a form of self-harm in which someone drags a sharp object across their skin to cause a wound.

reasons for this self-harm:

1) every time they are bullied or called a name they make a cut

2) they feel as if no one can help them and everyone wants to hurt them so they hurt themselves


(with my best friend)
me: *lifts up pant leg to scratch my leg*
friend: what are those marks on your leg?
me: 0-0 n-nothing
friend: please, tell me..
me: i've been cutting myself (╯︵╰)
friend: *hugs me*
me and my friend: *cries*

Half-filled cup of tea. The word is commonly used in restaurants and snack stalls across India.
After a sandwich lets grab a cutting.

Cutting is a form of self harm. Cutters use sharp objects to harm themselves. They cut anywhere to just feel something.

I have a way to describe it to non-self harmers. Just hold your breath. Hold it until your chest feels like it might just burst and then breathe. You felt relief and that's what cutters feel.
Friend: Why do you cut yourself?

Cutter: Cutting makes me feel something other than nothing.

1) an unhealthy coping mechanism

2) an addiction
P1 - What are your healthy coping mechanisms?

P2 - Sometimes I take a hot shower to try to calm down when I get angry.

P1 - What are your unhealthy coping mechanisms?

P2 - When I get angry cutting is my first solution.

When a junior or teenager feels so much pain and have no way to express it, and the only way is to cut or in other words, self-harm. They do it because if they tell they're parents the negative things that they wanna get out, they'll get in trouble. And if they tell they're friends, they are afraid that they will tell a paeent or counselour about self-harm. Then people wonder why other people and I wear long-sleeves.
"Anneliese is wearing long-sleeves, that's unusual." Say's Kylee.
"Why?" Say's Midori
"I dont know." Say's Kylee
"I heard she's cutting." Say's Alisa.

The act of cutting your skin, with a knife, razor, etc. It releases endorphins into the brain, "stopping" pain, temporarily. I have a friend who used to cut, but he fortunately stopped. I don't disagree with it, but don't agree either. It's not jumping into the bandwagon, cuters just do it to release emotions, but in my opinion, it's psychological. I believe that there are better ways to release emotions than to slowly kill yourself every day/week.
Cutting is a way to make you un depressed, and is a serious problem.
