This is something I've been wanting to write for a while. I self-harmed for over three years, having finally stopped this January just gone. And something that really annoys me is when I see people romanticising it and making it out to be something beautiful. Maybe I even bought into that idea too, perhaps I even promoted it. But that's why romanticising something like self-harm is so dangerous; it makes it look like it's an okay thing to do, that it's cool and beautiful or whatever. It isn't. It's dangerous, painful and incredibly unhealthy. You hurt yourself and you hurt everyone around you, everyone who cares; even if you think there isn't anyone who cares, trust me, there always is.
Sorry for the rant, but I really wanted to say it. If you ever need to talk about self-harm or if you have any questions, always feel free to note me.
