When people think of self harming, they mostly think about physical acts of self harming, like cutting.
Physical self harm is a very real form of self harm and is an obvious form as it is visible.
But, I have come to know that emotional self harm is even more of a problem and people often don’t even realise they are self harming emotionally as it a subconscious trauma induced behaviour, and often mental health professionals know little about this too.
So, I intend adding a page to my website, explaining this and the many different ways emotional self harming can occur.
It takes a lot of self honesty and self insight to acknowledge emotional self harming, but it is needed.
