The purpose of Borrowed Time is to support each other in the work of opening to environmental breakdown. This work can be difficult and demanding, stirring very deep feelings and threatening the foundations of our beliefs and securities. That is why we need mutual support and encouragement.
We also need to be aware that in certain circumstances our fears and anxieties can become overwhelming. To guard against that it is important to recognise when we need to take a break, to step back for a while and to enjoy what we find restorative, or perhaps seek professional therapeutic help. If we are honest with ourselves in this way then it will help to grow our resilience, so that when we are ready we can re-engage with the work with positive energy and with hope, for the benefit of others.
Please note that Borrowed Time does not claim to offer professional help, nor to be in any way a substitute for it. Links to other sources of support and help may be found here:
