I was thinking about self-harm earlier…and why I do it.
To me it makes perfect sense.
I self-harm so I have a pain that makes sense. My mental health is so f**ked in relation to how easy my life is. I’m employed, I have a roof over my head, food in my stomach, enough income that some weeks I can get ice cream on a whim.
My head and heart shouldn’t hurt so much as they do.
Hence I cut and/or punch things. Because at least then the pain makes sense.
