The lot of you are really monters, you know that? Personally, I don't think cutting is nice, and I don't understand it, but I've never done it in all my days of depression. I can't judge someone who does cut.

Keep these things in mind:
- Cutting =/= attention whore
- Cutting =/= annoying emo kid
- Cutting =/= stupid

Albeit there are people out there who do cut for attention, not all do. If you want to judge, take on their mindset, their demons, and their life. See how it works out then. Assholes.

Seriously, depression is a real illness, cutting yourself is stupid. Your situation doesn't make a difference. Cutting yourself won't do **** for real depression.

You've obviously never been to that dark point of the human psyche. I am an ex-self harmer, and it took me two years to beat it. It's not the pain you get addicted to as such, it's the rush of endorphins that follow the pain.When you're severely depressed and can't be brought out of it with a couple words, you'll take any coping method that works. Even if it's self detrimental. That's why others turn to drugs.

What do you have to be sad about?    
There are 86 million people in Ethiopia, and not one of them is depressed. They've got 			****		 to be sad about. Or rather, they don't. They don't have anything. And they aren't depressed.

What I have to be sad about is my own business. Don't compare me to other people, either. Just because they're not sad doesn't mean I can't be sad. On top of that, yes. Some of them are depressed. If you can prove that each individual there is happy, then +1 internets for you.

My psychologist told me there are three main reasons people cut.
1: If they are experiencing a lot of pain, they gain control over the pain, which is a very satisfying feeling
2: They are doing it for attention, although not in an attention whore kind of way. Just they feel that people will take them more seriously if they do.
3: Just because of straight-up fascination with blood and the idea of cutting.

With facts out of the way, I can state an opinion.
Is cutting stupid? Yes. Are people who cut stupid? Hell no.

I didn't say people who cut are stupid.

I know, but I'm just saying that as an opinion because a lot of people think people who cut are stupid.

Actually, cutting IS stupid.

Being someone who has depression and suffers from it, I know that I would rather be rid of the pain rather than have visual scars that I inflicted upon myself reminding me of why I was depressed in the first place. I want the reason(s) for my depression to be gone, not painfully staring me in the face everyday.

What is accomplished by cutting? You're not making the pain go away. In fact, you're making more. You're not solving anything, and you're only making life even worse.

I know that. And I agree with your reply for the most part. I just don't believe any of you assholes have any right to tell these people to die or cut deeper. Let people cope however the hell the want to.

Wait a minute. Why am I being called an asshole? I'm not mocking or laughing at people who cut. I just think it's a very asinine way of coping.

Please don't tar me with same brush as those who are actually making jokes.

Many of my friends have actually come to me when they've wanted to hurt themselves. I always do my best to talk them out of it, starting off by being very stern (like my first reply to you), and then do my best to cheer them up until hopefully it's out of mind. I've stayed up for hours and almost missed classes some nights because my friends needed my help and I promised I wouldn't leave until they felt better.

<-- MFW They said they are feeling better and won't hurt themselves after talking.
