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 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.

This wasn't attacking those who self-harm.

It was TELLING not attacking those who posts pictures of their cuts on social media to get some real help, not the superficial paragraph love ramblings like.

"omg bby i love you <3 how can you do this to your beautiful body blah blah blah."

I'm not saying I don't agree or I cut for attention (cause I cut before)

But these stamps are pissing me off now -_-

Its feels like most stamps are more bitching then explaining its wrong
And some people don't post on the internet for attention, some friends or anyone (like family) my be only contact online

Explain the fucking okay reason for stuff like this then bitching how its attention whore if someone post cut images online for any reason

I better get a good reply if someone is gonna reply to me

ANYBODY who has, at any point, done this to themselves, is mentally ill and needs help. Don't deny it. If you, in the past, grabbed a knife and then made cuts into your skin and ENJOYED the pain, YOU ARE INSANE because this is extremely abnormal.

I am mentally I'll, and have cut before, but insane is slightly offensive to me

cutting and other forms of self harm are literally cries for help
please seek shutting the fuck up
You....are amazing. This site I used to go on everyone would like post depressing shit and even type where they cut and then I'm like "if you feel the urge to cut yourself, get some help. Because telling the fucking workd won't make it better. Or if you're depressed read a book or something." I'm not against people who cut themselves (it's pretty sad actually) but they shouldn't post it on the internet! Attention whoring much XP.

I hate when "normal" people can't deal with real mental diseases or sadness. What is wrong with seeking attention? EVERY FUCKING ONE NEEDS ATTENTION, the human is a social animal who needs attention, and yes, every single cutter need help, and of course they seek attention, because they feel that they can obtain that help through that attention.

Yeah, not all of them have depression, mostly are teenagers who are just facing hard times due to their age and maybe having a minor depression, but that doesn't make their feelings fake. I was (am) a cutter myself, I never felt proud of it so never showed pics of it and always hid the wounds and scars (I still do), but I did (do) it because that was (is) the only way to forget the mental pain, and I did know that if someone knew it, they would try to help me and stop that little "pleasure" that I had. Yeah, i didn't want the attention, but this people are begging for help by showing their cuts.

So instead of doing this shitty stamps or saying "Hey you attention whore, stop cutting yourself, nobody cares", do something that really could help those people or just ignore it, since you are just going to make it worse.

That's not what this person is saying at all. They are simply saying that rather than getting a bunch of superficial attention that won't help at all, the person should seek real help so that they can actually heal and get better. It is true that a lot of the people who seek superficial attention are in fact attempting to seek help, just not knowing exactly how they should be going about doing that. This stamp is simply trying to point them in the right direction, not tell them their feelings are worthless.

I should know, I used to cut, and I hid the cuts and scars for a long time. But finally it got to a point where even the cutting wasn't helping the mental anguish I was going through, and finally I poured my heart and soul out to a friend I trusted at school. They convinced me to seek real help, and as opposed as I was back then to 'brain doctors' as I called them, I agreed. They talked to my school councilor, who talked with my mother, and once a week I would go see a psychologist. No drugs or anything, just someone who could help me see why I was feeling the way I was feeling, to help me understand how my brain was working and what it was reacting to. Because of that I no longer cut, I no longer see a psychologist, and I am able to direct my brain and emotions, rather than having my brain and emotions direct me.
