It really does hit home for me.
In my circle of family and friends, cutting and suicide or suicidal thoughts are not at all that uncommon.
For our youth, who too many now are pumped up on psychotic drugs, prescribed to them by doctors. Figuring out who you are can be the most tumultuous time in a teens life. And often the most depressing.
I remember the worst years of my life taking place in my early teens. That is why I am working on a letter to the 13-year-old me. The post is taking longer than I thought it would to write. The words are not coming as easily as I would like them to.
Not because I don’t know what to say, but because apparently trying to remember is very difficult. Maybe forgetting the pain, is how I overcame it. I don’t yet. I guess I am still figuring that one out for myself. And I guess you’ll find out when the post comes out.
For our soldiers in the military, Suicide is the most common cause of death.
The drone strikes, the idea that if the people aren’t fighting those attacking us, they are just as bad as those attacking us . . . it all has to take its toll on the minds of the soldiers.
They are not weak for seeking help, and neither is anyone else.
If you need help, seek it.
Seeking help is honorable.
Seeking help is necessary.
