If someone else cuts you, a friend will betray you.

The phenomenon of “cutting” is a ritualized addiction where a person deliberately cuts himself or herself as a stress-relief mechanism. People who cut will describe a satisfaction in having an interior experience of emotional pain expressed physically on the body. Being cut in a dream, whether self-inflicted or otherwise, is a similar action by the unconscious mind to express inner pain in an outward manner.
