  1. This is really marvellous to see what happens in the mind of a person.self harm is not easy as you sounded ,even a small paper cut hurts,not to talk about cuts so deep to leave a scar. Thanks

  2. Such an honest, hard hitting post Arjun. Kudos to you for taking the matter up the sleeve. I respect you for your honesty and sincerity towards increasing the awareness about Mental health and helping out those struggling with it.
    More power to you young man!!!

  3. U have this experience Arjun. I did this to me having lost my 8 months old baby to the toilet bowl. i can never forgive myself for this as it haunts me everyday. i though by writing this incident i will come out of the darkness, but it still sinks me deep inside. i know how it is when u self harm. that moment will be a relief but u cant get out of the pain for days. well written post. glad i read this.

    1. That’s so horrifying to hear Deepa. To actually go through it must have been even worse. Are you in a better shape now?

      1. I understand that Deepa, if you feel like you need to talk to someone you can ok?

  4. Kudos for writing about this and showing us the real picture which is so different from the perceived one. I remember reading one on similar lines by you earlier

    1. It was actually the same one with a few edits. I thought it would be a suitable inclusion to this month’s roster. Glad to see that you remembered 🙂

  5. Thank you for sharing such a personal experience. It was very insightful. You offered good advice about what to do instead of self-harm.

  6. If this was so difficult for me to read, because I kept trying to put myself in your shoes, I wonder how difficult it must have been for you to write it…But thank you for writing about this, I am sure it will help a lot of people going through a difficult time.

    1. I hope it helps someone. It wasn’t very easy to write because I had to make sure I had substance without glorifying the issue.

  7. This is a very informative post Arjun. I can very well understand this as I was once it that phase. Depression is such a terrible thing. I hope i can be this open in sharing my inner secrets 😛 Thanks for sharing this.
