The emotions are too much (self harm mentioned)
I saw this scene in one of my favourite TV shows, and instantly classed it as my favourite. Why? Because this girls words are echoing my thoughts.
I don't know how to start, so I'm just gonna go for it.
For some reason, every LITTLE thing has started bothering me. And the grief, it's overwhelming. Half the time I don't even know WHY I'm sad.
I self harmed. Twice for the first time last week. I haven't done it since, but the urge, instead of going away it gets stronger... and I'm scared that, one day, I'm not gonna wanna fight it anymore.
Right now... In this moment, I do. And I want support, If someone somewhere can give it. I want hope, like this image gives me. It gives me hope because it makes me realise that I'M NOT THE ONLY ONE. It makes me realise that somehow, it will get better.
