I am not in anyway depressed...
One of my friends however is, and i see no real reason for it. He has gone all emo on me and my friends and its really starting to piss us off.
He got really interested in a girl who practically refused to speak to him and started cutting himself when we told him fuck all was going to happen with it.
Well there doesn't have to be a reason for depression.. there wasn't really one with me, its just a chemical imbalance... most people use the word depression way to often... what they mean is they are upset.. but upset doesn't get any attention these days so they have to say depressed.
Cutters do it for differant reasons.
Some losers do it for attention, or because they saw some guy in a band do it on stage and think they are really cool... wankers
others because they hate themselves and feel they should punish themselves
some because they don't know why they feel so shit, their is no reason for it, they just want to focus on some pain thats real instead of mental
some because its just that release you need. Watching the blood flow out of you, and the blood loss gives an almost euphoric fealing at times.
Cutting is bad tho... as an ex-cutter it does more harm than good. As it does no good at all, a temporary soloution to a problem.
I hate the cutters who have there arms or wherever they cut on show tho.. they are the attention seekers. Its a personal thing, it aint cool clever or funny, but sometimes it feels like a necessity, its not but it feels like it.
Its a shame that he is pissing you off.. I myself lost alot of friends in my younger years of depression... winging, making self forfilling prohecys like "everyone hates me" its very hard to deal with it and you really do need some good friends to help carry you through.. but you can get really addicted to depression, after a while you don't really know how to feel anything else.. and depression is very selfish too.. its hard to see outside the box when your really depressed. you don't think about how much of a cock you are being by winging, and you need some one to tell you in a way thats not going to strike a nerve.
IF he really is your friend tho, please stick with him and try to help him, if he really is depressed instead of being an attention seeker he need you, and turning your back on him might just push him that bit too far.
