So I saw a post that pretty much summed up why I dislike a lot of people. Its probably right under this one, so check it out if you’d like.
I don’t know a lot of forms of self harm. There’s definitely cutting, and over-doing all that drug and alcohol stuff. Some people pull out their hair. Others eat too much, some eat to much and throw it all back up, while some don’t eat at all. I’m personally quite familiar with hitting one’s self. Other people just shut down and can’t bring themselves to go out in the world.
I’m not going to say I’m an expert of love and growth and confidence. It takes garganutan effort to get out of bed most days, let alone look at myself in the mirror. I’m not a beautiful butterfly that made it through, and I’m not there anymore with the rest of you who still hurt yourself.
But I want to say this, and I want you all to know it’s true. I care, I don’t think you’re seeking attention, and whatever you’re going through is important. It’s most definitely sucks, but it means something to you. And there are more people out there who care as well and respect you no matter what. We want to support you in whatever you’re going through, and hope to god you get better. You don’t have to be perfect, you don’t have to be constantly happy, but someday we all hope you will find what it takes.
So don’t let assholes get a word in. If you have cuts on your legs but you want to wear shorts, do it. Fucking do it, because those are your battle scars and you shouldn’t be ashamed of them ever. If you have any disorders, or illnesses never let anyone make you feel like that’s all you are- a disorder. You are so much more than that, and don’t let anyone tell you any different.
