self harm

By lilwinry121
Self harm is a forbidden topic in most social situations and when it is mentioned or found out, it is more often than not seen as attention seeking. Sometimes that is the case, but when it is the case, that person Needs that attention. They need help. We all do. Self harm is a bad coping mechanism, one for relief, to feel something, an escape.. there are endless reasons why but in reality it comes down to having bad mental health and not having the help we need.
If you are suffering from self harm like I did in the past, please contact a medical professional, talk to those close to you and find a different form of coping. You dont deserve the scars, you do not deserve the pain. You are incredible and worth so much more than what society has told you

I love all of you. you are all so amazing and you all have stories to tell, not all good but all worth listening to.

the quote at the top was wrote by please go look at their work if you like this.

I hope you understand and like this picture

Wow, this actually brought tears to my eyes... Thank you so much for sharing it. It is a lot of inspiration for me, especially since I'm trying to stop and it's been a couple months, but it's hard everyday, I'm always tempted to go back... 
It doesn't really help that none of my friends are understanding of it... None of them know what I do, but they have made their views on self harm clear enough that I'm afraid of what they will think of me if I do tell them... 
Anyways, thanks for the inspiration to stop.

youre most welcome my dear Im glad that you are trying your best to stop
look at the road ahead like a path of stepping stones, each day is one but some are more slippy stones than others. If you do slip up its okay, when you are ready stand back up, look how far you got and then try again this time aiming to get further than before and one day you will completely make it out of the darkness
there may be storm clouds ahead but whats a little rain if you can see a rainbow after it all?
Im sorry to hear about your friends if you ever need someone to talk to about this please message me on here or kik (if you have it, please note me your username)
*hugs* I wish you the best on your journey through life darling stay well x
