Self-Harm Awareness Day
As many of you I’m sure know, today, March 1 is self-harm awareness day.
As someone who has self-harmed, I understand the pain that leads to that feeling. The feeling that any physical pain will be better than the pain that haunts your mind, the pain that you can’t do anything about, so you hurt yourself, to take your mind off the other pain. I understand it well, and it sucks, you feel so alone and everything hurts.
I want you all to know that I’m here to talk, if any of you ever need it. If you need anything at all, I will respond as soon as possible. That’s one reason I’m here, I’m always here to help, and to listen. I might not be able to fix the situation or even give you advice but if you need a listening, un-judging ear, you know how to contact me.
In the meantime, try to do something to get your mind off it, emerge yourself in something that makes you happy. Internet, art, TV shows, fangirling, anything. Just know that you, no matter who you are deserve love and you are worth so much and I love you.
Stay strong, ok? And if you need more than I can do, there are places designed specifically for helping. I’ll leave some links below.
