I feel pain
Of course I feel pain, that’s why I do it. It’s a release for me is the best way to describe it. I get really hurt emotionally and cutting gets rid of those feelings of heartache and anxiety. It’s short term though. It’s nothing good, In fact, the worst thing about cutting is when I do it I tell myself, “good girl” or “deeper, come on that’s not a cut.” Its scary cuz it’s like that voice in my head is not even me. Pathetic I know but everyone’s got their story on how they ended up like this and I’m not so quick to give that up.
