Today, March 1, is Self Injury Awareness Day.

It really makes my heart hurt knowing people that have physically or emotionally injured themselves. The saying “we are our own worst enemies” is definitely true. I think we can hurt ourselves more than anyone can, and I wish that we as people could all start being open about how we feel rather than bottling our feelings up.

The goal of the people who observe Self Injury Awareness Dayย is to break down the common stereotypes surrounding self harm. Sure, there are many other causes in the world that are perhaps less personal and depressing, but I feel like this is important to be aware about because there are so many people that hurt themselves. And well, they need love. These things need to brought out into the open. That’s the only way there can be change. So think about it today…about how we can reach out or even just be willing to be reached out to. It’s time to break the [si]lence.

  1. Haha how coincidental ๐Ÿ™‚ Remember my story idea? I’m hoping if I do finish it and publish it that it will be a message of hope for those that hurt themselves and for those who think there is no one out there for them. Good post ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Haha yes! I thought it was very coincidental. ๐Ÿ™‚
