SELF-HARM IS NOT A TREND

SELF-HARMING IS NOT A TREND
Fidget spinning is a trend.

Self-harming is a physical symptom of a very dark illness, with psychological scars that last much, much longer and cut so much more deeply, than the flesh ones will. A spiralling tail-spin in to an abyss with no way out except to seek more pain and darkness.

 

ANOREXIA IS NOT A CLUB
Gymnastics is a club.

Anorexia is a highly dangerous condition which will literally rot your body from the inside out, stretching into every part of your future with consequences too many to count. Your ability to start a family or live a long life, being just two of them.

Self-harm is not a trend

BULIMIA IS NOT A SOLUTION
Healthy eating and exercise is a solution.

Bulimia is a vicious cycle that will suck up your joy and your love for life, like a vacuum. Stealing away your sense of adventure, your peace, your friendships, your relationships and your health. The purging and binging will envelope your entire world till there is nothing left but vomit and desperation and hatred, hatred for your own self.

 

*Share the hell out of this ladies, the statistics are terrifying. Worse, the sheer amount of ‘pro’ sites popping up are the stuff of nightmares. We must stamp out any whiff of the word ‘trend’ associated with anything like this.*

Pass It On.
