I saw this on my news feed this morning, and I had to share. I’ve cycled into mania myself recently, and this is a reminder to try and tone it down until it passes.
A lot of destructive tendencies come out while manic, so it is important have modules in place to slow us down to try and get to a place of objectivity….to be able to think of the consequences of actions.
Starting this Sunday, there is a very unique project called the lines project.
What goes on is if you are depressed, down, ore if you are struggling with self injury, you draw a line a day on your left hand up until that Friday. If you know someone struggling with these issues, you draw a line a day on your right hand.
This is a great way to show support to those many people out there who struggle with depression, and to show that with a little bit of effort, they can be shown positive ways to cope and one day won’t have to feel like that pain is the only relief to their struggle.
