Hold Your Fire (To Those Who Would Harm Themselves)
This is beautiful post by John Pavlovitz. I have re-blogged for Friday Arts Day because of the style of Poetry and Prose.
Self harming is a huge issue, a silent issue, one hidden and full of shame. I love that John's message is for us to stand and fight alongside those who are suffering. You are not alone. Cease fire, lay down your guns, reinforcements are on the way. Don't suffer in silence.
If you need help in this area or are journeying with someone who is. Help is available. Please don't walk this alone.
