, and all of the people I know hate me.

You have no heart, let alone have brain. It's absolutely none of your business and you are NO ONE to judge people who self harm. Who would "pretend" to have problems? Who would want attention because of self harm? That would only attract people like you, people that do not understand and never will. I hope you mature, I really do and that in the future when you have children and they are struggling, you can be there for them, without having to act like a total asshat.

<p>I hate you and i dont say anything, you dont eveen know what that persons that cut themselves pass, what they feel nor think. Do you think is funny that someone in the street comes with you and tells you "I hate you" and that person dosent eveen knows you? Well that is go million of people feel when they read this stupid post. Do dont know what that person is passing throung, you are only saying a lot of bullishit, please dont juzges persons that you dont eveen know, because words hurt too, words hurt more that anything, so please shut up, nobody ask for your opinion.</p>

hey, I guess everyone thinks differently about some things, but as I've met actually some people that do cut and as I've cut myself for quite some time, most of them do not do this for attention, they just need a way to cope with all the things happening each day. It doesn't matter if this is depression, bullying, anxiety, problems at home, an eating disorder, friends you need to take care of or just any other reason - they can't deal with any or all of this and so they try to find comfort and a way out. And some people start cutting. It doesn't make them attention seekers (and most try to hide their cuts and scars...), it doesn't make them freaks or anything else, they're just people like you and me, people with some serious problems and people who want respect and support. And believe me, it doesn't help if you tell them how stupid and pathetic they are.

For starters I cut and ik talk to people who cut we do not ******* cut for attention we cut to get rid of mental pain when we cut we forget are mental problems and pain so don't ever say we cut for freaking attention OK say again I will hunt you done and deal with

Telling someone to stop cutting is like telling someone with a broken leg to run to the hospital. It's painful and sad. But it's not pathetic or stupid

I cut one time. I didn't know what else to resort to. No one helped or noticed I was hurt. I'm not doing it again though. But does that make me pethetic? Worthless? Hated?

No it does not. Do not listen to this girl or anyone else what so ever. You are amazing and you are worth something. DONT EVER let people bring you down, because when they do, it only means your above them. (: You are loved. You are special. You are one in a million.

If we do it for attention, why do we always want to cover our bodies where the scars/cuts are?Unless you have experienced what myself and many others have experienced just shut up, you have no clue what it's like.

Who the **** are you to say that they do it for attention? and that they're stupid? maybe one of your colleges cuts too. Or maybe another person that you know well and like. you simply don't know. and you know why? because they usually hide it. and they do it very well. they have plenty of excuses when you ask questions. And most people believe all of them. cutters don't cut for attention. they cut because they have some serious problems. That can be rape or something serious but it can also be something as just can't live with yourself because they think they are too ugly to exist. and they're not definitely not, the people who call them they're ugly are. and the cutters usually dont really talk about their problems because they don't ave anyone to talk to or think that they have no one to talk to or just don't want to bother other people. that's why most people cut. and cutting is a serious issue it's a serious problem and WHO THE **** ARE YOU TO JUDGE THEM. they're already having a hard time.. so don't you dare calling a cutter ugly stupid worthless or an attention seeker! Selfharm is no joke......

i understand but there are a lot of people who do have things to worry about and deal with but i do know people who show literally everybody and its disturbing and triggering

I personally think that you should change your way of thinking. I think that teens cut because they feel the need of knowing that things do get better sometimes, or because they actually think they deserve the pain. It is not for attention at all. You should watch your mouth because your words may add up to the reasons why these teens cut themselves. Think before you speak next time, you don't know who you are hurting.

not all cutters are emo. if it was for attention we'd cut right in front of your face. we wouldn't try so hard to hide it from everyone. we'd tell everyone we saw that we did it. you don't know what it's like to walk in our shoes. think before you speak. you don't know what we've been through. it's way to relieve the pain we feel inside.

i'm the one who cuts because her parents left. ******* think about it before you speak. *******

wtf is wrong with you people? how would you feel if you were in this pain? so, i've tried to kill myself 4 times now. and to stop this i cut myself in stead, it's much better than leaving!!!

