Do all emos cut themself? Do I HAVE to cut myself if I wanna be a real emo?
Question Posted Sunday June 10 2012, 10:32 am
I'm 13 and I loove Emo style or their music(BVB)
1st question is...I don't cut myself. Do I have to do it if I wanna be a real emo? And also I'm a cheerful person so, am I not Emo for that? I have nothing to be sad about in my life.
You should be who YOU are, Not what others say you should be. I do nt know where you got the cutting idea from but not every 'emo' cuts themselves and those that do? Need help to stop. It is not something they do to be cool or fit in...
mermaid1919 answered Monday June 11 2012, 1:36 pm: the reason why most people cut them selves is because they are depressed , you dont have to cut yourselve if you wanna have that emo look. i went through a stage where i loved the emo look but i didnt cut myself cause i was to happy to do that. now though im like a preppy kind of girl, sorta. haha well anyways, no you dont have to cut yourselve and i advise you never cut yourselve because it gets addicting then your parents would find out and it ruins your life.

Emos are stereotyped as being very emotional, which most people understand as being depressed, dramatic and suicidal. BUT the word emotion covers ALL emotions so you can be a happy, cheerful, life-affirming, inspiring emo!
Please do, because if everyone who wants to be emo think they have to be suicidal and depressed when they really aren't, it's going to be a very unhappy world. Even if emos were all expected to be depressed and miserable all the time, I'd puch for you to be happy - what's life for if not to be enjoyed? Have a happy life!
Hope this helps, let me know how you get on?
Best wishes, XX. [ Carriebeca's advice column | Ask Carriebeca A Question ]

AskSinz answered Sunday June 10 2012, 4:58 pm: You do not have to cut yourself or be depressed to be a real emo. Emo is about fashion not about lifestyle, a way of dressing and expressing yourself through clothes and make-up. Self harm is completely separate to being emo it just so happens that people have decided to associate it with being emo which is not the case.
