That person seeks attention, and that's why OP should go talk to her and ask her what's wrong. That girl just wants a shoulder to cry on.


okay but no you dont know the mentality of that person. she could want to hide from everyone.

I dont know how many times I need to say it.

SELF HARM IS NOT AN ATTENTION SEEKING ADDICTION

for most its not, anyway. I cant speak for everyone, but I know a vast majority dont want to flaunt their scars and issues.

Do not approach the girl and bring up her scars because thats the last thing anyone wants.

Please for the love of god all of you who ive seen be ignorant are over 18. (allegedly)

Can't you think that because we are older we know a little more about the subject?

I'm twice your age and I've experienced all kind of shit, loneliness, pain, etc... I'm no ignorant.

Hey, all,

This is a very sensitive topic, so I'd appreciate it if everyone would take extra special care to not troll, not hate on others, not insult others, and in general, try to be nice.

Thanks,

You know the drill let them lean on you and you in turn need to coddle them, from that point on they'll be emotionally dependent on you; creating an unhealthy relationship for years to come that will spiral into an inevitable--

Using reverse psychology is a good idea. If someone thinks they deserve pain then they are already past the point were you have to be sensitive about it.

Cruelty and unkindness for the win?



No more like tread extremely carefully. If you have no idea what the hell you are doing leave it to the professionals the last thing you want is to exacerbate the situation.

Thank you all very much for your comments and I have talked to her.
I'm not sure what she's thinking but by now, my whole class knows about her cutting.
She said she is insecure about her weight and that she's been down lately.
I plan on talking to her more and she has began to open up little by little.

All of your comments are so very helpful, thank you.

I have sent her the links and I've gone over it with her. I've also talked to her a lot about telling our form tutor,
But I'm not sure if she'd like that. I'll keep talking to her and get her to properly look into the site so she can help herself.
Thank you very much for the links and we live in the UK.
