Just like alcoholics, drug addicts, and self harmers, they all have the same thing in common; they can stop any time, they just chose not to. YES, it IS addictive to them, but there's a difference between doing something because you can't help it, and dong something because you want to do it.
You say self harm revolves around your life like it's an achievement or something to be proud of. Sickening.
I have known way too many people who claim cutting is their only escape. That's a fucking lie. Talk to a friend, therapist, doctor, parent. Listen to music, watch nice videos or a cute kid's movie. There's a billion things that you can do besides cut your skin and cry like a pussy when nobody notices, so you go and do it again. And the idiots that post pictures of their cut wrists, are you REALLY going to stand up for them? No, you're not if you have a brain.
They are weak souls, and are ignorant and stupid in thinking they have no other choice.
Do not bother posting a reply back, I will simply ignore it. You are a fool and your clients need to go to a psych ward, or they need to shut the fuck up and get a life and stop cutting, punching, choking, or whatever.
Well I'm talking about normal people, NOT people with mental disabilities. Do NOT get me wrong. After all, my fiancÚ is slightly Autistic, I do not hate disabled people. Sometimes with Schizophrenia and Tourette's, self injury can't be helped. I know that they cannot help it sometimes.
But I'm talking about perfectly healthy people.
I am proud of my opinion, yes, it's you who believe it to be cruel. I call it being brutally honest and I hate how normal, healthy people have to fuck up their lives by self injury. Most healthy people DO injure themselves for attention. It's not the only reason, but a good logical reason is NOT depression or family issues.
Hell, I was mentally abused by my mother for 19 years, and I never cut, hurt myself, or even thought about it, because I'm smarter and stronger than that. I went to my friends, and I learned how to deal with it.
Also, people calling themselves Emo are basically promoting their depression and others' too. It's sick and wrong to make pain and grief a fad, wouldn't you agree?
Help is anywhere. Stopping pointless self injury can be done.
