Let him be how ever he wants to be. Let him be himself....just make sure he isn't cutting himself.

Excellent  advice val, If he wants to be emo what are you going to do about it? what can you do about it? As long as he isnt hurting himself, let him be

Re: I need help: my friend has gone emo

Emo is ok to be. A cutter is not good. If that is the case then I say that you tell someone more qualified to help with out betraying their trust.

Re: I need help: my friend has gone emo

Ahhh......I have emo friends aswell. I'm not sure if they cut themselves but, here are three of them , Ollie, Will and Kieran.

AA, is right. If he isn't cutting himself, that is good news, but if he is.....then you need to make him come from ze darkness. neutral smile



( How can you cut yourself with a pencil. I thought they did it with those silver aluminum razor blades? )

Re: I need help: my friend has gone emo

Has anything happened in his life that could have made him turn this way? Something bad? Maybe find out what it is and then help him through it. Or is there a girl he likes that's emo and he's being this way to try and get with her? Maybe help him look for someone else.

Just thoughts and ideas.

I don't know on the cutting, maybe try telling him scars are ugly or the pencils could poison him or tell him how much it upsets you that he does this. Or show him this thread? Maybe that will show him how much you care and it'll help.

Reality doesn't care if you believe in it.

Re: I need help: my friend has gone emo

I was about to say that modern pencils are made from graphite ( a natural mineral) and are practically harmless, unlike the old school lead versions which were not. 

Try to encourage other ways to vent, which is what my friend who once was a cutter said her cutting was. She wasn't trying to kill herself, but rather release the negative feelings through the comfort of pain. She generally used sissors for this, not blades and on her legs, not her arms where her mom would noticed. She stopped around the time she got married. Cutting is generally something people hide, so if you know about what your friend is doing, it very well may be a cry for help.

Yes there has I talk to him quite a bit. But he has asked that I do not expose the information.
I am one of the only few he trusts.
I wish it to stay that way.
It seems know that all I can do is Pray and Might I ask a Favor from every body on the sight, Please, even if you don't believe,  pray for him.

It does help. And I'm sure God will do something about it.

( Not in a nasty way, I believe in God, so he will do something about it smile )

Re: I need help: my friend has gone emo

Such faith can only be good.  Being supportive as a friend can help too, knowing that someone IS there for them. But if you think that it is getting more serious, like closer to suicide thats when its ok to tell for their sake.

Re: I need help: my friend has gone emo

That's really good to hear.

The thing is, if he doesn't know if he wants to ' be ' emo, then maybe you should say something like.........

" If your not sure about being emo , then maybe you should just be your normal self. What do you think? "
