Dear reader, do you know why people cut themselves? I do. It’s because when someone has so much negative emotion built up, and you have no idea how to get it out, it’s the only release. I’m sure that’s not the case with everyone, some people maybe do it for attention, but this is the reason I can’t help but do it. The fact that people chalk it up to wanting attention only makes me feel like doing it more, I am so angry at myself. It’s really not as big of a deal as people make it out to be. It’s just a way of handling emotions.
Your family and friends wouldn’t freak out if you got scratched by a cat, so really what’s different other than the intention?
Although, if the motive is different, more harm could be done. For example, if this particular cutter had different intentions and really was crying out for help, that could become a dangerous situation. This is why I only trust myself.
