What Can Make a Person Push Themselves to Take Their Own Life?
I’m saddened as I write this blog. I was confronted for the first time in my life, with losing someone I cared about to suicide. As I sit and run through my mind, over and over again, if there was a sign that I missed along the line?
How do we know if someone is at that point in their life when they would hurt themselves?
When something like this happens you hear people say, “it doesn’t surprise me.” I am dumbfounded that, if these people thought something like this could happen, why did they not reach out?
I always thought my friend was so strong. In reality I see that, though she was tough on the outside, inside she was unsure and crying out for help.
I am very sad that I didn’t pay more attention to what everyone else seems to think they saw.I wil miss my friend and have an empty spot in my heart for her and pray for her family.
When we think someone is in trouble are we brave enough to take a stand and get involved?
Are there signs that are so common that we tend to overlook them as just being depressed or sad?
