is not an attention seeking phase. it is an addiction.
are not a fashion statement. They are addictions and disorders that slowly kill the individual struggling with it.
is not the cowards way out. it becomes the last option only when someone feels that there is nothing left. but thats not true, there is always something new to try. keep trying new things until you find the one thing that distracts your thoughts.
is not just feeling sad one day. it is debilitating. you feel like the world is crushing you down and even getting out of bed takes so much energy, it becomes a miracle when you get dressed in the morning.
is not being rude to people around you. some people just dont like being touched or around crowds, please respect that.
isnt just mood swings.
isnt made up. it is caused by severe trauma. usually childhood sexual abuse.
it is never ever your fault. please tell someone before it gets worse, so that the person hurting you doesnt hurt someone else.
clothes a person wear dont cause rape. rape isnt exclusively male on female, males can rape males, females can rape females, and females can rape males. never blame the victim.
if you or someone you knows struggles with any of these things, please know that i am here for you. i want to help you as much as i can. i want you to know that you arent alone, other people understand. my ask is always open, feel free to leave me a message if you ever need to talk.
