Cutting yourself releases some hormone or whatever in your brain. It's to dull the physical pain, however it's addictive. That's one reason people are cutting themselves.
Also, cutting yourself, leaves you focused on the physical pain rather than the emotional.

I fully understand it, but regardless, I think it's stupid. It's no way to handle any situaton and I believe the same thing with drugs. There is always someone who cares for you, and regardless there are people who care for everyone or at least someone you care about that you can talk to about it, think it out yourself and otherwise. I've wanted to kill myself many times but I've always told myself to quit being a bitch about it, things will get better and I shouldn't take the easy way out. Ofcourse, everything DID get better and I would say I'm quite happy. I think that's why it pisses me off.

I know right?
I love how everyone here is like: "Hurr durr, physical pain is for pussy-ass faggots. I'm all tough **** and stuff. That kind of faggotry will never happen to me".
I never ******* cut myself before, but I think you are all missing some pieces of the puzzle here. You have no idea what the girl has been thorugh, you just focus on "You're emo, you're a fag" type of logic. Stop and think for a second guise. If my kid was cutting himself/herself I would try to search for help, but knowing he/she would face that kind of prejudice later would hurt me more than everything.

Tl;dr get your head out of your arses please.

I know everyone has their own story, but... there's so many things others can do. When my sis got cancer I got depressed thinking that there's nothing after death, and it put a hollow feeling in my chest, and still does. It didn't help I was a little fatty that got bullied everyday emotionally and physically. Instead of cutting I ran, started listening to metal, and worked out. Now I get made fun of for trying too hard in gym, but I just smile at the irony now. But who cares on funnyjunk anyways.

Well, who needs to care? Is it not better that FJ doesn't indulge people's bids for pity and escapism, preferring rather to scold them or ignore them? People need to be made to understand the self-destructive nature that kind of mentality builds. Not everyone has the strength of character to channel their feelings of sorrow and inadequacy into making themselves better people on their own (granted, they should do but it's subjective.)

FJ teaches with the rod, not the carrot.

Cutting is an addiction that releases hormones to make you feel good.

Instead you should confront it and take the emotional pain of it to be a stronger and better person after the experience is over.

Courage is the ability to confront fear, pain, danger, uncertainty, or intimidation.
Physical courage is courage in the face of physical pain, hardship, death, or threat of death

inflicts pain on self to consider themselves courageous

that's just ******* stupid

Its not courageous, but it takes courage risking your own life. The same goes with suicide, it takes a lot of courage doing something in such a forcefull matter with all that fear swollen up inside you.

Acting against your fear is courageous. Do you think people arent scared when they are about to commit suicide?

You severely misunderstand. It's not courage, it's weakness.

You are unable to cope with the world as it is so you find a release, a release that happens to be cutting. It's not about courage, it's about running away from your problems causing you an addiction and ending up putting you in a cycle that only gets worse.

Courage is the ability to face the problems in your life with a smile and a joke. It's a strength of heart to put others before yourself. Rather than indulging in your own wish for self-pity and sympathy you prefer to make other's lives better through kindness.

To act against fear doesn't take courage. It takes conviction. Courage is conviction + selflessness.

Nah, I can see where you were coming from. Self-harm would be courageous if it was for the sake of others. Sacrifice and all that.

Otherwise you could say it took courage for me to pointlessly punch that wall and break my knuckles, rather than simple misguided conviction.

i dont know. In my mind, the ability to be scared to die but still be able to do it would take a lot and not something weak-minded would easily do since they would be too scared to do ******** and give up.

i knew someone who was never courageous and tried to kill himself, but he was too scared and couldnt do it.

But you are correct, im using the wrong words to say so.

Aye. The difference between the selfish decision to jump off a bridge and the selfless decision to jump on a grenade is the deciding factor.

Still, was not expecting a reasonable conversation. Good on you. I've noticed that the FJ userbase has been becoming steadily more mature over time since I joined a few years back. Maybe it's just people growing up or maybe it's the FJ sense of community changing to reflect a more mature atmosphere on the site.

(Note: By mature I mean the ability to distinguish between the right and wrong times to be serious and silly, not a reliance on the serious. People who are too serious are just as immature as those who are too silly in my books. FJ seems to be getting the right balance these days.)

I was wondering if it was dopamine, but thought it couldn't be, since dopamine functions like a reward center. Like when do something nice (eat or something) it releases dopamine to signal the brain, that this is good, do this more.

