Last night a really bad thing happened. A dear friend tried to take her own life. She failed, and I am so grateful. But many others don’t fail.
So today I want to share something so incredibly important. Suicide hot lines. Suicide hot lines aren’t only for people dealing with suicide, did you know that? You can call day or night just to talk about whatever may be bothering you. Anger, depression, anxiety, abuse, self harm, suicidal thoughts, grief, and so much more. Many also have an online chat feature or text number if you feel like you can’t say it out loud.
Please, if you need help, or know someone that does, reach out. Talk. Be there. Pay attention. Get involved. Even if you're not hurting, educate yourself. Remind yourselves and your friends that they are loved, so much.
Below are links to a list of international suicide hot lines, American Hot lines, and Canadian Hot lines. Pass it on like wildfire, help stop the epidemic, stop the fear.
Thank you for being here. You are wanted.
Leave a message of encouragement below, we all need one sometimes.
