Which is the better option?

Is it better to hurt on the inside, and never let it out, or hurt yourself on the outside, to show that you are in pain and needing something?

That is the million dollar question isnt it?

I think its better to hurt yourself. It releases the pain for a while. It allows you to release all the emotions your keeping hidden, keeping withheld from people, keeping inside of you. Isnt that the better option?

It works. And isnt what works better than what doesnt work?

Talking just makes me confused. More confused than I already was to begin with, because talking leads to more questions, and no answers to them. So what good is that?

Cutting is what we’ve always done, we know it, it is a coping skill, it has always been there as a resource for us in times when there was no other way, no one to tell, nothing else to do. How can we just give it up? Its like taking food from someone and expecting them to survive. It is part of our survival.
