Many aren’t aware of this day and its importance and there are those that may be misinformed into thinking it is only about self harm as in *trigger warning* cutting and the like. I am going to attach a picture of the many ways a person self harms; I can say that I’ve self harmed for a very long time and I am in recovery, its going to take me awhile to recover because many of my behaviors I have been doing since I was a child.
I’d like to introduce you to the picture, this the first one I’ve ever seen that has displayed the many different ways a person self harms and how many do today and don’t even know they are.

Upon review, I can see many of my self harming behaviors on this chart. Its sad but I am hopeful for recovery, even though I know you never fully recover, you do however, become much more aware of your behaviors that may trigger if not paying attention to the cues.
