Putting a stop to self-mutilation

From the April 2, 2012 issue of the Christian Science Sentinel


A study of teenagers in the Lancet magazine (November 2011), reminded me of a time when I was healed of some very unhelpful thoughts about myself. The article reported that a significant number of teenagers were mutilating themselves in the United Kingdom: 10 percent in the case of girls and 6 percent of boys.
