Over two million Americans self harm...
Many people think that we are just sick.
But we all release pain in our own sick way.
Drinking, bullying, screaming at loved ones, drugs, fighting, road rage, cheating/affairs, stealing, eating disorders/anorexia. The list goes on and on.
Our method just leaves the scars to prove it.
And unfortunately it works.
Cutting yourself releases endorphins a "natural high".
It feels so good for the moment.
But the pain returns and the scars don't leave.
We become more ashamed because of the things people say.
All we want to do is do it again and again,
to show them that they cant change what we do no matter what they say.
Leave us alone.
Before you yell at your kids, your friends, your family, just remember
They're only releasing pain
Is it really that big of a deal?