I have tried it once when life had gotten really ****** for me.
(Family + School problems, long story m8)
Before doing it I could not understand why people would do it to themselves, but a lot of people do it so there must be some reason behind it right?
Well one night I got especially drunk and my problems hit me hard and I thought yeah I may as well try it.
Damn what a rush it was, I was pretty stupid though. Did it with a serrated knife. -_-
I realized why people do this stuff. It has nothing to do with wanting to commit suicide, more as a way of coping with the feeling. Because deep down you know sometimes life is great.
Next day, damn it hurt. But no worries since I washed it real good everyday and it cleared up quickly. It left scars though, sorta makes it worse since every time I look at them they remind me of my problems.
When I get depressed I still want to do it again, since it felt relieving last time. However I just try to shake it off as I regret it the next day.

In other words you'd prefer to beat the **** out of someone that picks on you.

I can understand how you'd see that as a better solution than cutting, and I partially agree.

That said, to a cutter, even beating up the person who picks on them doesn't remouve the emotional pain that that person caused. And the reasoning just gets more complex from there.

It has a lot of angles, basically if you have to ask then you'll never really know and you should be happy about that.
Basically, emotional pain is hard to control. People like to feel in control.
People who get desperate will harm themselves because it distracts them, they can control it, and it releases endorphin's.

When physical pain like that occurs, the brain releases chemicals to help with healing, and some part of this release also dulls most emotions as well. I forgot the specifics, but the general idea is that the physical pain makes the brain stop being so emotional for a little bit. Something like that.

Some people have genuine medically verified mental problems that cause them to cut

For the most part, people who cut are basically people who think they have medical problems when really they just can't handle life and don't understand that people aren't nice.

If they have a medical problem they should not be cutting. They are called "medical problems" for a reason.

It's not really justifying it.
It's showing what people's stupidity (the suicidal person in this) can do to their family.

I think it is, as I was suicidal before. But then I realized that if I killed myself, I would hurt people way more than how I was feeling. If it's a medical problem It's not stupid. My step-mom killed herself because of stuff like that.
Really, wanting to kill yourself is a very, very selfish thing to do, and if you want to do it, you need to get out of your own little world where you think you should have everything. Life is hard, deal with it.

I'll go wtih drldrl on this one. It is your life and you can end it whenever you want to, but doing so without thinking about how this will affect the people around you is an action that speaks only selfishness to me. That person thinks only about their problems and doesn't seem to grasp the idea how he/she will **** up the people who love him/her's lives if he committed suicide.

To me knowing how you'll affect the people who love you and still doing it is even worse than thinking you're all alone and doing it.
Look, I think many of the people here have contemplated about suicide on their rougher days. I myself have thought about it many times, but I know I will absolutely **** up the lives of my family if I do it. This is what suicide is all about - it doesn't affect you as much as it affects the people around you.

If by that you mean everyone will die sooner or later, I suppose you're right.

I'm saying it's his choice. People can try and stop him but if he ultimately decides to do it there's nothing no one can do. Sometimes you have to think about yourself and what you're feeling, and if the pain is unbearable well then there's that. Death is something no one wants to deal with but is something that's going to happen eventually. If a person really doesn't want to continue with life and is constantly trying to kill themselves, do you think that's doing any good? To both parties?

I think this is exactly how this conversation started in the first place. Indeed, a person has their own life in their hands and its their right to do whatever they feel with it, I doubt anyone wouldn't agree with that. And I agree with you that if the pain is unbearable and the person wants nothing but to free himself from that burden, it's his right to do so. But we both know life sooner or later gets better. It sucks most of the time, but there is this point when it generally gets easier for you to handle /you get help, friends, a purpose in life, you name it/. So in my honest opinion, no sugar-coating, no fancy words, I think only a weak-willed person would choose suicide when he/she knows life is indeed going to get better.

But will it? Will life actually get better? Because sometimes, no matter how hard you work, you'll never get that promotion. That buisness you spent your whole life savings off won't take off. Everyone gets treated differently. And for some people, just some people, life doesn't get better. And sometimes it never will.

