Self-Harm is NOT Death
The one thing I hate about talk about self-harm is that everyone thinks that it’s a suicide attempt. I look at people with their scars and think how brave they are. They are brave because they decided to live.
You live with the self-harm. It’s not the end. It’s a way to cope. It’s not exactly healthy. But it’s how we get through the crappy day or crisis.
I cut, or I used to. I still want to…really badly. But I’ve resisted.
When I have a bad day, I want to cut. When I’m bored, I want to cut. When things get really tough or I get pissed off, I want to cut.
Self-harm isn’t the answer, but it’s not the end.
Keep holding your head up high. WE will get through this.
