Such an important message from a fellow blogger. In this season of celebrating let’s be cognizant of those who may be struggling and need our help. Thank you for your words Laurel.

This is the time of year when the suicide rate goes up.  It’s the time of year when depression deepens and for some, becomes intolerable.  Pay attention.

When somebody has lost their lust for life and has withdrawn, there is a reason.  Depression is not a myth and the subsequent mental state is not “a choice.”

About geminilvr

I have been through many relationships in my life, most long term, and they have all shaped who I am in some way. I try to find humor through the pain and heartbreak and find the strength to do it all over again. Navigating the dating waters in my forties isn't easy but hey what in life is? My blog is sprinkled with past relationships, current status and thoughts on it all! I hope my experiences make you smile, laugh or cry along with me and relate to the complexity that is life, my life, perfectly imperfect.

    Love this! I had a friend who committed suicide. I still think of him all the time and wish I had noticed something before it happened. I personally would not turn to suicide but I am experiencing being “alone” right now for the first time in awhile. It’s a struggle but I’m learning as I go! Great post! #awareness

    Suicide is in most cases call for help, and usually the first attempt is unsuccessful
