Self Harm.

I've been debating whether or not to post this, but anyways.
Okay so I've come across a few forums about why people self harm and stuff like that lately. However, the replies on the forums did annoy me slightly. I seen people implying that people do it for attention, they do it for stupid reasons and so on.
I, however, have dealt with self harm. I hate admitting it, but i did. I had been going through a lot at the time and felt as though I couldn't tell anyone.
I have no father, he left when i was a baby, my mother is usually always annoyed, and I had just started secondary school and didn't know the teachers well enough to talk to them. Also I didn't have very many friends.
I had heard some people online talking about some thing called 'cutting' to relieve them of any issues they had. It seemed to work for them, so stupidly i assumed that it would work for me. So I tried it. It never helped me feel better at all, so I kept trying, thinking i was doing something wrong.
My friend noticed my scars one day in school however and brought me to the school counsellor. After I spoke about my problems, I felt much better. So please, think twice before you call someone an attention seeker or idiotic for inflicting self harm.
The point is that maybe they have no one to turn to. Maybe they think that self harm is the only way, like i had thought it was.
And to those that do self harm, I would suggest telling a friend or a parent or someone. Anyone at all. Even if you think they don't care, like when I thought my mother wouldn't care, they really do care. My mother came home in tears when she found out what i had been doing to myself.
Thank you for reading.

Some people do self harm for attention, though.




"You know what you are? Selfish. I've done nothing but sacrifice to get us here, and what have you sacrificed? Nothing. Zero. All you've done is boss me around - well now who's the boss? Who's the boss? It's me."

I realise that, but even so.
I just dislike when people assume that others are just attention seeking when they don't know their story behind the self harm.

Not everything is done for attention.
People actually go through things.

[/quote] [quote="Shaz1302"] Yeah man, I know how you feel.
I usually try to stay away from these forums, though, just because people get really hectic and I'm not to into the whole cutting topic, but you did have a good point in this.

Notice how I said some.
I didn't say everyone does.
I know this topic well since I help my teachers at school and stuff with this, not to mention I did a whole research project.
And not to mention people go all willy nilly cutting themselves because of things such as Cut for Bieber.
There are people called "attention cutters".
Some people do cut because they're depressed though, which is bad.

It's emotional, depression thing that most people don't get.
It doesn't relieve pain but it helps forget emotional pain and replaces it with physical pain, Emotional pain is worse to some people.

Not really sure in all honesty o.o"
In my case it made me feel worse than I felt before.

I tried cutting myself once when I was really depressed, and it just hurt a bunch. e.e
