International Self-injury Awareness Day is MARCH 1ST.
Wear orange, write “love” on your arms, or draw a butterfly or orange ribbon on your wrist to support those who have or still are struggling with self-harm.
Show you care and understand!
This day is not only to show support, love, care, and understanding to people who have or still are self-harming, but to educate people on what it is, and eliminate some of the stereotypes involved in self-harm.

This is my 2nd year promoting online & trying to raise awareness.
This year, thankfully, my platform is larger.
I’m not only a promoter. I’m a sufferer.
Show your support for your friends and loved ones.
Please share & reblog this post. Be there as a shoulder to cry on, as arms for a hug, as a friend ~ to listen.

There are many forms of self-mutilation besides cutting.

My friend Tim Wood, (of Caveman Poetry fame), shared this with me via Facebook today. I LoveLoveLove it! It’s nice to have a phobia that isn’t fuzzy, gross, or uncomfortable.
