When people ask you to cover your scars “because of their kids”
Or for any reason… (Isippedthesea, you know who I’m talking about!)
- student: hey government can I have some money to go to university
- uk government: sure here you go. you'll have to pay it back but only when you're earning £21,000+ a year, and if you don't pay it off after 30 years we'll just write it off, don't worry about it man
- scottish government: nah man just go to uni we ain't gonna charge you
- us government: no. you gotta pay it yourself. upfront. your parents have to save up from the moment you're born. good luck, fucker.
"Do not ask the price I pay. I must live with my quiet rage. Tame the ghosts in my head that run wild and wish me dead…"
I get a little tired of hearing people try to convince others not to self harm by reminding them of what their scars will be like. Yes, it is something to think about and is a big deal, but the more important thing is you don’t deserve to hurt yourself. You don’t deserve to experience even more pain. You don’t deserve to suffer through an addiction. You don’t deserve to feed into your self hate. You deserve a happiness that you can’t remember very clearly.
