We encountered this sight in a walk along the beach last week
There are some circumstances in which you think removing defences is a helpful step, this is not one of them.
We all have defence mechanisms that operate at particular times, sometimes they are vital for our mental or spiritual health, at other times they may be unhelpful to our flourishing for various reasons.
So today I am thinking about my defences, healthy and unhealthy and reflecting on whether I need to take action to rebuild or dismantle.
This householder definitely needs to rebuild unless they want to see more of their garden on the shore.
Most of my work is ultimately about flourishing and wellbeing from my 1-1 mentoring or spiritual accompanying to my spiritual health programmes. Check out http://www.sallynash.co.uk if you are interested in how I might help or support you.
