This is so true
I might be different but, I was a cutter because I had no idea how to process any negative emotions I would freak out and panic and cutting was how I worked it out. But the second people found out I was suddenly an emo attention whore. It was so confusing to me that people wanted me to stop but at the same time make me feel like crap for doing it at all.

My girlfriend used to cut herself...I didnt really understand why. I do know that since we started dating I made her promise me that she wouldnt hurt herself anymore. She said that she would struggle with it and I told her I would be there for her. I helped her by giving her advice and helPing her with her emotions. And it turns out that all she needed was someone to be there for her. We broke up and now I'm afraid that she will start hurting herself again. What should I do??

The easiest thing to do is to continue to be there for her, you're ex's now but that doesn't mean you can't remind her you still care.

i honestly thing the biggest misconception about SH is that people do it for attention :/ yes there are SOME people that do it for this reason but most never let anyone see them.. most have 1 person that they trust that knows but they try to hide them from everyone else..

LIFE GOES ON AGTER EVERY CUT I MAKE.

LIFE GOES ON AFTER ALL THE BLOOD IS GONE.

You bleed just to know your alive.

Death is God's way of saying you're fired. Suicide is humans way of saying you can't fire me, I quit.

I'll take that as a compliment, even though it isn't one, I'm just going to boost my ego a bit more.

Thank you everyone that has also expressed positive comments, it's much appreciated!

I am not sure if it counts, but does it count that I bite and punch myself? I don't cut, but I just hit myself in the head.

Anything that you do to hurt yourself deliberately is classified as self harm, so yes it counts.

I think we can add that self harm isn't only cutting, it could be burning, head banging, punching walls, slapping, stinging, and starvation might also fit in.

follow me, You need to find something alternate to cutting for the sake of it. Try running, or a high endorphin rush sport/activity.

This is a great post, and it really helps me understand it a lot more.
There's a girl in our ballet class that cuts herself. I know because I caught her cutting herself in the changing room one night after class. I've tried to make friends with her, but she keeps to herself. We've invited her to parties and things after class, but she always declines. I wish I could help her in some way, cause she is an excellent dancer, and has helped tutor me when I started doing pointe!
