A survivor of suicide loss wrote me today and asked what everyone’s reaction was after I started talking openly about my husband’s suicide. I wrote that person that I do what’s right. It is never meant to hurt, but to help. For me, I could have sat quietly allowing people to secretly blame me or I could speak out for others. There are those who have been very angry and upset with what I have to say about my late husband and some choose not to believe it or even sometimes dismiss it. That is not going to stop me. For a long time, it tortured my mind when some would ignore or disappear after I would express such deep hurts, but in 2018 I’m continuing to focus on doing what’s right, just tuning out the static. I can only control me. The people you thought would be there for you sometimes aren’t, but sometimes there are really amazing people, selfless people, you least expect will come into your life..and then there are those who have been by your side the whole time..it took me a long time to see this, but I’m getting the feeling my glass is half full againribbon.png
