Ever since one of my best friends started cutting himself, a few days ago and unfortunately a picture ended up on his Facebook, I’ve been an advocate for suicide prevention.
I was before that incident, but I know now that if he died, and I couldn’t help him, that I wouldn’t know what to do with myself. So I say we REBLOG this picture for my friend. BECAUSE IM HERE IF YOURE HERE.
I’m showing him my Tumblr in a few days time. So please, I beg you, if you care enough to save him, (he’ll think I’m over-exaggerating.), please REBLOG.
Please don’t scroll past this. I’m not wanting followers out of this, but I just want to show my friend that there are a whole lot of people that care enough to save a life.

I’m so proud of the young person who did this. It’s a beautiful way of rallying support for a very important cause.
But I would just like to mention the difference between self mutilation and being suicidal. They are not one and the same concept.
Obviously I’m unaware of the full situation between this concerned tumblrer and their friend. He very well may be in that dark of a place that his actions were attempted suicide.
I think it’s simply important to note that self-harm is done not to end life in many cases, but to ensure it. It’s a coping mechanism that develops especially when a person is feeling numb to the outside world or to their own emotions. The pain is something tangible that can be dealt with, and felt without worry or confusion.
My previous experience with self-injurers have shown that the act of cutting is not intrinsically linked to attempting suicide. Many of the people I’ve spoken to, most of whom are dear friends to me, have said that the action is to keep them there. To bring them some relief. 
I completely support and advocate this message! I just also want those of you who are trying to help out your friends to know the difference between these two concepts. It helps when trying to talk about the situation if you show an effort of looking at multiple perspectives. They will thank you for it.
This is absolutely wonderful, and I do hope it has an impact on your friend, m’dear. He deserves to know that he’s special, and that even these scars will fade.
