DAY 15 - I am a suicide attempt survivor.


Our deepest wounds surround our greatest gifts.
― Ken Page

When I first published What I Want To Offer in 2018, I was nervous about its response and uncomfortable with the vulnerability of the writing.

Since then, it has become the most popular post on this blog. This personal essay about my own suicide attempts has been particularly helpful to those who have lost someone to suicide and are struggling with questions like 'How could they do this to me?' and 'Why wasn't my love for them enough?'

Because of this, I have gone from feeling uncomfortable with the essay to being honored that I can help loss survivors in this way. So, I am sharing it with you again, today. Click here or on the image above to see the essay.
