Today is an important day, not only because of the important announcement that is being made about a new discovery at Maropeng, that there are new people that we are recognizing as being part of our communal family tree.
It is international please don’t give up day. It’s international you really do matter day. I promise you matter.
Suicide is messy. Do you want to know how messy the aftermath is, read:
- You think that the world would be better off without you? It won’t. Here is an account from a woman who lost her husband to suicide.
- Eden Riley lost her brother to suicide, and she powerfully tells her story.
Everything you read on this blog exists because I did not kill myself, twice. I have come close. Oh, I have come close…and having done some time in the inquest court I would have probably successfully suicided, and I would have left behind a huge mess of feelings of doubt and hurt. Suicide is a selfish act, but it is not a rational act…In that space you are not able to think about what you are considering. In fact my life was saved by someone else blogging.
I know depression lies. Depression is a brilliant liar and incredibly good at blowing things out of proportion.
Please don’t give up. The world won’t be better off without you. We would rather have a broken, damaged, hurting you, than no version of you. If you can:
Love and staying alive,
