Aww, thank you so much! :DDDD
It is easy for him to say that no one understands him because I think he feels as if no one can relate to him. This is really his personal battle with himself. It is easy to feel helpless and frustrated when someone has gone through a lot but has not gotten enough help or guidance to let go of the past. Perhaps he isn’t strong enough to believe that cutting is not the answer. And you’re right, it isn’t.
I think all he needs is someone to be there for him. He doesn’t deserve any of the shit he’s gotten in the past anyway, so I would continuously keep telling him ‘hey dude i’m here for you’ and remind him that he doesn’t have to feel this way, he just has to keep pushing himself to let go of his daily struggles and to move on. He is in charge of his own happiness for sure, but if he’s not strong enough, then you can ALWAYS help. I’m not saying he’s not strong by himself but help is always… well, helpful.
It can be hard to move on, but if I’m having a hard time accepting something, I just tell myself to move on and let it go. There is nothing you can do to change the past except move forward because there’s always room for a more positive future.
Additionally, no one is perfect. I am sure everyone has had daily struggles with the way they perceive themselves. So don’t let him think that just because he’s gone through shit doesn’t mean he should let it define him at all. Cutting is not only hurting him but he is inflicting imperfection on himself by committing this act. I hate cutting. It’s never the answer to a problem, EVER; it just makes things a lot worse than they usually are.
Since you are trying to help him right now and stand by his side, I think you should just encourage him. A lot. Cutting doesn’t define him, like I said, he shouldn’t let it define the fact that he’s been abused and beaten etc. Plus, if it didn’t matter, why would you be there for him in the first place? I’m not saying he’s being selfish by rejecting your kind words, but don’t give up on him. I think that’s the last thing he wants.
I’m sorry if I’m blabbering on and on and I don’t make any sense right now because tbh I’ve never been in this situation with a friend before and I’m just saying what I would do if I was in this situation.
I hope your friend gets better. I’m sure he has some hidden unique potential he just hasn’t found out yet. :)
Oh, my cats are doing fine.
They’re all thinking and doing usual cat things.
Sorry, I don’t get on Facebook often. I don’t even run it myself. I have people do it for me since I’m so busy all the time
disciplining my cats and eating taquitos on the couch because yolo
OOC: Sorry I haven’t been on in a while, but I just wanted to say some things about the fandom before sciddly-daddling my way. I’ve noticed this on some of the text posts I’ve reblogged etc.
I feel like this fandom, whether it’s Murderdolls or Slipknot, does not exactly have the nicest people in it. I mean, yeah, we have some crazy fangirls here and there, then we have the ‘smartass’ ones, then we have the normal ones, then the not so much ‘fans’, then the ones who are nice, tolerable, and kind and blah blah blah
Lately I’ve been noticing that some people aren’t aware of what’s going on with Slipknot in their current situation. We have a few who are just absolutely freaking out, some who have no idea what’s going on, and some who just don’t care at all.

BLACK PICTURE ON INSTAGRAM, THEIR WHOLE OFFICIAL WEBSITE IS BLACK, THEIR TWITTER IS ALL BLACK, THEY POST A BLACK PHOTO ON THE FACEBOOK WHAT’S HAPPENENING????
