In the past five years, I have lost three beautiful friends to suicide. Three people who brought joy and laughter and silliness and light to everyone they touched...and yet, clinical depression kept them from being able to see or feel that light themselves. Today, on World Suicide Prevention Day, I want to honor their lives by simply asking you to stay. I know it might feel like things will always be dark and sad, but I promise they won’t. I’ve been in those dark and sad places myself and I found my way back to the light and you can, too. If you’re struggling...please tell SOMEONE. Anyone. It sounds cliche but life really, genuinely, DOES get better. I am living proof of that. And if you’re not struggling, please make an effort to reach out to a friend or family member you haven’t heard from in awhile. When people go silent, it’s often not that they’re ignoring you but that they are isolating and hiding out from the world and your text or phone call or visit could literally be a lifeline for them. Let’s all take better care of each other, okay? No one else can leave. 💜 (Also featured here is an excerpt from @mattzhaig’s beautiful book, Reasons to Stay Alive. There are so many gloriously magical reasons to stay alive. Borrow these for those moments when you have trouble seeing that.) • • • • #mandyhale #thesinglewoman #suicide #suicideprevention #worldsuicidepreventionday #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #depression #depressionhelp #itgetsbetter #endthestigma #reasonstostayalive #matthaig #tuesday #tuesdaymotivation #tuesdaythoughts #lifeline #lifeisbeautiful #stay #struggling
