Chat in newbies or journals...stop trying to spam up the links forum, thanks.
That`s too bad. Why are you on this site though if you`re 10?
The first time I ever did it I was 19. I haven`t done it since I was 23...last year.
I`m talking about myself because I used to cut sometimes.
And I said "Damn emo kids" because I was too lazy to explain it.
Cutting yourself is stupid so don`t do it.
F u c k you.
All I`m saying is that I find it a good bit easier to respect someone for taking the hard road and doing things the right way. My apologies for suggesting that you don`t respect your sister, but if the shoes fit...
Either way, it`s been nice. G`bye.
Cutting is gay. and if you cut so are you
With all of that happening and all of the possible choices, why would she choose to cut herself? As previously stated, it`s either the weakest form of "coping" or the strongest form of self-pity.
To turn her experiences into a competition is not only disgusting, but it shows that you have just as much respect for her as she did for herself.
Her aunt killed herself. Her boyfriend killed himself in front of her. Another boyfriends cheated on her (ok, big deal, i know, but it added to everything else). Another guy pushed into her house and raped her. He then proceeded to stalk her. Another boyfriend was abusive. Many of her friends are suicidal. Oh yeah, and she`s dying.
You say that she can choose to look past it and have some self respect? Sure. But admit this: Its DAMN hard to look past tat, and even if she could, she may not be able to have any self respect because people have STOLEN THAT FROM HER>
You`re not trying to play god? Really? Fine, whatever float your boat. You still ahve no right to tell ANYBODY who deserves to live and who deserves to die.
Discordany, I`m not trying to play God. I know people that have horrible pasts.
For example, I know a guy who had an abusive father. He was dumped on the downtown streets as a kid and told to find his way home. He was constantly beaten. He had to dig through dumpsters to find clothes for himself. HE had a hard life. Did he cut himself? No. He pulled himself up by his boot straps and got his life where it should be. Everyone has the potential to go one way or the other.
One CHOOSES to cut or not. One could choose to be weak and cut, or one could choose to look past that and have self respect.
And f*ck you, you disgusting little prick. You have absolutely no f*ucking right to play god and decide who deserves to live and who deserves to die. You have absoluetly no f*ucking right ot tell me that my sister deserves to be dead right now becase she`s had a horrible past. You know what, not a lot of people could even have gone through a lot of the shi(t she`s been through... they`ve f(ucking told me that.... so you can shove it up your ass.
SOME DO IT FOR ATTENTION, YES. BUT OTHERS DO NOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
They do it because THAT IS THEIR COPING METHOD.
And you know what? When they TRY and explain why they are sad and not feeling good and WHY THEY CUT, they most likely get the same responces you people give "OMG! EMO!" "Freaks" "STUPID CUTTING MORONS!"
Makes me want to cut just thinking about how mean some people can be.
Did she do it again? If the answer is no, my comment stays as is. If the answer is yes, then she should have cut deeper.
Oh, by the way, if you have no friends and everyone hates you, how do you hang out with the friends that you have? I thought you had none?
Good for you for not cutting.... some people can`t manage that, however, and they need help, not someone saying "well ive been through all of that and I dont cut" That`s just bound to make them feel even more worthless, which probably isnt the right course of action.....
Sure, there are people who do it for attention. Can`t stop that. But MOST of them do not. And many of them are not EMO or GOTH.And you know what, if someone actually offered, and really truley cared, to take a cutter to a psychologist, they may just say es. I, for one, have offered it to about 5 people, and 4 of them took me up on that offer and are BETTER.
Anyways, what I really want to say is: F*CK YOU..... This is a serious issues and insesitive comments like that last bit you said are NOT f*cking needed
Go ahead. Make fun of me.
that is a wonderful point.
Now, I know everyone wants to believe that there are reason, and what not, but alot of the time it`s for attention. Most depressed people don`t really want to die, they just want help. Some people just want to be `cool`. At any rate, it`s still for attention. But just because it`s for attention doesn`t mean it should be ignored. Because they NEED help.
This isn`t a clear-cut issue. They`re not all wanting to be `cool` and they`re not all dying inside.
And sometimes it`s a bit of both.
"Since when is bleeding and scars and pain "cool"?"
That`s what I was wondering. I wonder if they`re just mocking the people who are seriously huring inside?
Heck, these days I wonder why ANYTHING can be declared "cool". I`m 17, and I can`t help but look at other kids my age and wonder "wtheck?" Maybe it`s because I had my share of dealing with that crap in Middle school and no longer care for a bunch of the stuff normal teenagers do...
I`m just waiting for the flames.
Ever wonder if they`ll start using the word `emo`
Thats completely wrong, the reason they cut themselves is because of people like you making there lifes suck, with your b*tching about it to them. For all you know they could of been raped, they could have serios problems at home, and there beaten up evryday at school because of this.
(But that`s just my opinion so back off with the flaming.)
