The Scars by xXxHeatherAnnxXx The Scars by xXxHeatherAnnxXx
For those who don't know what I mean by this, I'm saying that cutting is only a temporary fix, not something that'll heal. So after all, do these scars actually heal?

People often criticize those who self-harm due to a lack of understand. What the pain from self-harm actually does is send messages to the brain that release serotonin (the positive chemical) that acts as a pain killer. It is not uncommon for someone to self-harm, more than 140 women per 100,000 people die from self-inflicted harm, and 16 per 100,000 men.

Actually, if you think about it, scars are the result of healing.  Only autoimmune disorders produce results that don't heal.

The scars will always be there, but hopefully the emotional ones will close up and be gone forever... I just try to remember that the truth is everyone has a story.

There is definitely hope in that.

That's very true. Everyone has their own worst problem.

i like the concept... im not sure... im not a cutter so i cant speak to that but i can relate to scars. I have one on my forehead from my aneurysm. the body healed but some times like now im taken back and i think about the time when i felt broken. So I dont know if they ever heal fully or not i think its like was told to me its like a hang over as time goes by the pain is less so the depth of the scar is less. thats just what i think...

You've definitely got a grip on the concept. Now I'm confused by your wording, are you saying that the scar left an emotional wound that cannot be healed? And I'm also sorry to hear about your story, but I think it's good you're sharing!
