What I wish you knew about my struggles

This is very moving to me, I had to share it. Thank you for this touching , powerful, inspiring.

The Narcissist's Daughter

A commonly expressed opinion is that those who talk about mental health problems are doing so for pity or attention. It is assumed that only these things could be a solid enough reason for speaking about something so taboo and uncomfortable.

Please let me speak for myself, and possibly on behalf of many others, so that I can attempt to clear up this foolish and cruel misconception.

I do not want your pity. I do not long for your attention. What I hope for is empathy, I dare to dream that you will stop and try to place yourself in my shoes. I wish for understanding, kindness, and tolerance – I crave your acceptance and support, your friendship.

Please do not judge me when you notice the scars that colour my wrists. I know they are ugly but they are a part of me now, I can not change them.
