You need it. by Ramen27 You need it. by Ramen27
I'm surprised to discover the amount of people who slice themselves up then post pics of it on the internet. I mean, obviously real stuff. Face it, fake blood isn't all that realistic.

What I'm saying in this stamp is, if you like to cut yourself up, you don't need a bunch of strangers on the internet giving you their approval or attention - you need help. Obviously, something is wrong with you. Cutting is not normal, or healthy, it's a drug. No one really needs to know HOW LIKE HORRIBLE YOUR LYFE IS and you really don't need their comments of ":sad face:" and "cheer up" or "you're beautiful", because in the end, it's all superficial and doesn't change or help a thing.

This can be said for anyone who posts pics like this of self-harm, or, those who post pics of their bodies for approval or attention.

Has anyone ever heard of Postsecret.com? It's a site where people mail anonymous postcards with their secrets on them. Here's one I thought many of the young girls (and guys) on deviantART should see and think about.

Thanks to ~stock-ings for the cut arm stock [link] - which is not real cuts.

You know what I really hate.

When you tell people that it's not exactly mentally AND physically healthy to cut and they should go see a therapist of some sort if they are suffering from depression,

and their reaction is this,

"iT'S MYY LIFE NOT URS DON;T TEL ME HOW TO LIFE IT U FUCKIN; MCBOTCH"

Which then makes me believe that they are in fact cutting for attention and they claim they are depressed for the most idiotic fucking reasons, like their ice cream fell on the floor BOO-HOO IM A FUCKING RICH GIRL WHO'S LIFE IS COMPLETELY PERFECT 100% AMAZING MY ICE CREAM FELL IM GONNA GO CUT MYSELF AND WHINE

My friend said she was turning emo... I had no idea if it was April Fools or not, because it doesn't seem she is afterwards. But the happy bubbly girl said it's fun to cut herself, and wore a black hoodie.

This is what needs to be said. Posting cuts on the internet and tagging iy with over 20 hashtags like #sad, #bands, hell, even #hottopic and saying "ITS NIT 4 ATTENTION!!2! ITS A SERIUS PROBLEM DONT MAKE FUN OFF MEH!!1245! :(" is utter bullshit.
In fact, in most social media apps/websites don't even allow you to post self harm pictures due to the fact that it might trigger other with REAL cutting problems.
(Sites like this include Instagram and Tumblr.)

if you really cut, then you would never show thousands of people on the internet. if anyone was to know, you would probably tell someone trusted about the situation for a little unprofessional help. Even then, you should still seek professional help. 

now, people who don't cut for attention cut for legitimate reasons, like if they have a mental illness, or they have very fucked up lives. they need to escape from it. maybe not the best way, but sometimes it's all they've got.

people who cut for attention, on the other hand, usually blame it on first world problems, or make some stupid shit up to make people feel sorry for them.

I' struggled with self harm for months, but I was honestly too ashamed to ever take pics of it; let alone show the whole world. Doing that is like romanticizing self harm and can be triggering-it's just wrong.

I also like how gentle this stamp is-instead of calling out the EMO TEEN LOZERS!! You were gentle and honest-self harm is not okay and is serious. Thank you

I don't cut, but I do have a weird nervous habit. Is it normal to have a bad habit of gently nibbling your hand? I do sometimes and I dunno why, it's kinda like how I bite my nails. It doesn't hurt...

People who post statuses or pictures of cuts/cutting online just seem like they're looking for attention. I understand there may be some exceptions to this, but seriously, most people who flaunt wounds on DA, Tumblr, or even Twitter are just attention grabbers.

I remember in SAW movie Jigsaw told one of his victim who was a cutter:
"did you cut yourself because you truly wanna die or do you just want some attention."

and yes some of them don't want to get help or anything only a attention.

Then they need help too. Both attention cutters and hidden cutters need extreme help. The ones who cut themselves that don't seek attention for it have something or have shitty lives, and all they can do to escape from it is cut. When I was like 14 I cut myself because I had two people that I loved so much were going thru stage 3-4 cancer. No, I didn't seek attention. I got help and now I'm completely fine. The point is, they both need extreme help. So if a person you know is doing self harm, you need to comfort them and be there for them, and ask for professional help for them.

People who cut for fun and attention are completely pathetic and needy. If someone is a real cutter then they generally tend to cut in places people won't see, like legs, lower back, and stomac. Now some do tend to cut on their wrists but when they do they make every effort to cover it up. I had a very close friend who was a cutter. When I found out I flipped and did all I could to help him. I am proud to say he no longer cuts himself and is a loving father

I know someone who cuts them-self, though I think she is doing it for attention. She says she isn't, and most of the time I believe her. I keep telling her to get help, but she says she doesn't need it... Is that wrong, or no?

Well hun, most of the time they won't want help from any part of society since it usually is society that is making them cut themselves. It will mean more to them in long run if the person helping is somebody they already trust. My cutter friend was that way. I recomend just being by their side and trying to help them stop. Try to show them, slowly, how wonderful of a person they are and do try to remind them every so often when you think they may be in a mood where they might cut that they are better then that. It is important to get them to talk about their problems.

Sorry if I am intruding. I just saw your question. Everything I have suggested is how I gpt one of my besties to stop cutting. I hope this advise can help.
