This is something that’s been annoying me for a while, people seem to think you can’t be unhappy if you haven’t scars to prove it. I were diagnosed with depression 2 years ago, even my councillor didn’t think I needed help as I hadn’t self harmed. Whilst growing up I had to watch some of the closest people to me self harm, it broke them, and me. I knew from then on I wouldn’t put myself through it and because of that I don’t get taken seriously. This is for those who have problems and don’t show it. Everyone needs support, with or without scars.
This is exactly why I quit the therapy i was assigned to when I was 18… The first question they asked was what kind of harm I did to deal with the pain… and when I said I didn’t do anything and had never thought of doing anything, i found myself looking upon a councilor with a look on his face that read ‘you don’t belong here’ and a simple ‘oh’ and no further questions were asked… because I walked out…
This. everyone has their own way of releasing pain.
it is just plain stubid to just think that only those with scars suffer the most.
and it is true that having scars don’t mean that you are just seeking attention no.
They all need help. Be there scars or not.
Most of them just don’t know how to seek help. some know how to but are too afraid of… something.
