Summer fun. Twelve hands form a circle over the sand. Useful to represent diversity, human nature, teamwork etc. There are male and female hands, different skin colours and ages. Ones have rings and one has a band aid.

Getting through the urge

This sounds kinda silly but a new technique that I seem to have adopted when trying to fight the urge to self-harm, is to just consciously tell my brain how silly and un-safe it is. I’m so using it now, that it’s almost like 2nd nature to automatically just think in my brain that that is what I’m going to do…but if I take a just a second to slow down and just tell myself that it’s un-safe, then it gives me time to calm myself and tell myself that it will be ok…that I will be ok… and that I can get through the urge.
