I read a quote by someone named JM Storm that says
“Before you pass judgement on one who is self-destructing, it is important to remember they usually aren’t trying to destroy themselves. They’re trying to destroy something that doesn’t belong.”
Now this isn’t always true. Sometimes people self-destruct for very selfish reasons like attention. I have known quite a few people who only do things like cutting when they feel no one is paying any attention to them. It is like they thrive on drama.
I am a drama free person. I hate drama. I distance myself from as much drama as possible. But unfortunately everyone seems to call me when they’re stuck in drama like I am some sort of savior. I am not Emma Swann
But there are those silent self-destruct types who only tear themselves apart where no one can see. If you don’t look hard enough, you will probably miss it.
Now I’ve said this before, but you should never pass judgement. You never know what someone is going thru or has been thru. I have been judged so many times for so many things. I think it is everything that I have been thru that allows me to sympathize with others so well.
