No. Way.

I have been through hard times. I have known moments when I thought I was never going to survive. I have been on the edge of deep depressions several times, and those times lasted. I have even considered suicide. But I have never wanted or dared to take a knife and damage my body if my purpose is not to kill myself. Or even wondered what it feels like. I remember those times when I accidentally cut myself on a kitchen knife, and really, I can't imagine wanting to do that to myself on purpose.

I know people do it because it seems to be the only pain they can control. But in my opinion it's not natural to control pain. Pain is inconvenient. But it seems to be part of life. For some people even the bigger part of their life. If anyone could control pain he would want to make it go away, right?

Besides. I don't think we should damage our bodies. I admire the human body. It's insanely creative and ingenious. I have enough scars from falling out of trees, down the stairs, of my bike etc. already. I don't think I want any more.
