Tears of Sadness
I have not felt like writing for the last several days. On Monday, my family, along with many others, suffered a terrible loss. My daughter’s best friend, all through Elementary school, took her own life. This young lady was quirky, funny, adventuresome and intelligent as hell. There were no signs, no bullying, and no cries for help. She just decided that she was feeling too much pressure in her young life. We don’t even know exactly what that pressure was. Because she was so smart, she was successful in her suicide attempt. Maybe if she wasn’t, we would have had another chance to help her.
I keep looking for something that gives me answers to all the questions in my head. There are no answers that will bring her back to us.
My heart aches for her parents. She came from a very loving, involved and dedicated family. I just don’t know how you continue to breathe in and out after suffering this kind of loss.
Please take a moment, hug your loved ones, especially your children, and remind them that NOTHING is ever bad enough to take the irreversible step of committing suicide. If you pray, please keep this family in your prayers for me today. They need all the support they can at this time.
