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.

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.

Cutting is not courageous, it's actually the opposite. Glad that you didn't get into that destructive habit, I hope you're doing great (:

THIS.
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.

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.

I have nothing against people with depression, but why the heck would they take a picture of their cuts? I fell bad for them, depression doesn't seem all that fun, but really, most of them are  probably doing it for ATTENTION

Dude, that is very ignorant. do you think going up to a person saying: "Hey! I cut myself, Im sad, Please help me!" is easy? No, its fucking not. I do see your point and yes people like that exist but, there are people who actually do it because they seek help. I hope I got my point across to you.

The people that really get on my nerves are the people that go to their "friends" and complain, by friends I mean followers on the internet... Instead of complaining about it to everyone else selfishly, go and get help from some one who knows what they're doing, if you want nothing but sympathy and do nothing about the situation, is it really an issue?

Thank you, I'm glad you said this. I'm so sick and tired of assholes like this saying that people cut for attention or other bullshit. 90% of the time they don't. If they wanted attention I'm pretty sure they wouldn't be wearing bracelets, bands or long sleeves to cover their scars. I know several people who did/ possibly still cut. They're not attention whores. Unlike the idiots writing these ridiculous statements they have actually been through a lot of crap in their life. Like I said probably a lot more than people complaining about this. They're getting fucking help, shut your mouth already and quit bitching about something you know nothing about; how ignorant must you be to say something like this? I know people who saved their own lives because cutting was enough release for them to fight through another day.
And I know the maker of this stamp was talking about the people who just do it for attention. But by the other stamps I've seen by them I'm pretty sure this includes real cutters too. So many of their stamps telling people to stop expressing their opinion, yet this person is expressing theirs...
Those of you who mock others when you know nothing about them, their life or what's going on in their life need to grow the hell up. This is disgusting.  The problem isn't people who cut. It's ignorant assholes like you. Congratulations. :thumbsup:
