To Write Love On Her Arms

By Jr @TheWrongGirl_
Last week, Tumblr announced that they are enacting a new policy to ban sites promoting self-harm and eating disorders. Could this put a dent in the online thinspo/pro-cutting culture? Doubtful. Though, there is a large number of traffic on Tumblr generated by these sites, it will more than likely just push the movement underground again. Some argue it could cause those in the self-harm community to become more isolated and secretive. But it's still a very brave move and message from a site that has more than 15 billion monthly page views.

Today was National Self Harm Awareness Day. I wrote "Love" on my arm.
Remember that you are not alone. You are loved. And you are beautiful.

Your life is your life
don’t let it be clubbed into dank submission.
Be on the watch.
There are ways out.
There is a light somewhere.
It may not be much light but
it beats the darkness.
Be on the watch.
The gods will offer you chances.
Know them.
Take them.
You can’t beat death but
you can beat death in life, sometimes.
And the more often you learn to do it,
the more light there will be.
Your life is your life.
Know it while you have it.
YOU ARE MARVELOUS.
The gods wait to delight
in you.
