Opinions may be honest...dead on...they may also be bought, coerced, fear based or malicious. Know for yourself. Ask.
I hate seeing young people resort to hurting themselves in an attempt to hurt others. All of a sudden once well behaved scholars begin acting out and choosing unsavory friends. Others may feel empathy while you recuperate from your lapse in judgment, but they won't feel it directly. Find a better way to get attention.
