I want a straight answer. I'll be honest, I use to cut out the ass, but I haven't done it in like 6+ months. I used to do it every day, then stopped, then started doing it less frequently, but more damaging. Then I just stopped and now I just take out all that pent up stuff on other things, like people I don't like. My question is, what's so bad about it? I mean it's a fucking cut. If it helps someone feel better, then why does it matter? And don't pull out the 'well you could talk to someone' shit, because I've already tried it. Calling hotlines doesn't do shit but make things worse (I've called them almost 10x over the years and every time they have made things go from bad to shit almost instantly). Talking to family is usually a bad idea because most families are assholes to each other or don't understand and don't know what to say. Talking to friends is a better idea, but in my case, still doesn't make the cut (no pun intended). I mean, no therapy, no pill, nothing helped me feel better, faster, than simply taking a knife and slashing myself. I mean, everytime cutting is brought up, everyone points to 'other things you could do,' but no one ever considers, what if those 'other things' don't work for shit? Then what, geniuses? Well, in my opinion at least, cutting is as legitimate as therapy. If it helps, then it helps. I mean, obviously if you have to go the hospital or are losing alotta blood, then it's probably gone too far, but simply cutting on yourself is NOT that big of a deal I think.
