At Least For Now…thankful for little things

My cousin tried to kill himself today. 

While I sat in the waiting room, with other family friends and relatives, all I could think about was what would cause a person to do this. Of course we’ll never get answers. And I’m sure that even when my cousin is ready to speak about it, we won’t get entire answers. I don’t think speculating is going to help anyone. It will just drive us out of our minds trying to figure out why.

I feel bad for him. And a part of me knows that there was nothing we could have done to stop it. And I would do anything in the world to have been able to.

    Suicide is planned months in advance, seen it from close by. It’s the WHY that’s eating the people who are left behind.

    Tace care!

    After a suicide or suicide attempt everyone anguishes over what they ‘could have done’ or should have seen. Best now to ask: what can be done to heal wounds and help out. I am glad he did not finish it; it is hoped he has had a turning point.

    So sorry. I had two friends commit suicide very close together one year. It was pretty awful. And I had no idea that either of them was that desperate or hurting. Sending love and good wishes.
