journal because i am too angry to write my own version. (also added some stuff at the end)
I really hate it when people say they cut themselves and hurt themselves and say they take pills and such JUST FOR ATTENTION.
I'm not talking about the people who actually have severe problems with this, im talking about people who use it as some sort of plea for sympathy and attention that bash and attack their friends when they try to help, who post over and over how horrible their life is and how they need to cut or pop some pills just to get over it. Shit like that is damaging and disgusting to read. Its understandable to post how when you feel unwell or to rant, but to use something as severe as cutting as some sort of crutch for attention is sickening. If you really feel this way truly and aren't doing it for attention and posting about it 24/7 then get some help dear god, if you really feel that horrid get yourself help because everyone is special and you deserve life as much as me or anyone else but if you're just doing it so people on the fucking internet will pay attention to you, coddle you and give you things for free and just pamper you then fucking stop, thats not how friendship works at all and you should feel ashamed for even doing that. I've seen so many people doing shit like this and it's just disgusting." - *Ponns
TL;DR STOP PRETENDING TO CUT/SAYING YOU WILL COMMIT SUICIDE JUST FOR ATTENTION. IF YOU'RE NOT CUTTING/GOING TO COMMIT SUICIDE THEN YOU NEED TO REALLY STOP MAKING PEOPLE WORRY SO FUCKING MUCH. ESPECIALLY IF IT'S ONLY FOR FREE ARTWORK/NICE COMMENTS.
IF YOU REALLY ARE DOING EITHER OF THESE THINGS YOU NEED REAL HELP. NOT INTERNET JOURNALS AND PICTURES OF YOUR OC CUTTING THEMSELVES BECAUSE THAT DOESN'T HELP YOU. (granted vent art can help at times, but in the long run it doesn't fix everything.)
Please if you are feeling sad do these things here- (or find someone feeling sad, link them these)
