SANDY, YOU STOPPED CUTTING?! YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yeah... <:^J I'm so glad I did.
After a while... the pain and desperation just went away and the need wasn't there anymore. Everything, life... it's so much sweeter now.
How are you doing now?

Wait, I don't understand... are these like legitimate auditory hallucinations?
(... Sorry.. x_x)
If they're the other voices, then I can relate. I can relate to both, actually...
I read a graphic novel (the second Finder book) that had a character named Magri, and he was a genius... but he was so sad. And he had this voice in his head, supposed to be the voice of his baby brother who died in the womb, that told him he was nothing, and told him to kill himself ever since he was a child. He accidentally fell off a building and the voices all cheered, but some guy grabbed him... when Magri finally died of exhaustion from being used by companies and stuff for his genius, I read this part that said, "Every living creature has a voice inside them that tells them to lay down and die..."
That's when my own voices really died.


(This is rambling, but another sentence from that same book that really gave me a reality check when I was absorbed in myself and my negative self-image was, *or something like this* "No matter who you are or what you look like... someone, somewhere, is sick of your s**t." :D)

You should tell someone. Maybe they have some kind of medication to help.

How are you doing now?

Oh my gosh, Sandy, you don't know how glad I am to hear that...I've been so worried about you!!! :'D

...

Ash is so amazing at giving advice...
I know next to nothing about divorce apart from the fact that it terrified me as a kid... I was always checking that my mom wasn't cheating on my dad, asking her, watching where she was going...
All I can say is... listen to Ash. :) She knows her stuff.


...


I try to avoid hugs, but apparently I'm a really good hugger...


....


To all "cutters" or anyone who this may seem relevant to...
I don't want to be yelled at for this, but am I really the only one who thinks that we are all being far too open about these issues? I know that this is the emotional venting thread, but has anyone else noticed that these vents are becoming darker and darker as the thread goes on? Self-harm and suicide is omitted from normal day to day conversation for a reason. You guys may not think about it as you type out these things about knives and blood and cutting and as you romanticize with suicide, but this is the internet. On top of that, it's a kid's writing site. There are eyes reading these words that are younger and littler than yours, and everything they see is directly absorbed into the subconscious. Monkey see, monkey do. I know I personally would never have even considered self harm as an answer to my problems if it had not been made so painfully obvious by others on the internet, and although it's over for now, a part of me left with that knife and I'm still waiting for it to come back.
And who here has ever showed KidPub off to a friend?
OR TO A PARENT?
What do you think will happen if said parent has some free time at work on the internet, LIKE MINE DO, and decides to browse through KidPub to check out what their kid has written?


WHAT DO YOU THINK WOULD HAPPEN IF YOUR MOM OR DAD READS THIS STUFF?
If I were a parent, not only would my kid never be allowed on this site again, but I would probably email Perry about this as well! I know that my mom, being very protective, would go to all lengths to eliminate this!
Speaking of Perry, I'm a little curious as to what he thinks of all this.
He makes a site for young writers to discuss writing, and what does he get?
Suicide, suicide, cutting, depression, emo, emo, emo!
Please don't misinterpret this; I know that these things exist in all our lives, but come on, guys.
There are eight-year-olds on this site.
And the guests could be even younger.
I just want to ask... can we please try, just a LITTLE bit, to preserve them?
Because what we do to the children who read these things... we are doing to the world. And to me, the world is full of depressed people enough already.

Surely I'm not the only one who wants a break from all these bad coping habits and pent-up emotions on what was supposed to be a writing site? The Golden Days of KidPub... they were certainly not like this, were they?
I'm going to go to bed... please don't be offended by this.
But honestly... I would like frank feedback on this. I'm simply offering up an idea, a suggestion that may make KidPub not only better but SAFER.

1.) You weren't being blunt! 0_0 You were being honest.
2.) ... o_o *blinks* *glances over my shoulder* Hm? You were talking about ME? O_O Wut? XD
3.) A good hugger? XD Never heard anyone say that before....what qualifies as a good hug? Not crushing the person? In that case, I'm a REALLY BAD hugger...>_> XDD Derp.
4.) ._. I couldn't agree more, Cass...couldn't agree more.

YAY!!!!!!!
Delighted. You've blocked the temptation once more.

I don't have one of those voices.

Aww... <:^J I smiled when I read that... and saw that amazing gif... 8D
It's the least I can do... I wish I could somehow help you. :^(
Yeah... I give really emotionless advice though... OTL
I've had a couple people tell me that... I guess it's just the way you hold the person.
That... sounds really weird... >_>
Thanks. :^/
It's just... darkness and mental illness is far too glorified on the internet. I'd say it's glorified at least two thousand times more than it is in real life, because a disturbed character with a dark mental outlook makes for a good story... but this is where the problem is. I know I for one subconsciously tried to adapt myself to that because I felt it would add value to me like it did to my characters. And at that time, my mind was already warped enough as it was... I know for certain that the severity of what happened to me could have been greatly reduced if there hadn't been so much glorification of mental illness in the media that was surrounding me.
We do NOT need this on KidPub.

XD I'm glad you liked it! I would have given you http://25.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m3...wxwro1_500.gif but I already gave it to Leloo.

Nah, don't worry about me. <:^J It actually really does help me to hear that you're doing well. Reminds me not EVERYONE I know is totally screwed up! XD o_o Okay, that came out a lot more negative than I intended....really, I'm okay, Cass.

;_; i forgetz wut OTL means...*headdesk* 0_0 Your advice doesn't sound unemotional to me.

O_O Couldn't have said it better myself. *nods in agreement*
