Nothing can or will prepare you for the loss of someone around you to suicide.
I know because 5 years ago I lost my dad, I was overseas & got a call to say he was gone. Just like that.. no more ‘just one last hug’ or ‘just one more I love you’. He was hurting, he had enough of what some people around him were continually putting him through, I know this because he told me. But I never thought he was capable of taking his own life, not only because he was strong, but still to this day I am surprised because he was such a fun, masculine, protective & loving man but also a very sensitive & caring person.
But no matter how strong you think someone is, unfortunately you do not know the full extent of what they are going through. Especially a parent who is trying to protect you.
I myself have gone through some of the toughest days I believe I will ever face since losing my dad. He was my absolute world. But I didn’t want to ever feel like taking my own life was ever an option to end what I was going through. So I got help from the people around me & a professional counselor.
It’s a common misconception that if you speak to a counselor you are weak or have a problem. But talking to someone who is professionally equipped to help you deal with your emotions & situations is not only tremendously important but also the best thing you can do for your mental well-being & there are many places that offer these services, a lot of them are even for free.
I KNOW there are so many people suffering out there especially at this time with everything that is going on in the world but we have so many resources around us we just have to utilize them. If you or someone you know is doing it tough - please speak to someone, don't retreat to silence and being alone (as much as it may feel comfortable), you have the strength to change your situation, day by day. I’ve said this before, change does not and generally can't happen over night, it's a journey, but a journey worth having because you are just as loved and as important as anyone on this planet. ❤️ I love & miss you tremendously. We’ll be shmokin the Cohibas & listening to the Bob Marley with ya daddy bear❤️
