Not Everyone Cuts Stamp by TheGhoulAvenue Not Everyone Cuts Stamp by TheGhoulAvenue
I couldn't find a stamp for this so I made one.
And it's pissing me off that people keep assuming it.

That someone cuts also doesn't mean that the person cutting has worse problems than the one who doesn't. Hell there's people that don't even have depression but cut anyway, and people that go through the worst shit but never cut themselves.
Some use cutting to release stress, others don't cut because they don't want to cause more pain or problems than they already have.

I know this stamp is old but thank you
sometimes not cutting makes others' depression feel stupid - as though they have no right to be sad since they're obviously not sad enough to cut so there fore they don't really have depression or if they do its not that bad.
Cutting is a choice that some people make in an effort to alleviate the pain (though as someone who has never cut i'm not sure how it helps?) and therefore those who have the self control not to or who choose not to or see no reason to do so are not in the slightest any less depressed...
tbh as much as those who make it through cutting end up strong, it's the people who have a horrid hard time and who refrain from doing it who are the strongest.
cutting isnt strong and i'm not sure why so many people seem to think it is
doing something weak doesn't make a person weak though and those who do cut, let me tell you that you're stronger than that x3

Meh, my stuff has no expiration date |D
From what I've heard cutting is a relief to some people, but I never really did it because it could get infected
or someone could see it and it wouldn't be worth the consequences and doesn't make anything better either.
I would call it strong when a person that does cut actually manages to stop all by themselves. I wouldn't call
cutting weak either, I see it more as a desperate attempt to feel better even if it causes more harm than good.
But then again when we're depressed we are not in the right state of mind and sometimes make bad decisions.
And I'm saying this as someone who just got out of another depressed stage, I'm feeling entirely different now, it's insane.

I do think someone who stops cutting is strong.
I don't think people who cut are weak, but I do think that cutting, the action is disrespectful to your own body and while i understand that the people who do cut are obviously going through a hard time and are strong people who are still living, i appose the fact that people are almost defensive of cutting and label it as something that is alright, I've seen it on the odd occasion and it's disgraceful. Yes, cutting is not weak, but it's most certainly not strong, the strong part is surviving and stopping... just like taking drugs to alleviate pain isnt strong

Back when I was depressed I never cut myself. I wasn't even thinking of it, which is maybe because I'm extremely afraid of hurting myself...
I also never told anyone I was depressed so luckily noone asked me if I were cutting myself. It must be terrible if depressive people receive those comments from people, I think it only makes their depression worse.

thank you
Thank you.
THANK YOU.
Whenever I tell people I have depression and I'm down in the dumps, they're always like "Aw, I used to cut, too." and it just frustrates me so much. I always have to show my arms, legs, and stomach to prove it to people. -_-
