Cutting

What causes people to cut themselves?

People cut because they have so much pain inside that they have trouble letting out so when they cut that shifts the pain to a physical pain and can actually make them feel a little better, for a little while. The only problem with that is they never really deal with the emotional pain, they're just covering it up or shifting it to something else. And the more they cut the deeper they have to cut to have the same feeling which not only causes scarring which will only make them more self conscious and self loathing but can also be dangerous because they can accidentally cut too deep causing serious damage or even death if they cut a vein.
People who cut need to find a good therapist who is familiar with cutting and can help them find coping skills and healthier ways to deal with stress and emotional pain so that they can find true healing inside and out.
