Self-harm

What would posses someone to hurt themselves habitually?

I assume there's more to it than "I'm bored.Hey look a knife.I bet that would sink into my flesh quite nicely."

I don't understand.

Crx, that's the stupidest lie anyone ever told. Masturbation releases more endorphins. If it was only about the endorphin rush people would be beating their meat all day long instead of cutting.

The fact is that cutters seek attention. They want someone to discover and stop them. They claim they don't, but they're full of shit. What they deserve is to be beaten every time they do it by someone who screams "FEEL THE PAIN!!!!! THE PAIN RELEASES ENDORPHINS!!!! YAY!!!!!!!! IT IS A RELEASE!!!!!!!!! YOU FUCKING MORON!!!!!!!!"

Bet they stop right quickly if that happens.

It's a pretty great stress reliever.


Cutting releases endorphins.
Endorphins stop pain.

It's usually a coping method to deal with something traumatic that happened to them, or else they're attention whores and just do it because they want the negative attention they will receive from it.
