Hey Neonic, talk to her girl. She's obviously going through stuff and she feels like the only way she can deal with it is by cutting. It may be good that she talks with someone. See if there's a counselor at your school that works during the summer. If not you girls can talk to her. If she doesn't feel comfortable talking to you, tell her to get a journal so she can jot her feelings down. Hope this helps! Xoxo
MOD MOD MOD !!!

To Everyone Who Has A Friend That Cuts and Doesn't Know How To Handle It-
My name is Lucy. I'm 14 and a freshman. And I cut. For many reasons. But the biggest one is because I feel invisible and not in control. Cutting makes me feel more present in my own life. It makes me feel like I can control just one little thing. I don't let just anyone see my scars and cuts. If I do let someone see, it's on purpose even if I make it seem like an accident. I like to feel taken care of. When I let someone see my scars and they don't say anything, it makes me feel unwanted and unloved. I want the person to say something. To tell me not to do it, even if I won't listen. It makes me feel loved. So when you see cuts on someone, SAY SOMETHING. Let them know you care and you want them to stop. Even if they seem like it's none of your business, they'll appreciate it. Don't be afraid to be stern. NOT ANGRY. Just stern and serious. Don't act like it's no big deal, because it IS. Let them know you care.

My friend does this. It's so messed up. I just feel so empty inside now. What's the point to life anyway?

I feel like doing that sometimes. Last month I developed this habit of scratching my arm and when I saw my crush flirting with this girl,I scratched so hard that I started to bleed. I dont do that anymore though. Now I rip paper instead. hehe.
