I'm not saying they don't do it for a strong reason, all i'm saying is that it used to be different. People didn't cut and bragged about it. Hell, people didn't cut, not in my surrounding at least. But the internet apparently has brought this trend into our society that cutting is a good way to divert the pain of their depression. This makes these people who are desperate to find a way out of their misery believe that this is actually a good way to do that. Believe me, I know people who cut and what they go through everyday blows my mind. Still, people didn't used to hurt themselves when they're sad. The only people that did were either crazy or under influenced. The internet's to blame for this phenomenon, tumblr, specifically who justifies the act of cutting, who popularizes self-inflicted pain, who puts harm in the center of attraction. It acts as a bait, waiting for those miserable people to nibble on it. Please do not hurt yourself or do not encourage people to hurt themselves, directly or indirectly. If you don't love yourself, fine then. But don't you dare take it out on the body that has been doing nothing but keeping you alive for all these years. This has to stop.
