BENEFITING: To Write Love on Her Arms
To Write Love on Her Arms is an organization that means alot to me. TWLOHA strives to raise awareness about addiction, self injury, depression and suicide prevention. They are my favourite organization, probably because I myself live with depression. I now treat depression as a blessing, because it has made me appreciate life more. I hope that one day I will be able to help others know that they are not alone and that it will get better.
41% of people believe that self-harm is selfish.
55% believe that it is stupid.
43% know someone that has self-harmed.
One in ten people have harmed by the age of sixteen.
Self-harm does not make you suicidal. It does not make you emo.
To Write Love On Her Arms is amazing for what they do. They help people get past their self-harm or addictions or suicidal thoughts.
You do not have to have gone through anything like this to support people dealing with it. Sometimes all people want to know is that they’re not alone. Don’t judge someone based on the marks they have on their arms. You don’t know what they’ve been through.
Rather, be proud of them for making through it.
