Self Harm- The Butterfly Project!!
« on: January 08, 2013, 03:51:45 PM »
Hey girls I'm just here to inform any girls who self harm about the butterfly project!! It's quite simple here are the rules:
1. When you feel like you want to cut,take a marker or pen and draw a butterfly wherever the self harm occurs
2. Name the butterfly after a loved one, or someone who really wants you to get better
3. NO scrubbing the butterfly off it must fade by itself
4. If you cut before the butterfly is gone it dies, if you don't cut it lives
5. If you have more than one butterfly cutting kills them all
 6. Another person may draw them on you. These butterfly's are extra special so take good care of them
7. Even if you don't cut feel free to draw a butterfly anyways to show your support if you do this name it after someone who you know is suffering from this right now!!

Well that's it, If you need this then please go to the website there are lots of stories and pictures of what people are going through and this site could help you!!

Just wanted to jump in and say that while this is definitely a great resource for some, if you self harm and this is triggering or doesn't work for you that's okay too. Everyone harms for different reasons and because of different things, and the guilt this method can build up for some people isn't healthy. Just remember it's okay for this to not work for you, that you're not bad or wrong for that, and that there is no right or wrong way to recover.

Thankyou for telling everyone this because it is every good advice
Especially to all the girls that have self-harmed or most possibly self-harm sooner or later
Ps if anyone has the urge that self-harm talk to me because I have been going through the pain

I've been cutting for a while and it really isn't the right thing to do. This project is something I'm going to try to take part of. I hope it works :)

Here is a poem I found on the site:
RED RAIN
It's times like these
I cut too deep
When the price of sanity
becomes to steep.
A drop of blood
For a minute free of pain
I'll use my silver umbrella
So bring down the rain
No one understands
No one knows what I'm going through
This is the only way.
Why can't you get what I'm telling you.
If only you could see
The only way I say stand
Is to take up my blade
And bring down the red rain.

Well that's it I hope you like it :)
