We feel so much. Or we feel nothing. We feel hope. We feel strength. We feel despair. We feel uneasy. We feel alone. We feel surrounded. We feel abandoned. We feel. But all at once, that feeling could be gone. That’s what I always try to remind myself of. The feelings will come and go, that’s inevitable. But what we do to ourselves during those feelings, or lack thereof, will stay forever. We will forever be stained by a moment of feeling. But at that moment.. We just don’t care. We want the feeling to go away or to come back. I want to remind others also that we feel. When you call us bad names. When you mock us. When you yell, scream, criticize. We feel it all deeper than you could ever imagine. To you, its helping. To us, its more ugly scars. The mind of a cutter is.. Complex and fragile. We can barely understand ourselves so we do not expect an understanding from anyone else. You can read all the articles and research you want, but to understand an individual cutter is a whole process in its own. Do not label us because you think you understand. do not tell us what we need or try to determine our best interest. You will never know. No one will ever know. We might not even know. We thank you for your concern, but we only ask for your support. We can only help ourselves.
