Tried hard to put the appropriate trigger warnings in the tags. Finally felt able to make a video on self-harm. Not just telling you that “it’ll be okay”, but techniques on how to stop or replace damaging methods and people you can tell and trust. Also thoughts on what to do when you have a friend who is self-harming. I hope this is helpful.
"My life happens to, on occasion, suck beyond the telling of it. Sometimes more than I can handle. And it’s not just mine. Every single person down there is ignoring your pain because they’re too busy with their own. The beautiful ones. The popular ones. The guys that pick on you. Everyone. If you could hear what they were feeling. The loneliness. The confusion. It looks quiet down there. It’s not. It’s deafening."
the most important thing right now is you
look after yourself
put yourself first
if you aren’t okay then nothing else will seem okay either
tell yourself you’re wonderful
treat yourself right
you are the most important thing right now everything else will fall into place
