By friend loves a gay guy... - 23/09/2013 20:49 - United States - Cincinnati

Today, my best friend told me that she no longer wants to cut herself because now she's madly in love with a guy in our school. She doesn't know that he's gay. FML

Better to break the news to her now over Ben and Jerry's and romantic comedies rather than have her figure it out alone.That's what best friends are for; there for the good, bad and ugly.

That's a terrible thing to say! Do you even know what emotional trauma people go through which leads them to cut? I am personally very happy that she's stopped, and I am sure her friend will be able to help her in this situation.

Consequences of serious FML's on a site meant to be funny. Either you stop posting somber FML's or don't take the jokes too seriously.

#57 I found that funny. And totally appropriate.

Oh so I show the guys and get -200 likes, you point it out and get +65, this site is messed man

Also, don't be judgemental assholes people, I went through some insane depression and have cut before, don't assume people are being jerks, this site is to let off steam and laugh, just be chill about shit, don't let it get to your heads, just have fun

wow harsh

FYL OP. And as sad as it is, when she finds out she probably will go back to cutting, potentially worse. I suggest doing your best to get her help while you still can. Good luck.

You just said it. LOL.

Well.. Ya still said it. Haha. Pointing out what you were gonna say, then trying to retract said comment isn't much better.. Ah damn it, you edged me out of that one. Eh? Eh?.. Damn.

#20- Yeah, "Oops". I bet your comment was a complete accident... -_-

....uh, she can't, and in trying, feels like a massive failure and goes back to more self destructive behaviour, perhaps even killing herself in the process. Not the happy ending Op probably wants for her friend. :p

Maybe introduce her to some people or go out together to try and meet some guys or pout out other guys. But I say you should tell her he's gay...the sooner the better.

I really feel for you. I've been in a similar situation and your friend needs help and support. You are a good friend for caring, she obviously trusts you if she feels comfortable talking about it. Best wishes.

Spellcheck? No.. Way too fucking many periods? Yes.. I. Don't. Get. Why. People. Type. Like. This. MAYBE. ALL. CAPS. MAKE. A. DIFFERENCE? NOPE. STILL. PRETTY. STUPID.

#THEN.#THIS.#WOULD.#WORSE.

alternate caps. much worse

It's because on some phones the period is next to the spacebar.

Well 114 it's called proof reading.

I think I may have killed some brain cells reading these painfully joking comments that mimic about spelling, grammar and punctuation. Good job everyone! :P

You must have missed that day of primary school when they taught that "knives" is the plural of "knife".

No use :/ Cutters will find other ways to self-mutilate when they're in desperate need to numb their pain.

A while back I used to self harm by burning myself. I threw away all my lighters and matches to try and stop myself, but after a while I turned to cutting. Getting rid of what she uses to self harm won't help.

#24, agreed. After my father passed and my ex boyfriend sexually assaulted me, I spun into a dark hole of depression and self harm. My friends tried taking things away but when you're in that mindset, you find ways to get around it. I found a round skipping rock once and used that. A freaking round rock. It's almost like a drug, just taking away a drug cold turkey usually won't solve the problem. You've got to actually be there for them and show them their self worth.

Not to mention taking away sharp objects wouldn't help, because something as innocent as a pencil sharpener can be turned into an object for cutting, it would make her feel like you can't trust her in anyway and she needs to be babysat.

As much as it would pain her to find out, she has to know. It would be far worse for her to think that there's a possibility that he could be interested in her, and then figure out that she was being lead along by her best friend. While it may seem like a cruel thing to do (especially after she just stopped cutting herself)...the alternative could have worse implications. But perhaps try to help her become interested in someone else before breaking the news to her. Better a gentle letdown than a huge one.

have him break the news to her, otherwise she won't believe you & cut you.

Depression doesn't make you completely psychotic, you know. But perhaps you knew that, and are just an asshole.

I think he's just an asshole.
