stop telling self-destructive, emotionally unstable people that they ‘do it for attention’
if i did it for attention, i wouldn’t pull down my sleeves when i self harmed, i wouldn’t hide pill bottles, i wouldn’t disguise my bulimia with running the water so you can’t hear it, i wouldn’t keep everything bottled up inside me and i sure as hell wouldn’t say ‘im fine’ when i’m not.
depression is real. people do not go through pain do to grab your attention. sorry.
