is it normal to look at old scars and not feel shame? This may sound strange but iv been on and off cutting in this last year. I always did it in places were i could hide it with clothing while not changing how i looked. But i look at the scars and feel some strange feeling but i know its not regret or shame. But now occassionally i do see the shame so i keep trying to get rid of the scars just to end up creating new ones. its like an addiction i can stop no matter how many friends iv lost. its like i look at the freash cuts and see a sense of peace and control. my friends think i have stopped, but they just dont see anything. sorry if this did not make sense.
