Write Love On Your Arm Day

Self-injury, especially cutting is a common problem for people who are depressed, have eating disorders, borderline personality disorder, OCD, and other mental illnesses. Around 40% of bulimic and 30% of anorexics also cut along with their eating disorders. I was surprised to hear this even though I have cut through out my eating disorder.
That’s why I was thrilled to find the group “To Write Love on Her Arms,” a non-profit movement dedicated to presenting hope and finding help for people struggling with depression, addiction, self-injury and suicide. TWLOHA exists to encourage, inform, inspire and also to invest directly into treatment and recovery.
They believe that you were created to love and be loved. You were meant to live life in relationship with other people, to know and be known. You need to know that your story is important and that you’re part of a bigger story. You need to know that your life matters.
Self-injury, like alcohol and drug abuse and eating disorders, is addictive, and thus not something that is easy to simply ‘stop’. However, while all addictions are very difficult to overcome, help and treatment are out there and available, and recovery and freedom are possible.We believe this is true whether someone’s struggles may be self injury, depression, drugs and alcohol, body image issues, sexual addiction, or other areas of brokenness.