So you say I'm attention seeking because I cut? So why did I hide the scars and wounds for over 4 years? Why didn't I talk to anybody?
I have problems okay, like everybody has, I could understand it I've you'd hate me because I do this to myself and hurt other people with hurting myself, but you know that's ignorant, you know nothing about us! Most off us are depressed, because of ****, that happened in our past!
You say I pretend to have problems, so I've never been called fat, ugly and stupid, my dad never beat me and my mum is still alive, right? NO! ALL THAT HAPPENED!! And you're an ignorant *****, a murderer when you say I don't have problems, everybody has problems, you have some, doesn't matter what kind of problems! You got them, maybe you cry yourself to sleep, maybe you drown them in alcohol, maybe you talk to your friends, you do something because of your problems! Well, and I cut myself because of these problems!

I'm so sorry for everything. Don't listen to her, she's the only one who's looking for attention here.

Not all cutters are 'emo' or do it for attention.
Maybe you should be a little more educated on this subject before posting things on the internet?
Sure, I also know people who cut for attention. But they often don't cut very deep or repetitively and are really just messed up in some other way that causes them to feel the need to act tough adn seek attention.
Many people hide their cutting for years. It is a way of coping, just like drinking, drugs or sex. It releases endorphines which can become addictive.
People cut because they need to feel something, to have physical evidence or their pain or to release stress and worry.
Please don't continue to live in ignorance. All you have to do is type it into google to understand the pain some people go through.

We don't pretend that we have problems, we really have them and we cut because we can't deal with pain like you do.
We don't seek attention, if we do why would we hide it?
This really offended me.

stupid stupid.i wonder how you deal with your yeah,we can't do that. so we do it like this.<br />
for attention? hah, that's funny. you think that we cut and then show our arms because we want somebody to 'care' ? and by the way,i cut to, i starve to, i pop pills to, and i have a really bad depression. so please keep things like this to hurt people.

I will cut you.

Did you know i have depression, anxiety, get bullies, mom threatens to hit me, and my best friend died last month............. everyone deals with pain their own way....... get over it and keep it to yourself.


i cannot put my rage into words right now.
people who cut are not seeking attention.
no, they do not pretend to have problems.
they do so to relieve pain.
sure, you may not agree or like the way they deal with excessive amounts of pain, but
before you call someone stupid&an attention seeker, i'd like you to endure the physical/emotional abuse that these "attention seekers" go through on a daily basis.

I cut. I have blood dripping down my arm as I type but I don't do it for attention. I don't even put bandages on because people would be able to see under my school clothes. I am 14 years old. The longest I've been without cutting is 2 days. I'm trying to recover. I've seeked 'professional help' but that did nothing. SO ALL YOU PEOPLE SAYING WE DO IT FOR ATTENTION CAN GET LOST. I AM NOT AN EMO. VERY FAR FROM ONE. I'M A SASSY BLACK GIRL BUT WE ALL HAVE OUR PROBLEMS AND THIS IS HOW I CHOOSE TO DEAL WITH MINE.

cutters are cutting for a reason. Because of stupid judgemental people, because they already hace TOO MUCH ATTENTION with bullying, because people make them feel worthless, becuase they feel numb and all they want to do is remember that they can feel. The pain from one cut, shows cutters that they live. They have problems, they don't pretend. Life is getting to hard for them and they want to feel, they want to ounish themselves for being ugly/fat/worthless/NA ATTENTIONSEEKER..... and more. I hate that people don't see cutting as an addiction. It's bad and unhealthy, do you know how many people suffer and die from cutting? No? Yeah I thought so because you just don't care! Cutters already have their own problems it doesn't help when people like you only bring them mor down and call them annoying. Cutters don't go around and show their wrists and say hey I cut look. They hide their scars und clothes, they don't only just cut theor wrists because people could see. They cut their stomach, colar, shoulder or legs. Cutters are already dealing with too much pain and problems calling them things like you did won't help them recover. Cutters aren't always emo's, they're sad people who are dealing with so many problems like depression or bulimia. Just think what if someone just read this and killed themselves. What if your text was the trigger? Think before you say/ write something. Words hurt.

lol I have some typos but I was a "little" angry and wrote this in hurry. Yeah whatever...

