  • They want to show others that they are in pain .
    Just be a friend to them .
    Give them a hug if you can .

  • self harm isnt exactly "normal" in any sense, but yeah, that is a reason to do it.
    personally, i used to self harm for the marks. that wasnt the only thing but it was part of it. the idea of my pain visualised brought relief. like, because you cant see emotional pain, if i have those physical marks, it makes it real.
    self harm is horrible. i wish i never started. NEVER

  • Not normal. Usually self harm is to take away mental pain, not to want scars
