Why do people glorify self harm? there are so many pictures/gifs floating around tumblr that it makes me anxious. Self harm is not beautiful or delicate its someone who got so desperate that they thought they had no other option but to hurt themselves. Its an act that can seriously damage a person and even take a persons life. Its something that becomes such a part of you that you can’t change it, and its something that defines you in a way. These photos are not art. Self harm is seriously becoming “mainstream” dare I say.
Self harm is desperation, hurt, anger, depression, anxiety and every other emotion wrapped into one act that literally scars a person. It shouldn’t be glorified, and its making me sick watching people do exactly that every day.
You may disagree, but that is what’s happening whether people see it that way or not.
