Yesterday was World Suicide Prevention Day, and I did not remember to post. However, every day we should be taking the steps to help those who need it.
I've known far too many people who have lost to their battles with depression. So many lives, young and old, suddenly ended, with no visible warning. Millions of people world wide face a constant struggle of some days not even knowing how they will find the strength to get out of bed, I know I've been through it, and I'm sure many of you have as well. I want each and every one of you to know that you are loved, your life is important, and if you were to suddenly be gone tomorrow, you would leave a void that no other person on earth could fill. Please, if any of you are ever feeling sad, alone, or need a friend, I am here, and I will listen. I love you, stay strong.
And remember, the National Suicide Prevention Hotline in the United States is 1 (800) 273-8255 the staff is trained, they care, and they will listen to everyone, in every crisis, big or small.
