On this self injury awareness day, I ponder the hypocrisy of Tumblr. How some of the same blogs that urge people not to harm themselves are also the same blogs that won’t tag triggering posts because “everyone should see this.”
It makes the former posts so insincere when you realizes that some of the same people won’t properly warn for triggers, triggers that can lead to sessions of self-harm. How do you know they really care about your personal mental healthy if they disregard it so blatantly?
It took me a while to realize I would be happier and healthier not following the blogs who can’t tag triggery posts no matter how good they are at art or how many interests we share. Because if they have no regard for me as a person, then why watch them? And yes, I know I know “you can’t tag things on mobile,” and that’s fine. I still don’t have to follow those blogs.
