So there is a new guy in my class, he came a few days ago. Not many people have spoken to him as he seems shy and keeps to himself. People are talking a lot about him behind his back as he has noticeable cuts on his arm, most of them are of things such as "Satan" and the devils symbol, which people for some reason think is hilarious. It is only me that I know of that self harms in my class, so of course no one knows and thinks he's a freak. I am worried about him since I know what it feels like to self harm, and would never want anyone else to do it. Also, I am a bit confused as apparently in one of our classes today he was scratching with a sharp utensil at his arm, so I'm not sure if this is an actual problem or attention? I am not sure, I'm not going to judge, either way he is not feeling great. Sorry for the long post, but should I gradually talk to him about it and tell him that he's not alone?
