Losing someone to suicide

Talking about mental health can be hard. The hardest thing I have found to talk about is suicide. Some one I knew took their life this week and I don’t know where to begin putting my thoughts together. I wish he had known there was help out there. I wish he had known that his life was worth living and that he mattered. I wish he had the chance to see all the people who cared about him. Depression can be deadly if we don’t ask for help. We should all have someone we can go to and openly talk about how we are feeling. There is this saying that suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem. There is so much help out there, so if you are feeling like you can’t do it anymore I encourage you to reach out and keep fighting! You are so much stronger then you know, and if I can do it, so can you. Because the truth is suicide does not end the chances of life getting worse, it eliminates the possibility of it ever getting better.

So please try to never ever forget that you matter because you do.

    I want to say that I completely understand what you are going through. I have lost several friends to suicide and I know what the aftermath feels like. Many questions arise and we are always quick to ask ourselves what we could have done differently. I have nothing but empathy towards you, and can admit I continue to ask myself those same questions to this day. You are right in saying though, that there is help out there for everyone and anyone, and that there is hope, for ANY circumstance.

He hung himself because of his aids real sad story he was a great friend and a lot of people loved him. I wish I could of stop him or say something for he won’t feel like commuting suicide.
