This is for all those who seek solace in self harm. No judging anybody, no drawing conclusions, no forming opinions.

It is human nature to always look for easy ways out.

"I couldn't manage to score well , so I cut. I fought with my boyfriend,so I cut. This guy in my school called me a slut, so I cut. I am a victim of social exclusion, I just can't take it anymore, so I cut. Everyone talks ill about me, so I cut.I don't have friends, so I cut. "

Similarly, when you confront people for whom you hold utmost importance in their lives, they look at the scars, and blame themselves, solely because you matter to them.I am saying this, not because I THINK it's true, but because It's something I've experienced.

Even if you feel that there's nobody for whom you're a priority,does cutting make you important? No. It only portrays you as a needy, helpless, weak person. And if you think people will start loving you after looking at those marks, You're wrong. They'd be with you out of
