So many times when people express suicidal feelings or self harm people often accuse them of just doing it for attention. I think this is true for everyone but not in the way that those accusing think. Sometimes it may simply be to get attention because the person likes being the center of attention but more often it is not. I do believe we all do things to get attention, except that it's attention in the sense of being a reason to be around. We visit this forum, leave physical marks, say certain things and act a certain way, not to so that everyone looks at us but rather to see if there is anyone that cares about us and to see if there is some reason to stay in this horrible world. I know there are those that have severe social problems and prefer to be alone but I think most people want to know that at least one other person cares that they exist. And as much as we come to the conclusion that death is the only way out, there is always that very little part that wants the world to give us that little sign that shows us we have something to live for. I will be hoping for something, anything up until the very last second.
