Growing up, I took most of these people to be nothing more than a bunch of slightly ignored people who slip up and cut near-wrist-areas(mostly) only in their pursuit to gain a little bit of attention every once in a while. We've all been there, it's true. We've all had our 'omg-my-life-sucks-and-pain-is-my-only-company' phase. I know I have had mine. But cutting causes pain- a hell lot of it, at that. Would anyone do it only for attention? I think not.
I was talking to my friend about it. He thought it was very funny;
"'she' doesnt care about 'my' felings, therefore i -will take a blade and very cleverly NOT slit my wrists but see blood and feel 'satisfied'-it's funny!"
Is it, really?
For some it may be a gimmick, agreed. But for most it is a medical condition.
They don't cleverly 'not slit' the wrists. The idea is not to die, it's not. It's to feel pain. Almost fatal pain.
It is less scary, more creepy, I think.
What is creepier is that I know people who are/were into it.
A lot of things hurt.
Hurt like hell.
Hurt like fuck!
It pains when things don't work out the way you want.
Doesn't cutting cause more pain, though?
Is the release of the pain through cutting worth it?
Is self destruction the way to go?
I don't judge, I don't,
I get scared though.
Very very very much so.