And people with the Emo comments.Please, are we still stuck in the past?Grow up :)It would make this place a whole lot better. I`m sure of it.
Ever wonder if they`ll start using the word `emo`
Ignorant, narrow-minded, morons..
Ever heard of decreased seretonin release?
Some people just can`t help but be sad, and they don`t know why. So it`s not their fault.
I`m with shooting the cool crowd- people who cut themselves because they can`t cope have a mental disorder. (I`m not trying to be funny or sarcastic, it`s true) Depression is real and sometimes it can`t be `solved` by just `getting over it`. These people need HELP not bashing.
Wednesday, June 07, 2006 10:15:48 AMWhat happened to good `ole fashioned drowning your sorrows with alcohol? Or hell, if you want to hurt yourself have a cigarette addiction. What`s with the cutting? Get a diary, a blog, or a shrink. Don`t understand...
It`s funny you list two addictions, which relax you. Well, same as cutting yourself! It releases endorphines, which make you feel better. It can be somewhat like a drug. What is the difference really? Just cutting is more frowned upon our society than
If people are doing it to be part of the cool crowd, the cool crowd should be shot. On sight. With shotguns.The cool crowd is SEVERELY over-rated. I find I`m happier being myself.
For the ones who are doing it as part of the cool crowd (which is stupid), they aren`t going to go to a shrink. Some of the ones actually doing it to cope with pain, though, might actually WANT help. I`m the type of person that, if I were hurting myself, I`d be going to someone for help. Thank G-d (literally) I have several friends I can turn to when I`m depressed.To Lorah:Thanks for stating that. I was severly depressed at 15 and almost killed myself. I`m a lot better now, 2 years later. I still have depressed moments, but I have people I can talk to now that I trust. A lot of people don`t have that, as you pointed out. The kids I went to middle school with were total douche-bags. I couldn`t talk to them about anything. All of the other kids were only concerned about cheerleading tryouts and trying to get laid. I was just trying to survive. A lot of kids go through that.
The sad commentary on our society is that SOME kids are doing it because it`s the IN thing to do now. THOSE are the kids that need to be drop-kicked. Hard.
And even though Lorah can`t seem to be able to spell or use periods, she does make some very valid points to those that just say "Deal with it. Everybody else has to".
God damn emo`s.
You speak about how it`s wrong to judge people, to label them by an action, but you`re then turning around and saying they shouldn`t be labled emo because of what? they don`t dress or act overall like the stereotypical `emo`? isn`t that just labeling up another group of people, not because of they cut theirselves, but because of how they dress and act overall?
That`s kind of hypocritical.
*note* I`m hardly serious about that opinion. It`s just the guys that are just saying `emo` are only saying that and you guys are coming up with some actual points as to why these people can`t be called emo. I figured I`d at least throw a counter-argument out there.
Cutting yourself is either the weakest form of coping or the strongest form of self pity. If you want a way to cope with something, talk about it. Get your mind off of it. Do something about it instead of sitting on your lazy ass crying about it.
I`ve been through bouts of depression. Who hasn`t? What did I do about it? I fixed it. I helped myself instead of cutting myself or any other form of self mutilation.
As for the ones cutting themselves, I hope the lot of them hit a major vein. Scare `em a bit.
1. It`s SO cool. And goth.2. It`s very emo! Wow, self sacrifice!3. Mainly...for attention. (Look at me...I`m suffering...boo hoo.)
I know if you offered help to these people, or asked to take them to a psychologists, they sure as he|| would not take you up on your offer.
Anyways, carry on with your bi.tchfest. =)
Oh, and remember kids, adults, and ivy-league students...and even to the ones in low-middle class universities and high/middle schools. Just remember:
"If you`re going to cut, go down the road, not across the street."
You people just dont know anything... You alway automatically think `emo` if they are `cutting themselves` or anything like that.. i find that pathetic. The End.
These are REAL kids with REAL problems.
NOT drating little crybabies who just feel sorry for themselves and want attention. IT`S A WAY TO COPE.`
You ARE NOT THEM. You don`t know the trigger, so lay off on the "OMG LEIK EEWWW EMO BABIES!!!!! WHY CAN`T THEY JUST BE HAPPEE!??!!"
Do some research on it while you`re at it. Usually people who cut don`t tell anyone and if they do, it`s only because they realised they need to find a better way to cope with their feelings.
As for the others who cut and go out and show everyone, yah, they just think it`s cool.
They can`t be too bad anyways, they are getting daddy to pay for Ivy League universities.
Just make sure your more understanding should you find this out about people in your own life. It may surprise you how regular young people cope with things.
*shuts door of bomb shelter*
Anyhow, they should know not to take all the idiots that insulted them in school seriously, or should find another way to deal with life.
Can`t really give an opinion on it... never tried it, and never felt the need to. From what I know though, it seems to stem from something traumatic in childhood, a lot sexually
meh... *shrug* Watch some Dr. Phil bitches!!!