Grow the f-u-c-k up, you don't no f-u-c-k all. So stop acting like you do.

Why? Because I speak my mind? And stand up for people? I will get professional help when you do.

I have help.

Trolling is NOT harmless. Saying people who cut, who have AN ACTUAL ILLNESS AND ADDICTION, are freaks and pathetic and attention ****** makes them feel worse about themselves. Because regardless of what every ignorant son of a dumb ***** thinks, cutting is an illness. You don't call someone with cancer an attention *****? Besides the fact that that is a physical illness and this is a mental illness, its basically doing the SAME DAMN THING. So how about you stop pointing fingers at those with illnesses and take a good, long look in the mirror. *******.

I cut my self once it wasn't my thing though but the point is I did it just to prove to my self that I was still alive that I wasn't just an empty shell that I actually had blood flowing under my skin and that I wasn't a ghost

Your amount of ignorance is disgusting. I am 15 years old. I am diagnosed with major depressive disorder. In addition, I self harm to cope with the pain I endure on a daily basis. As I type, that beautiful scarlet runs down my arms. Maybe it is ugly, maybe I'm the one that's disgusting. However, I will stop self harming, but you, you will always be this inconsiderate excuse for a human being. Don't criticise what you cannot understand. Have a fabulous ******* day.

You're so pathetic

Are you stupid or just brain dead? Have you ever considered they do have real problems? People don't take self harmers seriously. They don't realize how much pain they are actually in. Don't you realize how upset someone must be to drag a blade across their skin? Don't you realize how miserable someone must be to lock themselves away to burn themselves? Don't you realize how cheerless someone must be to raise their fist in the air and slam it against their body,time and time again until they are covered in bruises? No, you don't. You shouldn't disrespect those people, as they are quite obviously in so much pain. Don't tell them to do it. Don't say that it doesn't mean anything. They do it as a release, for that moment they forget all their problems,everything, all they can focus on is inflicting the pain. It's terrible, it's saddening, it's scary...I'ts self harm. Those two words, self harm, they're actually quite powerful if you really go into it. They are so miserable that they turn to harming themselves to get away from it. It's no joke, so don't treat it like one.

**** you... Some people do have real problems... If you don't get it, you should really shut up... Your not young... Think more! You should really think before you say anything...

I'm appalled by how ignorant you are.

Why would we try so hard to hide it if we are looking for attention?

that is totally bullshit. 'all they want is attention'. no they don't. poeple cut for a reason. Cutting as an escape to a person from what they feel inside. making the outside hurt as much as the inside. so don't judge people who cut. We don't judge you.

Please just stop i get it some people cut for no reason but most cutters have real life problems and you say that they all want attention is stupid u could lead to them cutting so just stop

People who cut have serious problems yes people do do it for attention but there are some people who do it because they are depressed you don't know there story so don't jump to conclusions.

Okay first of all its *Especially*. Now I want you to listen, because you don't know what you're talking about. Not everyone cuts for a good reason. Thats true, I will admit. But there is a vast majority that do it because of how they feel, or because somethings going on in their life that they don't know how exactly to handle. It can be a release. I would know, I WAS one of those people. I did it because my whole world was crashing down around me, and people were betraying me left and right. I felt I had no one to talk to, so all of that bottled up pain and emotion needs some kind of release right? For me that was cutting. Cutting reminded me I was there, I wasn't just fading away. I didn't know what else to do. Do I regret it? Yes of course I do. I realize that there were better ways to go about it, but its too late for that now. The point is, it can be something more than a desperate cry for attention. Its a coping mechanism, a poor one at that, but one none the less.

don't judge something you can't understand.

