Idk why but when I see someone that cuts themselves I have no sympathy for them at all. I just don't see what they get from doing it.

i don't feel sympathy. I feel a lot of empathy though

really, you will never unferstand why a person self-harms until you are at a similar state

That's because you've never experienced depression and how utterly irrational it usually is. It acts as a catharsis and also causes an endorphin spike. It also means that you usually have to clean up the wounds, giving it a care element and it also acts as a distraction from threatening thoughts. It's a short term coping method and not effective or beneficial in the long term.

Catharsis.

Hurting yourself is a way to vent your own self-hatred, or to distract yourself from the intensity of your feelings.

no. That's their choice and it's their body and if they are dumb enough to do that then fine.

then either you had boo boo depression or you have different coping methods and different perceptions of yourself, and therefore you have at least not experienced that sort of depression.

As someone who has cut themselves a good number of times and has the scars to prove it yes I do.


As for why. GG was close with pain. I was in pain, and cutting yourself releases endorphins or whatever which can give you an painkilling opiate like effect. And seeing your own blood spill out can be symbolic in itself.

Did you also know that people's experiences with depression are very subject to the individual and try to cope with that pain in different ways?

another reason people might cut, is because it's one of the only things left in their lives that they feel control over

edit: really bad wording. I don't support doing it but I have empathy for those who do it there.

So you're saying you eliminate your psychological pain by giving yourself physical pain? Thats kind of a horrible way to deal with problems.

This is a pretty common but also true thing. If you're so used to living with daily pain anyways, you might as well be one of the people giving you that pain.

Well no shit. But hindsight is 20/20 and it's one of those things where you won't ever fully understand it unless you experience it yourself

People who cut also cite it as a way to punish themselves because of self-loathing.

I honestly don't see why you're questioning something that isn't meant to be rational.

I've seen some people say they do it for fun just cause they like seeing blood, which is pretty disturbing.

it's ****ing stupid as shit. I honestly don't understand it. Shit happens, you deal with it and move on. If you are truly depressed, I sympathize with your depression, not your cutting. There are many other ways to deal with depression that aren't incredibly stupid so I would go towards them. And to the few famous artists that encourage their fans to cut, go die.

I've been in a pretty bad state of depression, where I thought no one liked me, like my life didn't matter at all and I never really talked to my parents so they couldn't help me. But I had that one friend that got me through it, just by being there for me. Not once did I cut myself or anything like that. I could get it if you had no friends at all and a bad living environment at home, but most people have at least one friend that wants to help, they just don't care.
