10+ Facts About Cutting & Self-Harm

0 ratings

Video Description

"Self-harm is to cutting as bread is to raisin bread. Cutting is a specific type of self-harm that some people take part in because they're mentally ill, or by definition crazy as established in this video using literal factual definitions.

Crazy doesn't have to be permanent, people can get help, problem is, your willingness to get help means you're slightly sane, and a lot of people who harm themselves are nowhere near sane so the cycle continues.

If you cut yourself, if you generally self harm, I do hope you get help. Whether help is at a mental asylum, a psychiatrists office or even talking to your friends/family, help is help. Get it.

Please Google your local institutions to find out more info.
