Advice for Family and friends of cutters
I wish I could say the no one hurts. But we do. Some people deal with things by cutting, drinking, burning, etc. Some are just stronger. Advice for parents, family, friends of cutters. Don't yell and wish us ill. Don't turn your backs either. From my exsperiance with cutting, I wish someone would have written my a long hand written letter. Sometimes I wish someone would fight for me the way I fight for them. I give up easy on myself because that's what others do to me. A hand written letter is very personal. When people yell that what I'm doing is wrong, stupid, etc. Do you think it helps? You may be scared, but I am too. We don't need anger, we need love and understanding. It doesnt make us bad people, it's a cry out for most. I'm scared and am having problems. If youre scared, tell me and tell me why. If it's hurting you, tell me why, but don't blame me for your stress or dispair, it only makes my depression darker. Don't force me to talk, because I will resist. When I resist, show me you'll fight for me and you're there for me. Out wait me, don't give up on me for my weakness.
