Because i know of nothing else...
” I cut for the hope that maybe my depression and suicidal thoughts will follow the same path as my cuts and one day all I will be left with is a faint scar. But I’m beginning to lose hope again.”
its become an addiction, a comfort, a punishment, something deserved, a way to get through the day.
I cut because I feel I have no other escape.
