Angry i cant even cut myself right. - August 28th 2012, 04:22 AM

First day of high school today. I saw a few others who cut too. Its obvious who cuts if you yourself cuts. I'm a 15yr old boy so I don't do that butterfly project shit but the girls with a ton of braclets and the butterfly on the wrist. ECutters. The guy with dark scars from wrist to elbow. Cutter. Attention whore cutting in front of class.. need I say it? Cutter. Poor ol me. To fuckin worried about my futureto cut myself like a man. My cuts are shallow. Barley deep enough to scar and they only scar for like a week. Then they're gone. I'm feelin like such a pussy. I can't even fuckin cut myself right. Other forms of self harm are just to exotic or weird. Hairpulling? Not an option...? Needles... why use a billion needles when u can just use one razor? I'm thinkin maybe I should just say fuck it and cut deep. Screw my future as a marine. Just do it *self*. I should just cut my wrist for real. Not a single alternative worked. Not one single one. Fuck. I'm pathetic.

You are not pathetic because you don't cut "as bad as other people"...

The fact you cut is a warning sign towards possible suicidal actions, or depression.

You really should not be comparing yourself to other people who cut. Find a reason not to (you being a marine) and stick with that!

The girl doing the butterfly project- she is trying to stop! That is what the butterfly project is!

The guy with dark scars from wrist to elbow- Im assuming he has stopped and is comfortable enough to show his scars now. That takes a lot of courage.

Point im trying to make... You think you need to "cut yourself like a man"? Try healing like a man. Being strong and fighting urges like a man.

Use your reasons why you shouldn't and FIGHT IT LIKE A MAN!

You have so much of a future in front of you, after all, you are only 15! you can make it through this and live a happy and fulfilling life! Stop cutting and become your dream job as a marine.

If you ever want to rant, just send a message to me, but remember. Fight it! You can do it! Not cutting does NOT make you any less of a person. it makes you strong enough to fight it.


R.I.P Mommy </3 July 1,1963-April 8, 2012. I miss you

It's a momentary relief from the existential terror of existence!

Cutting yourself isn't a reason for people to say "Wow, what a man" his dreams, his personality, his very person is what being a man is about. You're 15, why not just have days where you can pretend to be six years old again? Just because nothing else you've tried works, keep seeking for something to keep your attention. Perhaps do excercise to get your mind off it. Put your dreams in front of cutting and reach for your goals not a razor.

You can message me if you want to talk. I'm on a heck of a lot. Keep it in mind.

Back when I was in middle school, I wasn't actually open about it, but I felt like such a loser because I didn't have the 'guts' to cut deeper. And then I realized how stupid I was and I also realized that I needed to be my own person.

Don't do it or continue, just be yourself and sail your own boat. It really makes a difference because you know deep down that cutting isn't right but yet you want to be able to say 'Look I can actually make a scar!' it's not worth it and it won't make you happy. Trust me been there and done that!

If you want to talk I'm here (just joined like 5 seconds ago!) I've never been one to follow clicks and I really am my own person, even now in college there are the 'groups' (SO much better then high school or middle school!) and I'm just like 'What up everyone' but anywho don't do it because you'll get nothing out of it except 'What am I doing?'
