Red Light Skills

ASK FOR HELP when you need it, which is when you are doing something or have a circumstance that exceeds your knowledge or your emotional bandwidth, or if you are in crisis.

A CRISIS involves danger of harm (concern a person is going to harm themselves or someone else) and/or experiencing something that you simply do not know how to handle.
