Life is all about taking personal responsibility. Of course, that’s super much easier said than done. You don’t want anyone else to dictate how you feel about yourself, but, it’s kinda impossible to not care what someone you care about thinks about you.
Some people just talk it out. Others cut their arms and post the photos to prove it on Facebook.
Regardless of whichever you are, probably a good idea to 1. get out of said relationship since.. once you’ve reached the cutting stage it probably won’t get much better and 2. holy hell get some help. Not just the help you’re going to get because you’re court ordered, but, the help you need…
A 22-year-old Bethlehem woman is in Northampton County Prison following an altercation with a man with whom she was in a relationship that caused her to cut her own arm with a knife, court documents say.
Amanda Beveridge, of the 3600 block of Miller Street, is charged with simple assault and harassment. She was arraigned today before District Judge Daniel Corpora and sent to prison in lieu of $5,000 bail.
According to court documents:
When Lower Saucon Township police arrived at a home in the 3800 block of Beeline Drive on Sept. 9, they found Beveridge lying on the ground with a large cut to her left forearm.
As police assisted Beveridge to an ambulance to be taken to St. Luke’s University Hospital in Fountain Hill, they detected the odor of alcohol.
A man Beveridge was in a relationship with told police she had taken a knife to her own forearm following a dispute. The argument resulted in punching and scratching to the man’s face and he had visible injuries, police said.
Police said Beveridge also went to the hospital to receive a psychological evaluation. She was ordered by the judge to undergo pretrial supervision, have no contact with the victim and receive drug and alcohol testing. SOURCE: The Express-Times
Have you ever noticed that the people who post the most inspiration quote type things on their Facebook walls are also the ones who are the most unhappy? Or, at least seem to be.
Also, don’t drink and play with knives. Never ends well. Ever. Not even when carving pumpkins.
