Yes, You will maybe notice I am posting less often this year. I’m hard at work on my 2nd book on suicide prevention. Are we all talking about suicide that much more? It seems like I hear of a sucide at least every week lately. The world has become an uglier place and the less connected we are, the meaner we can be to one another. The meaner life feels, the harder it is to maintain the struggle when we’re in pain. This is a book I promised myself to write and finish this year. I will.
That’s why it’s always best to discuss anything delicate in person – not by text, and not over the phone. We are much kinder to one another when face to face.
So While I’m off writing my second personal project, here are some resources for you.
Kindspring.org You can sign up for their newsletter and share your random acts of kindness. the readers will gift you with karma bucks you can then send on to others. A lovely site where kind people connect and you can feel inspired again by fellow humanoids.

DBTselfhelp.com A site set up by a real woman who graduated and continues to use DBT skills training to self calm and deal with borderline personality disorder. Also search under DBT on Facebook.
