The only people who knows (that I know of) are, my mom, sister, and best friend/blood-sister. I started cutting with my best friend, so she was awesome and we are both cutters. My mom and sister are really emotional about the whole thing. They don’t know that my best friend is who made all this happen, I am very grateful to her. But yeah, anyways. Mom freaks out whenever she thinks about it or wants to discuss it with me. She crys and hugs me, thinking that I have a major issue that she blames herself for. No one’s fault but my own, I’m the one who makes a damn party with myself whenever I cut. I love doing it, why can’t they understand that I’m doing what makes me happy? Does anyone else on this site SI out of wanting to feel extreme happiness?
