remember the time i cut too deep and needed a dozen stitches but didn’t bother?
and how it got infected?
and how i couldn’t use my arm for weeks because of the intense pain from hitting muscle and infection?
remember how fucking terrible that was? because i do.
is it romantic? no.
is it glamorous? no.
is it fashionable? no.
is it beautiful? absolutely not.
these were a couple of the most horrible weeks i have dealt with in regards to self-harm. it’s not cute or romantic or beautiful, it’s fucking horrible. so, stop promoting self harm and eating disorders and stop romanticizing depression and mental illness.
stop promoting things you don’t understand.
stop romanticizing things that hurt and things you do not understand.
