I'd just smile and say I'm fine... I can't let my family know.

Same, I need to hide my scars from my family. I rip apart the top of my left hand with paperclips, knives and anything else sharp I can get. The worest is that 90% of my problems are in my head, I'm my own worest nightmare, I'm the one always putting myself. I hate myself, I'm trapped in my own body.

I bruise and scratch because the scars are minimal but the pain can really hurt.

Wow, really that's a great job on foreshortening. Also the lighting is great. That worried expression on his face really fits your theme. Overall this is a simply beautiful piece that strongly backs up the idea you were putting on it.

That picture looks great. I love it how he seems to reach out of the picture and his eyes are gorgeous. I don't really get the blue butterflies, though. However, I think that you have mentioned an important topic many people keep silent about.

Butterflies are symbolic of many things, freedom, the soul, change, frailness, rebirth. Also if you have ever heard of the non-profit organisation 'beyond blue', who also have set out to help those suffering from depression, their logo is a butterfly.
I did not mention beyond blue because I really wanted to aim this at RUOK, but that is the main underlying symbolic meaning of the butterflies (:

And thank you ^^

Great picture. I genuinely expresses emotion. Wish I knew about "R U OK" day though.
