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.

People who cut and post it online in order to get a famous person to notice them or some shit like that are the kinda of people who do it for attention.

Most people however do not post it online and actually cut BECAUSE they can't get help. not everyone has the same access to help so you should judge them for that. Instead you should help and support them to get through whatever they are struggling with so that they may be able to stop cutting. So it's really not cool to claim that EVERY cutter is just "doing it for attention".

most people who cut because they have actual problems go to great lengths to hide it from everyone by either wearing long shirts, doing it on their legs, etc. they don't want sympathy. the people who cut like this and post pictures do it for attention which is fucking sickening. wahh, your mom didn't buy you littlebigplanet 2 and now you have to cut yourself to get attention. i was homeless for 3 months, not once did i bring a knife to my skin. people who cut for attention are making people with real problems feel like shit.

Exactly.
I've wanted to before as a suicide attempt, but I'm just too scared of the pain that would come with it. Yup, I'm just that weak.

Whenever I've said I was feeling depressed or having suicidal thoughts, I was never joking. I know those are serious problems and they aren't something to be used for getting attention. I hate that people would do that. Tbh, I've actually put a gun up to my head and told myself to pull the trigger. Though, it was soon after being rejected by someone I really like (and still do), so I wasn't exactly thinking right.
Still, feeling suicidal or hurting yourself isn't funny or cute. People need to stop using it as reasons to get people to care about them. If they seriously feel that way, they need to find help. I know it's hard, but they need to try.


Now, I must go whine about how horrible my life is and post depressing stuff all over the internet and hope someone will make me feel better even though nobody cares and I'm, like, so hated everywhere, omg, everyone wants me to diiiiee. ;n;
(jk, and I'm sorry if this offends anyone who uses the internet to vent or get real help. I'm not making fun of that. I'm just messing around here. XD)

Girl: i hate my life. I want to kill my self. No one loves me, no one cares about me and there is nothing you can do about it.

Me: then why are you posting these if no one cares?

Basically in the basic way that it makes one feel better for a bit, but I started needing it more and more. It releases endorphin or some shit. For me, I started "using" more an more. More frequently, deeper cuts, sharper knives. It becomes an addiction and I've relapsed a lot (kinda gave up on stopping tbh, too lazy).

I can only speak for myself, and my own experiences obvs. Maybe not the exact definition of  a drug, but there are some addictive qualities to it.

I see. But it's kind of strange since it's painful (or this isn't true ?). Did the pain made you feel better ?

CuminPizza Featured By Owner Feb 4, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yeah it's painful. For me it helps in a way lol, easier to deal with physical pain. It helps me release anger. I guess for others, the good feelings that come along with it are worth the pain. It is super easy to fall back into since materials are always around (sharp objects).

:iconsonicandwarriorsfan1:
Oddly enough, for me the pain wasn't worth it at all. I hated the pain. It was seeing the blood come out that made me feel better.
Thank god, I've since stopped; I got caught and well....

Reply
:iconsonicandwarriorsfan1:
Pfffft. It was super-awkward and really tense. Yeah, my parents were emotional too....

See, I got caught by a friend, who made me hand over the knife I had, and went to my counselor, who talked to me and called my parents. :s

I'm glad I stopped before it got too addictive, too. I was too scared to ever cut deep enough to draw much blood, anyway. Which is good.

finally an stamp that talks about an issue I always hated online, but not only about pictures but also their journals and their posts. I trully hate it when people post very serious problems such as "my step mother tried to kill me", "I tried to kill myself a year ago", "I was arrested", "my father beats me up", "I don't want to live, my life sucks", "I cut myself" and instead of working on them or sharing them with people who actually know them and can help them they choose to do it in front of hundreds of online strangers from other places of the world who little can do about it. The worst part is when those strangers try to give advice they reject them and say stuff like "there's nothing you can do about it, my life already ended, please leave me alone" 

These stuff already hapenned to me and I wonder why on earth you share your problems with total strangers in the first place if you aparently DON'T want help?? Why you want to stress and worry people who have nothing to do with your issues and who are also dealing with their own personal dramas offline?

Once one told me she was "joking"

I still wonder how the hell that was funny :stare:

Others who apologize and then again share the same pictures or comments, then apologize again and again...

I hate it how people can go that far for atenttion and is offensive for those who are facing real pain and dramas, like some of my close friends who have real problems, they hardly talk about it unless they are with trusting people, not online strangers. :stare:

ThankyouThankyouThankyouThankyouThankyou. 
It honestly infuriates me. 
Like, I'm great with sympathy and empathy, but I only give it to those that need advice and help. Those that come to myself, or someone else for help. Not those who brag and flaunt it to everybody.
And I absolutely loathe how 'in' it is to self harm and claim that you have depression and/or anxiety. 
It's so ridiculously praised and encouraged now a days.
They're not normal. They're not ok. They need sorting. They need help. 
Goodness darn thankyou so much XD

I want to cut, but I'm too much of a fucking pussy that someone will send me back to that damned mental camp thing. I just like seeing blood (yes, I'm edgier than a square), and pain helps me relieve emotional shit. I've been in therapy for two years, been in a mental camp for two weeks last year, and nothing is helping.
But that doesn't mean I post my bite marks on the internet.
Nobody wants to see that shit. It's nothing but depressing, and certainly isn't helping anything. Grow the fuck up.

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
