Self harm is not funny. Even people who make the tiniest scratches on themselves matter. Because it will get worse.
Thats something thats almost certain.
So, they might start out when they are feeling really low or angry, a tiny cut on their arm, leg, or any other part of
their body. Once they've done it a few times, its
very, very hard to stop. People get addicted to it. They need to to help them sleep, or it calms them down. Soon they'll
be slitting their wrists without even a second
thought. Not all cutters are suicidal, but some are. If your friend cuts, or anyone you know, they don't need your SHIT,
they need your HELP.
Sometimes cutters will wear long sleeves, if they don't want anyone to know about it. And sometimes they wear short
sleeves, because they don't care or they
want everyone to know they cut. A lot of them are asking for your HELP. And, say at school, if someone finds out you
cut, your get teased and it becomes a game for
them. That is NOT the right thing to do. You should treat them exactly the same or BETTER if you've found out they cut.
People who cut are just as important as people who don't. And the fact that they might be suicidal and planning to kill
themselves sometimes makes them even
more so. But don't get me wrong, the people who don't cut matter a lot. The people who cut NEED you to UNDERSTAND, HELP,
LOVE, and for you to TELL them that
you NEED them. They are not a WALKING, TALKING joke. They are PEOPLE and they matter.
Cutting is NOT the ONLY self-harm people use on them selves. There is also burning and countless other ways of harming
Please, if you self-harm or know someone who does, get help!!!
