Well, because it is pretty. It's a beautiful red colour and the smallest of drops can only be admired for a few seconds before it dries up. A bag of blood you can stare at for hours on end but lots of blood such as at a crime scene in a movie, highlights how how even more beautiful blood really is. The light often makes it look a lot nicer than a bag of blood and it does dry up eventually. It's also amazing to think that something as pretty as that is what keeps us alive. We don't see blood often because of this but when we do, it's a sight to behold.
when you've been a self harmer for a while most people like the way their blood looks. that only you can really know the answer to
If you can't stop thinking about the beautiful idea of blood don't worry. Maybe I'm not a psychologist but I have come through it. Thinking on blood isn't bad at all. It's like people thinking shoes are pretty or that they like sports. Blood and death are beautiful subjects to think about, just remember that in 18th century, during the Romanticism, there were plenty of poets, writers and artist thinking about that all day and it result was the best literature and art ever. My only advice is for you to not be afraid of yourself. Don't harm yourself. Just let the art flow and make some artworks worth your own time.
It can have lots of reasons. Personally, looking at blood made me feel more in control of my life when everything went haywire. It looked pretty coming out, making me feel that yes, I can do something, even if it is harming myself.
Blood is amazing because of everything it's capable of. It helps us transfer nutrients and oxygen to so many parts of our body. However, it's better useful IN our bodies. So why not leave it in there to make sure it does its job?
It's beautiful to me because it reminds me I'm alive! I'm here! No matter what I do I'm not important to anyone and when my importanance is taken away I feel less alive. The sting of the cool blade and sight of the beautiful crimson blood reminds me I'm still here.
Blood is a deep red color and sometimes happens when you bleed when you get injured. If you cut to see blood might mean that you're just cutting to know that your alive and breathing or maybe you might be cutting to have a scar, to know that sometimes when something happens you are alive and not dead somewhere.
Sometimes, you get so caught up in giving up your pain that you find things more attractive than usual. When you wanna forget your trouble, the blood feels so nice that you just forget that it hurts, it almost feels good. You still have the pain, but you just love the pain so much it's hardly noticable.
It could be because you are experiencing thoughts of harm, there is nothing wrong with this but i suggest that you talk to a professional about these thought.
You need professional help. You are clearly suicidal and are about to hit a very dangerous trigger point
people get addicted to the way it looks and that isnt a good thing cause it could cause you to hurt youself or others
I've noticed that people have an obsession over things that are considered taboo so if you eradicate the idea that its strange your obsession will go away
Perhaps you have a blood lust, maybe you should see a counselor. Only if it upsets you, if not then you shouldnt worry to much.
