Self Harm is dangerous, you may not think it, but if you cut you could easily ket the razor slip & cut your wrists.

There are 1001 reasons.

Self Harm isnt 'wrong' its just a taboo subject. Its a coping mechanism, but not a good one.

There's alot wrong with self-harming it can lead to more dangerous things like you being so addicted to it that you let it control your life. Also you could slip up an end up slitting your wrist the wrong , way their are tons of things wrong. I have never had anything super dangerous happen , but i can say that from personal experience that i am now addicted to cutting. I stopped a couple days ago and so far i have been self-harm free for a week but its still hard to not cut every day . So yeah self-harming is bad .

There isn't anything wrong with SH it's just a reason for coping when things get too much. It's just the same as drinking or taking etc. it helps you deal with things. I'm not exactly sure why it's frowned upon more than other ways of dealing with it though.

Now I'm a stranger in your eyes.
