    I know how...

    But why do such horrible feelings, and pain come to people so young? I started with this pain since I was 8, but now I'm 15. It's been a year since I've started cutting. Why is it that such pain comes to so many young people?

    There are probably people here, younger, some a little older that feel it. It's not really fair. Sometimes I wonder what it's like to be happy. I wonder sometimes what I might accomplish, what I might feel if I wasn't this way...

    What would you (think you would) do if you hadn't felt it? This pain?

    Children are dependent upon their parents, and without adequate parenting, they pay the price...it is truly immoral the way many children are treated, victims of ppl who need to control and inflict harm...but quite a few children who had awful starts grow up to be kind, generous and successful adults...yes, many bare the scars of their horrific beginnings, but all is not lost...l am a survivor of severe child abuse, having been raped and tortured from the age of 3 to 15, and today l can feel blessed and loved...so, it is not where you start, but where you finish that counts...wishing you hope and opportunity...and good mental health care (which helped to save my life)...big hugs

    well some of the pain might end if you stop cutting yourself. obviously it isnt helping you any. maybe you just need some prozac. it'll cost money, but not as much as the medical bill when you get treated for infection and have your arm amputated.

    I feel the same way. I'm only 13 but I've been cutting for a year and dealing with depression for a year. I haven't decided to tell anyone because I think that'll make matters worse. I've only told a few of my friends, and they said they've felt the same way before. it's odd, it truly is.

    Why are younger and younger people now getting depressed, cutting, commitung suicide? Are our younger generation's mentally weaker? Do they have much more pressures upon them?
    Sorry to be pessimistic, but I fear for our future children and the young people of today, seems as though they are quite worse off than our parents/grandparents where when they were our age don't you think? :sad:

    i feel the same way... in a sense, i don't think we're mentally weaker, in fact, i'm probably much more intelligent than most of the 7th graders at my school. not trying to show off or anything but... yeah. some of the things I say make people look at me oddly as if my response was out of place. i think thats because i think on a higher level and they haven't quite reached that level so they think my responses are misplaced.

    i really dont think so. in fact, i think we are stronger. but the world is getting too unfair, too evil. it seems like no one care about other people, they only care about themselves.
    sometimes i feel that im just too sensible, seems like i care too much... but i really dont know.... i wish there was someone like me, but it seems like no one even know me.....

    Well, maybe not weaker but perhaps more soft, I think we're much more spoiled now. It disturbs me to see 6 year olds gettings Ipods and cell phones for instance. I really feel that todays youth is worse than our previous generations. Plus, we're having much more stress with popularity, academics, etc. This is such a harsh cold world and people wonder why so many youth commit suicide?

    Of course not all, but I feel a majority are very selfish, arrogant, stuck up, or maybe I've just had bad experiences or been brainwashed, I dunno. Always the grass is greener on the other side where I think that our older generations had it easier as kids?

    I feel the same way pretty much. Self-harm was practically non-existent in the 80's. I wish I couldn't get depressed. :sad:
