I was badly bullied at school. It got so bad I started to self-harm and I tried to take my own life.
I was feeling very low but then I discovered creativity.
First it was writing about my experiences, then drawing pictures. Recently I created some dramatic scenarios on the theme of bullying and how to overcome it.
At one point, when I thought I might start self-harming again I got my pencils and paper out and drew a picture of an arm and drew cuts on it instead.
I would be happy if at the end of the day, instead of people going down a dark path, they go for a more creative way to express how they feel instead of the negative ways of dealing with it. It could really help you because it really helped me.
