I write this now to say and help others and myself. I am sixteen years old and I first started cutting when I was fifteen years old. I didn’t do it for attention, I did it to show others how I felt inside. It made things worse. I stopped for two months and I started up again. This time I cut right below my wrist because my girlfriend broke up with me. Then this past week I slashed my arm but all wounds were superficial. I say I no longer want to cut. And I made a promise to myself that I will no longer cut.
