Is hurting yourself the way to escape the pressure?

 

Many people these days find life so stressful and harsh that some have erratic ways to relieve the stress, especially hurting themselves like cutting their own hands and so on. According to me, that is not the best way.

 

A friend of mine was drowning in some kind of invisible desperation that she decided to cut her hand to escape the pressure. I was shocked when I heard the news. She was one of the most perfect girls I have ever known. She is adorable and pretty. She can sing, play different kinds of music instruments and her hairs are pink, which is pretty cool to me. Our school is a great and selective school so I’m sure she is academically good, too. We all are. Then why did she have to hurt herself in such a creepy manner.  I love my friend, so I hate to see such uneasy and tiresome incidents that happen to her like that. When I ask her the reason why, she said she loved the feeling of being hurt. I felt bad. I wanted to help her and talk to her, be someone she can share and confine in.

 

I cannot help myself from wondering why such an awesome individual who owns so many things finds such an unusual way to satisfy her need, the need of pain. I gradually recognize her loneliness. I believe she stuck in a situation in which she has too much that she is not deeply aware of what she is having and where she is standing. She had about 40 dislikes on youtube and she already saw it as a catastrophe. It is not acceptable since Justin Bieber who has more dislikes than likes survives through all and a great girl like her decided to find pressure and a way to escape in such horrifying ways.

 

I believe everyone has something deep inside that he or she cannot run away from, something might be haunting and terrifying. But there is always a way to relieve the pain and the stress. People have different ways to entertain themselves like watching movies, hanging out with friends, playing music and so on. It should always to a way out. And hurting oneself is an unwise and regretting way to relieve stress since it is just incredibly dangerous and may increase the level of depression. Pain is not an escape.
