Self harm scars in summer


Recommended Posts

Anyone have experience with showing their scars? The weather is getting too hot to wear long sleeves all the time but I'm terrified of people seeing my scars.

I haven't been out the house in short sleeves in almost 2 years, and no one has ever seen my scars- not even parents or friends.


Tips on how to start showing my scars without being completely overwhelmed would be greatly appreciated

Hello @Finchy.boy


I hear you, it can be a really unsettling thing to come across. So you could get some thin cotton shirts or linen which are looser?


Or you could build yourself up to tell your family about them and try and test what it would be like to have them on show. They are nothing to be ashamed of and it shows your strength that you have developed safer coping strategies now.


What do you think?\
