Hey guys,
I’m sorry if the spelling is terrible on this one, I’m shaking.
Honestly, I would just like to take a second to say that it’s okay to ask for help. Friends, family, a teacher. HELL, IF NOONE ELSE WILL BE THERE FOR YOU THEN I WILL

I logged on to my account today and started scrolling through my reader to see a post called “it ends tonight”. I feel like a part of me immediately knew what this meant because I’ve written them in my journal as a promise to myself so many times. It was one of the newbie bloggers that I’ve started subscribing to lately. She was one of the ones that I’ve been meaning to comment onto one of her posts with my email so she could talk to me if she needed to

I guess it’s a little too late now.

I feel like shit, in her last post she stated how nobody was there and all of her friends lost interest in her life.
Maybe this could’ve been prevented… I don’t know

Depression is something I talk about casually around here because it’s a part of my every day life. It’s something I’ve gotten used to even though I guess you’re not supposed to. Rationally, I know that. Help is nothing to be ashamed of guys. Don’t follow in my footsteps, if you’re feeling low, please just vent to someone, if you can’t then journaling is a GREAT alternative too. Keeping it bottled up is the worst thing for you to do
If anyone needs to talk email me : iheartsumocyco@yahoo.com
I’ll respond within the day.

The Self Injury “Trend” / If you’re cutting because it’s cool

Well, I’ll be honest. There’s not anything I find most disgusting than someone that would WILLING harm themselves to make some fashion statement or to fit in or because they think it’s cool. Harming yourself is up there with smoking cigarettes, you think it makes you look so cool, but in reality you look awful and it’s doing terrible things for your health.
This becoming a trend is beginning to get popular amongst the younger generations, generally¬†around the time of middle school (about 11-14 years old) and I’m not just ranting on about nothing this is something I’ve witnessed first hand.
No matter if it’s cutting or burning it’s all the same, they leave scars and believe me, the scars left can be pretty gruesome
I remember in the 8th grade my best friend would leave very shallow cuts on her arms and walk around showing them off like battle scars when really she was an imposter for the war. Normally I’m not the type to judge and normally I would question it for another motive “maybe she’s just calling out for help in her own way” which wasn’t true, she went to a hospital and went to therapists and it all came back she was completely fine.
Her only problem was she wanted to fit in with her friends that also self-harmed and she wanted people to feel bad for her so she could have more friends. She would even openly discuss her battles with cutting as if it were a struggle for her for the length of her entire life. Don’t be her. Sure, she was only making light cuts but that doesn’t make a difference. Just as easily the blade could have slipped, it only takes once.
Don’t put your life in danger just to please someone else.
