-41% of people believe that self-harm is selfish.
-55% of people believe that it is stupid.
-43% of people know someone that has self-harmed.
1 in 10 people have harmed themselves by the age of 16.
Self-harm does not make you suicidal.
It does not make you emo.
It is simply a way that many use to rid themselves of stress or pain or whatever it may be.
Over 3 million people in the US have self-harmed or still do.
Cutting is not just a girl’s disorder.
Anyone can do it.
Males, females, and persons that don’t fit into the gender binary.
And it is not just teens, either.
Both Princess Diana and Johnny Depp have gone through it.
The person who always seems “so happy” could be victim to it.
There are other forms of self-harm besides cutting or mutilation.
Some people don’t realize they’re doing it.
Some people don’t think it’s wrong.
Some people become addicted.
People don’t hide their cuts or marks hoping someone will find them
…unless they actually want help to get better.
It’s often hidden because they’re afraid of someone seeing.
An orange ribbon is used as a self-harm awareness symbol.
Those suffering from it..
…have been through it
…or support it
often wear one.
You do not have to have gone through anything like this to support it.
Sometimes all people want to know is that they’re not alone.
Don’t judge someone based on the marks they have on their arms.
You don’t know what they’ve been through.
Rather, be proud of them for making through it.
Life can be a bitch.
