I don't think they cut themselves base on that "it feels good". Maybe there is a deeper pain (emotionally) that people can't take, and they distract themselves by inflicting physical pain to not think about that deeper pain.

So what reason makes emos cut themselves, and why?


many reasons ::

cry for help
expressing their depression
relieving depression
feeling pain instead of nothing
way to pass the time
punishing themselves ( this happens for people with history of abuse too )
marking themselves as different then the others .




Well, it's not good to hide the sadness in the heart, i bet if they talked to their friends and told them about how they feel, they might feel better. If they want to punish themselves, feeling guilty about what happened is enough


maybe they have no friends ):


i used to have no friends in 8th grade, and i never thought of cutting myself O_o
all what i do is sitting in my seat and sketch on the desk or my notebook

I was gonna say that, it's the best explanation
I used to cut myself, but not because of that reasonable reason (lul) you just noted.
(I'm an artist after all.)

It's not just cutting, people who bathe alcohol; buy expensive light bulbs for their Marijuana plantation;
fuck a horse for a sack of cocaine and etc. are part of the so-I-can-forget-the-pain agenda too.

It's usually a stereotype.
But some say it's to release pain through hurting themselves.

Not all emo cut themselves, thought it was just the whole skinny jeans and hair down your eyes thing going on....

I like people-watching and some emos I see around town have clean wrists.

My point is, just coz they dress that way doesn't make them cutters.

I wish people would stop associating emo with self harm, this is a stereotype.
I know several people who do self harm and they are not emo, they do not cut for attention, there is a more serious underlining factor including unipolar depression. Bottom line is unless you are a mental health professional you shouldn't make light of a valid copying mechanism.

This is such a stereotype. A lot of people cut themselves, either emo or not. Everyone has a strong reason for doing that I think. Maybe they release their anger on themselves. Dunno, that's what I would do. By the way, no idiot cuts for attention, that's just ridiculous.

Its because they are paranoid about the life force that runs in between their veins. Each heartbeat pulses fresh life through them, thus making them new people constantly. They, aka emos, hate the fact that they have to constantly reaffirm their "emoness" thus they bleed themselves in an effort to drain out the change.

only thing i can think of is by inflicting physical pain to oneself you are able to forget emotional pain even for a few hours
