I made a mistake while shaving and I started bleeding. Of course, the cut wasn’t deep and it obviously wouldn’t leave any scars. But still, I was in the middle of trying to stop cutting and seeing the blood triggered something in me.
Stress arises in every situations. But everyone’s way of coping with it is very different. I had a low stress threshold and bleeding was my way of getting the inner demon out.
Cutting is disgusting. I hate seeing my scars even now.
But how should I deal with stress? If I can’t punish myself, who’s gonna punish me?
