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.

Me: *Sees a photo of a person cuting them self with a description about how she is depresed, sad, nobody cares about her, and whants to kill her self*. You realy need help. Talk to your parents, go to therapy, thay know what to do.

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?

"it's a drug"
I'm so happy someone understands this. Thank you.


It took me ten years to stop cutting. If you cut, please get help.

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.

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).

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

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

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.

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.
