September is Suicide Prevention Awareness Month
From experience, I can say that from the 5 or more times that I had attempted to commit suicide when I was younger, my family only knew of 1. ONE. I later confessed to my mom the other times I had tried but it now blows my mind to think that I never really reached out to people and a failed attempt just meant I’d carry on the day as if nothing had happened. Many people hide their pain and it isn’t until it is too late that we realize they were hurting in the first place.
That being said, take today to tell someone you love them. To smile. To spend time with someone you haven’t seen in a very long time. You truly never know what they can be going through.
