Garbage Singer Shirley Manson Can 'Relate To Anyone' Who Self-Harms

Shirly Manson self-harming

If you've ever felt like a worthless piece of garbage and thought about hurting yourself as a result, please know you are NOT alone! Shirley Manson, the singer for the band Garbage, once viewed herself in the same dim light, but found the strength to rise above those negative feelings.

In a recent interview, the rocker revealed that her self-harming past allows her to relate to fans struggling with the same affliction. While talking to Instinct magazine, Shirley said:

"As a former self-harmer myself, I really do relate to anyone who is suffering so acutely from feelings of worthlessness that they attack themselves. That's born of a feeling of not being heard. It's such a gentle person usually who turns in on themselves, like they'd rather hurt themselves than hurt somebody else. I do feel a lot of empathy toward people who suffer like that, or what I like to call hypersensitivity. It's a form of intelligence in a funny way; you're reading things that most people are blind or deaf to."

It's such a shame that people EVER feel this way and our hearts go out to those individuals. However, as Shirley can attest to, there IS a way out of that dark place.

If U are "suffering so acutely from feelings of worthlessness," please don't hesitate to find help!
