  • Because they are failing to control themselves from something that causes self harm. Not very logical right but understandable

  • Because that's the impression they give off. They're too weak to handle their situation like a mature person so they damage their bodies - the thing that is them. They're too weak to figure out a solution for themselves.

    So... that's why people call them weak.

What Girls Said 1

  • Weak because they give into the temptation of hurting oneself.
    Attention seeking because they're coping in a way that is visible to others
