My confession is, I think it's ok to cut yourself. If you cut yourself to relieve the pain it's ok. So many people do it without the intent to kill themselves. I would try to stop someone if I knew they wanted to kill themselves. If I found out they did it to deal with things, I wouldn't say anything. I used to cut to deal with my pain. It felt sooo much better after I did and that was the only thing that helped. Everyone is different and I think that is just a way for people to handle things. I don't think they need help anymore than everyone else does. I mean we're all a little whacked. How can someone say it is unhealthy when it's just not the way they were made. I don't cut anymore because I don't feel the need to. I think most people eventually stop. This is just my confession and thoughts. I'm not trying to debate or change anyone's mind.
I thought to make a post because yesterday I was having lunch at a skate park and a young girl like 13-16 was there. She was talking to two guys and they saw her wrist cut. They were going on and on about how she needs to stop and get help. She didn't want to and said that's just how she deals with things. I was sad that someone so young had so much pain, but then again I did too. I do wish they would leave her alone though. They just made things worse. She looked flustered and sad and I doubt she magically just stopped.
