Speak out

Had a really awesome session with some of the youth last night about self harm.  Had some really honest conversation, some really good questions. One of the main reasons people self-harm is they don’t know what to do with what they are feeling, they have no outlet, they have no-one to talk to, or if they do, they don’t have the courage.

Then this morning I see this video making the rounds.  It is showing someone who has courage, someone who has taken the step to speak out, to say “I’m hurting and I need help”.  Seems relevant.  It’s a powerful video and my hope & prayer is that any young person in that situation who is hurting themselves because they are hurting can speak out, can find someone who they trust & love who can support them.  Just another reason I do what I do, so I can be that person if necessary.
