“The Japanese say you have three faces.
The first face, you show to the world. The second face, you show to your close friends, and your family.
The third face, you never show anyone. It is the truest reflection of who you are.”

If you don’t ask… I won’t tell.”
“When I was 12 boys slid their hand up my thigh and slapped my butt. I smiled and took it because I didn’t know it was okay to say stop. I didn’t know that I could say no. So, when the principal calls telling me my daughter is suspended for punching a boy who wouldn’t stop touching her, I will cook her favorite meals. When she tells me how she cursed at the boy who wouldn’t move his hands off her knee even though she asked him to, I will smile and pull out her favorite movie to watch together. I will celebrate the fact that she accepts her body as her own and knows she has the right to say no. I never want my daughter to think her body belongs to men, because it is her own and my god should she be proud. I will teach her it’s more than okay to say stop, something I wish I had known when I was that age.”

Why do people self harm?
Well, why do people smoke, cry or drink? It’s a way of coping, it’s an addiction, it’s something they think will help ease their pain or take the edge off. It’s hard to understand if you haven’t been in that position yourself. Self-harm may seem petty or redundant or quite horrific (and it is) but if you really think about it, every single person has their own individualistic way of handling stuff, everyone has different methods of release or coping, even if it’s to go for a walk, exercise, watch Netflix or blog. In the moment, people (specifically those suffering with mental disorders) see the pain or numbness as all-consuming, they see no way out, they’re gasping for breath as they feel all the emotions (or lack off) building behind the surface. They think hurting themselves will afford them a release. And it does, if i’m honest. But not for long. A few minutes, max. Afterwards comes the guilt, the lies, the paranoia, the need to hide it, the overthinking associated with whether it’s going to bleed through clothes, or if someone is going to see it. Then there’s also being limited in what you can wear in order to accommodate for your addiction, and not being able to put yourself in certain situation or have fun at the beach, in summer. Those who haven’t done it themselves will then question, well why do it then if it’s only momentary release? Well like i said, it’s an addiction. You do anything long enough and it becomes a habit, regardless if it causes more harm than good. Sometimes mental illnesses can be so dark and terrifying that people think this is the only way to cope with them, to help. When really, that’s not true in the slightest. Self-harm is something hard to come out of, even if we can see the circumstances. Because every time we’re put in a really difficult situation or our emotions start bubbling up or we feel the pain of the numbness in our chests, our instant thought is to hurt ourselves, we begin to feel the itch, even in the most inconvenient of spots. Idk, just my opinion, i guess. But people do and can come out of it. I’m honestly just so happy whenever someone tells me how long they’ve gone without it because it’s an amazing achievement.
