one of my friends told me the other day that she thinks the reason that i cut and stuff is because i want to get attention... and i don't think that's true. i mean, i didn't tell anyone about it until someone found out. and.... i didn't want to tell my parents or anything. i don't know why she thinks that. but it's not true! i don't cut to get attention. but how am i supposed to convince her of that. she doesn't know anything about my cutting or the reason that i do it or how often or my suicide attempt or anything like that. she thinks that i only cut a couple times and then stopped, which probably explains the reason she thinks i'm doing it for attention... but what do i say to her to convince her that i'm not just doing it for attention. she thinks i'm a selfish little pig.... but i don't think i am. and i know that sounds self-centered, but.... well, i honestly don't think that my cutting has anything to do with getting attention. because no one does pay attention because i dont' want them to pay attention to the cuts and scars and stuff. so i hide them. and i don't tell people. so.... how is that attention seeking? i'm really confused.
