So, as most of you know, i often have phases of interest in Tumblr. Sometimes i post loads, then i can go months without a single post. It still amazes me that i have any followers at all haha. However, thanks for sticking around guys.
I have come back to Tumblr in the search for help and knowledge on a particular subject.
Now, i want to make it clear that i do not, and never have, in any way, self harmed. However i have recently been confronted with helping someone who has started to harm themselves… Although only slightly, light scratches etc, I am worried it could develop into a more serious ‘habit’ so to speak.
I am not an idiot, I understand this person is in a very dark place right now, and i believe i can help them… I believe i have helped them. However i want to know more for future reference and to help this person, or anyone else who self harms and comes to me for help and guidance.
I am also conscious that any one of you reading this may not want to delve into your own personal experiences to a complete stranger, ie myself, but please do not simply scroll on. I want… I need your help. Please, remain anonymous if you would prefer, i am not asking for your details, i am simply asking for your advice and answers to some of the following questions…
-Why do you, or anyone, choose to self harm? Is it to hide/cover up mental pain etc?
-What truly drives a person to do this to themselves?
-And, how can i stop this person doing it?
Answering the above and offering anything else you care to share would be amazing. I would be truly grateful. Message me, tweet me @jordzjake, email me Jordzperry@gmail.com
Thanks guys, Jordan x
