This statement so clearly defines the stigma attached to those of us who have attempted suicide and survived. So often, my name comes up, and the response is, "the one that was so selfish and tried to kill herself-her poor family". I am not a statistic. I am an individual who sustained horrific abuse.

ITS NOT THE HURT, SADNESS OR WHATEVER NEGATIVE FEELING YOU'RE FEELING THAT MATTERS ITS YOUR STRENGTH TO OVERCOME AND FIGHT THAT FEELING THAT SHOWS YOU YOUR INNER STRENGTH. . .& THAT IS A POWERFUL THING♥♥♥
