Great advice :) This is why I try to smile every day! You don't need a reason; if you think about, you probably have a million reasons anyway. Most days, I try to smile just to smile :) Not that it's always easy... but it's worth it when you can!
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. Take one step in the shoes that I wore as a child, feel my pain for just 1 minute. Think twice before you judge me.
