Healing involves pain. There are times when this feels like the greatest injustice. But survivors of suicide loss must find a way to live with their pain. Through their pain. Around their pain. We gain nothing by pushing it away, pushing it down, or denying it.

Surround yourself with support. Accept the help of others, find support groups, reach out to those who love you and learn to immerse yourself in self-care.

Feel it all, including what hurts. In this way, you will find yourself bearing even the most unbearable of pain. Do not give up. Do reach out. Do be gentle with yourself.

Remember, we do recover.
