What is the Issue?
Who does this effect? Why?
"I've Been self-harming since the 9th grade. Last week was the last time i self-harmed, because i promise my sister that i wouldn't do it anymore but its getting very hard to keep my promise" -Anonymous
"I've started self-harming after my parents divorced and the continuing of arguing. Along with that a close family friend died (3 years ago). I felt lost and hopeless, and lifeless. When my sister found out, my heart shattered when I saw her face. Disappointment and sadness. She made me promise never to do that again. I've tried but I've broken it many times since last year in September. That was when she found out. I began gaining hope when I began writing, reading, and drawing out my feelings. I haven't done it (cutting) since the New Year's Day, January 1, 2015" -Nichole Bugner
