Today i want to take time to talk about something by merely showing this image, now the message it says is "Everyday Is A Struggle Self - Self Harm Awareness."
But the symbolizations i made in this image are by themselves more powerful. Let's go over them, shall we?
Starting off, the background image i drew is supposed to reflect the heart, showing it is a topic close to myself personally.
Second, we have the words “Awareness”, “Harm” and “Self”, these are put on drug candies that even if they make you feel good first will leave you wanting more, hence there are two shadows on them, shadowing the fact you are using it for a reason, and that you know how bad they are for you as you become addicted. And the shadows on the word “Awareness” are also all over the place, giving the false awareness many people have of it's power over those who do it, thinking they can easily quit.
Next we have the razor, made of glass with the word “Struggle”, this is because even Cutting yourself may become an addiction, the glass symbolizes that after time there will still be visible marks left, even if the pain may have faded and the blood washed away.
Fourth we have the subjects “A” and “Is”, these words are made of Speed and Cocaine, these ones I've come in contact with myself and i know how eratic these can make you become, that is why the subject “Is” is left an uncut mess because you lose control if you take too much.
If you look at the word “Everyday”, you can realize that this is a never ending cycle, you get hurt, you self harm or take drugs, you get healed, it becomes a never ending cycle, how many of you did not notice the blood until NOW on the word Everyday?
Self Harm is a subject not discussed enough in schools, and is seen as an easy way of bullying someone, just know that if you bully someone who self harms, you become a lasting scar on that persons history, leaving them with the consequences, or maybe, you are the water droplet that causes them to end their existence, as if whisked away.
In belows video i drew the image to draw awareness to the issue.
