How do you confide the worst things to some people? How do you tell people that you self harm? Do you use your words or do you simply lift up your shirt or roll up a trouser leg and let them process the cuts and come to the right conclusion once they’ve discarded all the sane possibilities? How will they ever be able to look at you and interact with you again?
And how do you tell someone you think of suicide and long for death (or more accurately, long to not be alive because the two are not quite the same)? How do you do it without seeming like an attention seeker? How do you get someone to take you seriously and is it possible to do that without freaking them out?
And can you do either of these things without losing everyone?
