"I hurt myself today,
To see if I still feel,
I focus on the pain,
The only thing that’s real,
The needle tears a hole,
The old familiar sting,
Try to kill it all away,
But I remember everything,
What have I become?"
- Nine inch nails
The ritual of self-mutilation was never something I would understand. The cutting, stabbing and piercing. The same ritual that exsists between kids and teens was one I could not understand even more. Some say it`s a cry for help. That with cutting their wrists, they are only trying to get other people`s attention. You want to know what I think? I think that kids (and adults for that matter) who practice such self-mutilation are pretty fucking stupid. And I know that`s politically incorrect and that we should feel sorry for them but guess what…if the person is stupid enough to cut their own wrists, then I am smart enough to call that person a fucking asshole.
They want to draw attention? Pick up a broom and sweep the floors. Or go out naked. That`ll get everybody`s attention. Sitting at home, holding your wrist over the sink and staring at the mirror isn`t helping anybody. And is especially not helping you, you fucking jerk.
You want to know the real reason? It`s the surplus society again. Spoiled brats who heared one song too many from Nine inch nails or Eminem and are so dumb that following some stupid lyrics is the brightest thing to do. And please, don`t talk to me about impresionable kids. You`re talking to a guy who STILL sometimes thinks he is flying an x-wing when he rides his bike. And I never ever in my life wanted to mutilate myself. I draw attention in other ways. And it worked. Every single time. While cutting your wrist never works. Ever.
The best way to deal with these losers?
Ignore them. Completely. Do exactly the opposite from what they are expecting you to do. Calling someone`s bluff is usually the best way to stop the bluff. And what if they hurt themselves too much and accidentaly kill themselves? Good riddance.
