Absolutely!! We DO have to get comfortable with the uncomfortable topic of suicide.
Don’t wait until your child or your loved one or your best friend is gone and you’re left asking yourself “Why didn’t I see the signs? I had no idea the person was hurting so bad. I wish I had known. I wish I had talked to them more. I wish I had listened to them when they were reaching out”. “ They seemed so happy￼.”
Don’t wait to get involved until it hits your family or someone you know.
Right now someone you know is going through hell and they’re not talking about it because nobody wants to talk about it. We need to talk about it so the person can know that there are other options because when people get to the point where they want to take their own life they feel like that is the only option.
If you’ve never been down that road then you can’t understand how they feel and that’s OK. We are not asking you to tell them what you think because you’re thinking rationally because everything’s OK in your life. We’re asking you to have compassion because not everybody thinks their life is worth living for many, many, many reasons and some of them valid.
Kevin Hall, president of the Grant Halliburton Foundation: “We have to get comfortable with this uncomfortable topic because right now it’s winning,”.
I Care! Let’s Talk! 💕😊
