***** TRIGGER WARNING *****
***** ***** SUICIDE ***** ******
R.I.P. @brodyismefriend 🙏
Another suicide. 48 yrs old. Makes my heart break more every time I hear of another hurting so badly they feel #suicide
is the only way out. Unfortunately, like far too many others, I've been there.
I understand what it's like to:
in a room of thousands
🔵Smile when your insides are flooded w/tears
🔵Sit w/a knife in your hand, staring at your phone, willing yourself to reach out, but feel nobody would give a rat's ass anyways
🔵Drink so much you #pray
the mix of liquor & pills will help you sleep....and never wake up
I know what it feels like to:
& be ignored
🔴Wish to reach out again, but the #pain
of being blown off could literally catapult you over that edge
🔴Be told you're a liar, to get over it, there's nothing wrong with you, you're fine, just sleep it off
🔴Feel so incredibly #worthless
you think the light at the end of the tunnel could never in a million years be meant for you
The pain w/in your head & heart can literally begin to #suffocate
you. And when someone can't breathe, how can they reach out for help? By their #actions, #silence, #changes
in mood, dress, eating habits, social activities, etc. The problem is many aren't paying attention to the #signs &/or let #fear
keep them at arms length.
WE as a society need to look out for one another!! When someone is at the point of feeling #death
is absolutely the only possible answer to end their pain, they're past the point of reaching out. It's our responsibility to #payattention,
to REACH OUT FIRST!! One person is all it takes!!
Just ONE person to listen without judgement, to hold you like they're never going to let you go, to make you feel #wanted
To make you feel like #youmatter!
It only takes ONE! If we all would be that "plus one" for another, think of how many lives could be forever altered for the better!
You don't have to single handedly #change
the world, but #together
we CAN change the world one single person at a time....❤
