My greatest concern is that the #cutforbieber trend is going to create a new generation of people turning to a knife when they don’t need to. That’s not fair to self harmers. They feel awful pain and they find relief in a knife and these young kids are cutting because they want Justin to notice them and to stop smoking. It makes cutting look like a form of attention when that’s not what it is for so many hurting people.
First the fuck off, “self-harmers” don’t need to be protected so their harming will be more sacred and preserved and less main streamed. How about they fucking stop cutting themselves instead of getting upset some preteen girl cut them self over JB. Like wtf. Are you guys really that upset over someone else cutting themselves because its not as good of a reason as yours? Get the fuck out of here with your false sense of entitlement to harm yourselves. That’s the most warped idea ever. You are protecting yourself to be the only person harming yourself so you can be on that pedestal so you can be the center of attention. After all, it’s only for attention or some emotional bull shit you could fix with a mature decision instead of a razor blade.
Hi. I appreciate you coming out and saying what you have to say so I can elaborate more on this complex issue, however I don’t appreciate you coming out with malice and ignorance. You could at least voice your opinion with concrete and sensible reasoning. Self harmers don’t need to be protected? Maybe if they weren’t constantly put down by judgmental fools who mistake their circumstances to be easy to escape, they could have a voice. What they go through is a seemingly endless cycle of hurt. It’s so difficult for them to stop. I am not trying to promote self harm. I am trying to to give my brothers and sisters a voice. We’re all human, we all laugh, we all smile, we all experience hurt, we all bleed. We can all be fragile and susceptible to sadness. So it is our duty as humans to help one another when we’re down, just like if you were in a mosh pit. That’s the rule: Amidst the chaos of a pit, if you see someone down, you stop to help your fellow mosher. It’s a shame that you think otherwise and that you think attacking hurting people will result in making a proper case for yourself.
And sir, I am not upset because these girls don’t have a “good enough reason” to cut, I’m upset that they even consider it an option. ”What a waste of a perfectly clean wrist.”
Also you said, ” You are protecting yourself to be the only person harming yourself so you can be on that pedestal so you can be the center of attention.” Please understand that I am the last person who wants attention. I really don’t like it. It makes me extremely uncomfortable. Plus, I do not cut. (and just because I don’t doesn’t mean I can’t speak about the topic) I’m not saying this to make my perception of myself any better or any worse. I’m saying this because what you’re saying is a fallacy and the last thing people in this world needs is more people lying to them. I’m sure you don’t like to be told lies. Well neither does the rest of the world, so take the time to get your facts straight so you don’t appear to be an arrogant airhead.
This “emotional bullshit” that you assume can be fixed with a “mature decision” is not what you think. It’s a dull ache in your chest that you can’t make go away. You want to rip it out but you can’t. You want to destroy the feeling and in turn, you want to destroy yourself. It’s not an easy thing to get rid of. On a good day you can cover the feeling up with a plastered on smile but its still there, that feeling. I don’t think cutting, burning, or any other form of self harm is the proper course of action but that does not mean I am going to put down someone who does. They need help. It’s so hard to go through everything on their own. It’s a much more complex issue than you realize. Very rarely can someone flip the switch and stop feeling the way they do and stop harming themselves. It’s not fair for you to think that it’s anything less than an endless war. It’s not just an internal battle. It’s a war. And even if they do win the war over self hate and self harm, they still have scars. It doesn’t go away as easily as you would foolishly like to believe and it doesn’t go away as easily as I would hope.
I don’t hate you and I honestly wish no harm against you. I just wish you could see things with a kinder and more compassionate heart. It would do you and the rest of the world much good.