If we're talking about, lets say, a 40 yo person with no successes in his life and a generally depressing daily life, then I might agree with your point to a certain extend. However, I will never be tolerant towards a teenager who has suicidal tendencies. That person has their whole life ahead of them and it really speaks low of them if they don't even try to find out what will happen down the road.
Moral of this whole conversation: I do agree and disagree with you at the same time. It really depends on whether or not we're talking about teenagers or actual grown ups who have had their fair share in life.

my sister's friend was a cutter. Her medication made her super depressed to the point of which she would cut herself. She couldn't stop taking the medicine or serious health risks would develop. She killed herself 8 years ago. To this day, that is why my sister grace refuses to be called "gracie".

yea i think that's true at times. Some people are way to sensitive, and hop on the I hate myself train.
Then there are other cutters who deal with real emotional **** ( rape, drugs, abuse), that don't turn to drugs but instead cutting. I mean I think in extreme situations cutting can be understood, but i don't understand people in high school who start cutting because one person called them a butterlard.

I'm a male who went through an actual depressive period where I was locked up in a mental ward of my local hospital after almost jumping off of a building and being talked down by the police.

I spent months going through CBT to try and be "happy" again but whilst doing this I cut myself every now and then. You have no idea how good it is to release the pressure people place on your shoulders by doing it, placing what's going on in your head and releasing it onto your body (I know I just sound like some douche emo).

However I never put pictures on Facebook and didn't tell and brag about it and whilst still in this period there were two people (one boy, one girl) who posted photos on Facebook and put up statuses like "having a bad day, so I've started again lost a lot of blood ". One of them even had their middle name as "Emo"
It made me unbelievably angry seeing this because these people see being a "cutter" as a social stamp of coolness and they're the scum of the Earth as far as I am concerned.

I agree with your point to an extent. The faggot posers can go **** themselves, but sometimes there are people who have genuine problems. You can't just tar them both with the same brush

I think that the people (who have actual problems) understand that cutting isn't good for them, but it seems to be their only escape. I am, like you said, tarring them with the same brush. I more mean to aim my orignal comment at the people who cut them selfs and brag and show other people like its a badge of honor.

I had girlfriend who used to cut. After I broke up with her, she started again and started posting facebook statuses about how much blood was lost that time, and other ********. She did it for attention, and that really bothered me.

The reason that bothered me so much was because I had a close friend who had some mental issues with anger and sort of extreme levels of emotion, she honestly turned into a demon. She had to go to the mental hospital for a while and she came back kind of broken. She started to cut, and when I found out I was honestly angry. I convinced her to stop and she did. My friend had problems, and no other way to get it out. I get it.

Which is why people who cut on their legs, and wear short shorts to purposefully show them off, really make me angry. They do it for attention, to be cool. It makes light of what some people go through.

we "tar them both with the same brush" so everyone knows it's a stupid ass thing to do and that there isn't any good reason to do it. Doing anything less just encourages other dumbasses to do it as well.

You're clearly speaking from point of view of some who has been depressed. I'm not saying it's a good idea to do it and I regret it now. People who see the scars look at you like you're broken or something and it's really hard to explain to new people. All I'm saying is that some people are cunts who do it for attention, some aren't. Don't judge people when you haven't been in their shoes. It's basic courtesy.

I think it doesn't come from emotional damage points per se but the ability to cope with stuff. My gf has cut herself aswell and I know she takes everything alot harder than me or other people who don't. That said, just because some people cope better doesn't mean the vulnerable ones' problems aren't serious.

TL;DR People take **** differently

Some get so sad they their brains genuinely confuse their emotional pain with real pain, and its horrible. Cutting themselves 'blocks' those receptors. Hurting themselves make them feel that pain; not the pain their brains make them feel.

Real pain is better than Sad pain. Sad pain is deep in your gut, and it hurts more than anything. It brings confusion and loneliness. Feeling real pain helps them distract from their sad pain. Real pain hurts your wrist, very superficially. Sad pain hurts where you can't hold it, and biting your lip wont help like it does with real pain.

It isn't a simple thing at all.
Take a moment to consider exactly why there is no single answer for your query, please?

Everyone. Is. Different.

For some people, it may be a histrionic endeavour.
For others, they may enjoy it, for any number from dozens of reasons.
Some may be mentally ill.
Some may find it helps them cope with their issues.
Some may find it is a controllable release for anger.
Some may find that it can be a totally private escape from others' control.

So on, and so forth.
There are millions of different reasons why people will do it. It will not stop. It is not always bad.
It is certainly never something which should be encouraged (perhaps in some special cases, where the only alternative is worse, but you know what I mean).

It's like racism.
You can't group everyone with one, single, minor attribute together like that. Especially when it comes to touchy subjects like this.

Ignorance is disgusting, and leads too easily to offence through presumption. One should educate oneself and put thought into a subject before one speaks about it...
