Kids cutting themselves...
Hello there. I do not want to say the ages of these kids or the names… So please bear with me as I tell you what has been happening in my school/life.
In my school I now know that a bunch of girls cut themselves because they feel sad. These where some of the responses I got back from asking them why did they do it.
“well… the pain on the inside is to bad so i cut my slef to make me feel better”
“I know that others do it so that way i do it too.”
“well my boyfriend makes me sad so that is why I do it.”
“i do it because i am addicted to it”
When they responded with those replies I felt a little sick to my stomach and my mind was hurting. I said that cutting themselves is no awenser to any problem. They then said that it was because it took the emotional pain away by hurting themselves. I said that is just pain x2…
So community, can you please give me any advice on how to help people stop or how to explain to them that it is not the best way to cope with pain. Also my mind hurts when i think that it makes them feel better so do you have any suggestions to help that too? Any help is good for me. And also. Please be serious.