I am seriously surprised by the close-mindedness here. "Emo" is NOT a music genre. It's not even a word. And looking for attention? Whatever it is they're going through, it's obviously enough pain to want to bring a blade to their skin.

Love, Daniel.

wow... do you even understand what you're generalizing there? There are people out there who fake it, there are people who pretend, but there are also people who have serious issues and cut as a way to escape their reality, it's an addiction like no other. and please tell me that you did not really just refer to "emo" as a music genre??? LOL!!! your mistake, there's various differences in metal, and core, and then there's rock, screamo, but there is no music type called "emo" plus that is a name that people LABLE thoughs who cut themselves. now I will leave yo alone due to the fact that I don't particularly speak with ignorant people

Do you know what it feels like to hate yourself so much that all you can do to not kill youself is cut? Ever felt nothing at all so the only thing that makes you feel is cutting? No? Okay so thanks for your opinion but kindly **** off.

People are saying they hate you for writing this, but all you said was you hate people who cut and pretend to have problems. How do you feel about people who cut and have diagnosed depression, anxiety, etc. like me?

you are stupid, whoever thinks this should be able to spend a day in the life of a cutter and see what its like.

you are so ******* stuped you know??? i cut myself since i was 10 (today i´m 14) and NOBODY KNOW THAT OK? i don´t call myself emo! and not all cutters cut for attention!

Darling, you dont know what your talking about. Do you cut? No. Not all people "brag" about theyre cuts. Ive cut, I hide it. You dont know how it is. So shut up. Thankss ♥

People like you make me sick.

I cut. And I never call myself emo, or brag, or anything. Stop pretending like you understand.

I could never have respect of you.

Hey guess what idiot, I cut, and I do not call myself emo, or have ever been called emo. I look a regular teenager. I also try so hard to keep it hidden. I don't know one person who cuts for attention. NOBODY DOES! screw yourself. Self-harm is a ******* serious thing. I have been dealing with it for 2 years and have been in hospitals and seen several therapists for it. I know it is serious. You have no idea, ****.

Hey guess what! Self-harm, in a lot of cases, goes hand-in-hand with mental disorders. Y'know, those things in your head that you can't control? Yeah, those. So I do think you ought to think a moment before you claim that people who self-harm only want attention.


a girl with a mental disorder, and hates any sort of attention with a passion. <3

That's not true, people can be broken and you don't even know it and they cut themselves to get there pain out. Hold you breath till I can't anymore, you know that feeling you get when you can finally breath that's the same feeling they get when they cut themselves, so stop judging because they're human just like you, and everybody has problems but some resolve they're problems like that.

Hey guess what? You should stfu! I know someone who cut themselves......and well he isn't here today! You really think that? Something is seriously wrong with you. You know what makes it even worse I loved him and I didn't even know he cut, no one did. So maybe you shouldn't be so sterotypicial and stop with the hate and stupid comments. I understand the emo part though it is annyoing.

You're cool. You have no idea what people are going through. People self-harm because they are so full of pain. They self-harm to release it. Call me a "Stupid Emo" if you want just because I self-harm too. People who call themselves emo are EMOtionally disturbed. "All they want is attention." TOTALLY. Some people do. I'm not going to lie. "Pretend to have problems." Erm k. People who self-harm actually have a problem or disorder that haunts them or causes them pain. Like PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder). I have that and I cut because of it. Emotionally disturbed people are in a lot of pain that they can't vent very well. If you "hate" emos, you should really learn their stories before you judge them. A lot of self-harmers want to kill themselves because of judgmental jerks like you. Oh yeah, its especially. Not expecially.

no, you´re so ******* wrong. everytime i wake up i want to kill myself, and i hate me.
And i cut, and that´s okay, cause i´m addicted to cutting, and i smoke, and inject drugs, just to feel something.
And i bleed to know or feel that i´m alive, while i´m not.
So don´t you ever say that again, you´re so wrong! that´s bad.
