i know people probably tell you all the time that you shouldnt cut. But i have to be one of them. Cutting only takes the pain you feel inside for shorts moments. I used to cut. I have scars all over me. And trust me, when you think your only cutting for new pain your not. Your going to do what i once did and i cut earning me a trip to the hospital. PLease understand that no one wants to see you cut. Its not worth it. One day you wont be here to take it back. Just think about all the good that comes out of cutting.. There isnt any.. Yes it takes some pain away but it adds some new. Yes it makes some scars but are they worth it? Do what i do.. I stick an ice cube where ever i want to cut at and that spot goes numb. it wont make you bleed and it still gives you a little pain.. Like the numb part. It wont kill you and it will make you stronger. Get a red marker and pretend its a knife and draw where you want to cut. it looks like blood and again it dont leave scars. There is always going to be pain in life. but its what you do with the life you get that counts.

what if you can't stick to the numbness or fake cuts...what if your "addicted" to cutting, to causeing yourself bodily harm...what if the only way you see an out is to cut...what if you've been to hundereds of theripists and they've only ever givein you depression pills or you freak the theripist out and they send you to another...
depression is the real murderer not you it wasn't suicide it was an out mom...

No, its not justifiable.

You're still causing yourself harm and thats obviously not a good thing.

You can cover it up with makeup, wear pants, or use neosporin or some other creams to help reduce the image of the scars that will be left on your leg, but cutting over it wont do anything other than harm yourself more. /:

No offense to anyone.. But depression isnt the real murderer. If you are going to cut and it kills you then you are the murderer. Not depression. If you think about it, depression is treatable. Get put on meds for it. Just like i did. If you dont take action and dont wanna help yourself then you need to blame yourself. You cant blame an emotion for the scars on your arm or the debt family goes in for a funeral. Honey you can do whatever you want, you need to set your mind to it.

Try growing up watching your father beat your mother
try growing up switching schools 8 times a year.
try growing up cutting and being in the hospital about to die if they dont stop the bleeding. If you think an ice cube or markers wont help then they wont. But if you believe it will then it will

i used to say the same thing. Thats stupid that wont help. No one can help me.. And it was true the couldnt help me. Because someone my mind was set on failure. But once i MADE myself believe that if cutting was the only option then i didnt deserve to be here in the first place. And life was given to you. Take advantage and even if it gets rough laugh it off. One day it will be over and do you wanna look back and realize that if you didnt cut would it have changed my life different then now. YES it will. it all changes. Justwatch out. Its your choice but an emotion cant kill anyone. Its just like the saying Guns dont kill people, people kill people. Its the same with cutting.
Cutting dont kill people. The person cutting is killing themselves. They just dont know it.

Its true. Cutting over it will cause more pain and harm.
Just remember people have it worse then you in other countries. And if they can smile about it why cant you. Just try. If you need a friend to support you and help you through then just email anyone on TH. we all love it here and want to help you as much as possible. Non of us want to see anyone EVER hurting themselves. If you wouldnt wish it on someone else, then dont wish it on yourself.

It seems like a lot of these posts have nothing to do with your question.

I think it'd be better if you use the ways to try and heal the scar better. It might not even scar that bad, I know mine don't. Time and possibly scar products and makeup are the best thing.

People have already talked about the problems of cutting, so I'm going to answer your question.
No, it is not justifiable. It will heal faster the less that is cut. Wanting to take away the word slut is an excuse to do it more, so try and push that thought from your mind.
Try not to cut anymore, you can do it!

I'm just scared to death. I didn't really realize what I was doing. I was angry and regretting things and I wanted to punish myself for being that way and now what if my thigh says slut forever? What guy wants slut scar girl? I just hate everything right now.

@Mrs. Cox10 I don't think these "my pain is worse than yours" lists help anyone, if anything it makes them feel stupid, useless and unworthy of help. Which is not the case because everyone deserves help and everyones pain means something and is equal.

@OP- Blair I know where you're coming from but I don't think you should do it, chances are it may not read "slut" when it's healed, it may just be lines and might not even scar

Maybe they'll just be vague lines but what if it does say slut forever?

There are some creams that can reduce the look of scars if it does scar.
Try using some neosporin and/or some cocoa butter on it.

I won't bother detailing what everyone has already said; it's not justifiable.
As to the scarring, for now, use lots of neosporin. Even after the cuts are healed, use it. This may sound weird; but sunscreen will help too; it's really good for your skin and actually does help with scaring. If noticeable marks are left behind, there are special creams you can buy at any drugstore that are specifically for reducing and removing scarring.

I agree that it's not quite justifiable. I can see where you're coming from, though. I know it's tough when you've carved something into yourself, then are looking for a reason to do it again... it's pretty tough. Try to resist those urges though! You're stronger than they are.

Don't cut anymore, the scars will heal, in time. Use creams and whatnot to help the process. You don't deserve any more pain than what you've already experienced <3 I hope you feel better soon, message me any time, I'm here to help


PM me anytime, I love helping people and will do my best to help you <3
