When I first began cutting, my best guy friend saw on my legs and arms. I was at a volleyball tournament and he pulled me aside from my friends. He then held me there in a hug and said "what are you doing?" To which i replied "I could ask you the same thing." My friend ran his fingers across the scars and cuts and looked me right in the eyes and said "beautiful girls like you shouldn't hurt themselves. It hurts the boys who love those girls." Not only did I stop cutting right then and there but we started dating.
