I drew this for my friend who lives in New York. She's really struggling and I wanted her to know that I'm here for her even if I live across the country. This is a serious subject for me, so please be respectful. Thank you<3
And if anybody's going through this...Do NOT be afraid to talk to me. I'm more than willing to help you. Honestly (: I LOVE YOU ALL OKAY~!

Can you not what? Draw about cutting and give some support/awareness to it? 

I know all too well it's not appealing to look to someone else with wandering eyes and find some scars or even fresh cuts on their skin.
I found out my ex-best friend was cutting themselves frequently and forgot to hide them around me after a while. But on the flip side, I myself have cut for the past three or so years on and off so getting a look of "what the hell is this" when people look to you because you slip up in hiding scars can make you feel like a freak and it's literally one of the worst feelings ever. It's my fault of course for making the choice, but as any addiction goes as soon as you give it a chance to control you once you may lose the ability to stop it yourself. 

And after seeing and meeting so many people who have ended up being covered in scars or have some sort of story to tell, I don't see how it's "disturbing". It's literally like seeing a rash from an allergic reaction. With cutting typically comes depression, anxiety, etc. So it's literally just a really horrible coping mechanism that some turn to because people find it easier to have a razor or a knife stashed in their room than to ask for help. It's kind of just a sign of "Oh hey something is definitely wrong here." 

Lol I'm getting salty over a comment that's almost a year old. If you don't see it as disturbing or something anymore then I'm sorry for the rant.

i hate to be the one to say this, but that is a very good way to spread viral and bacterial diseases such as AIDS. But I like your drawing skills my emo friend and I am unable to change this dancing penguin cuz i don't know how.
