Tonight’s Challenge!

Tonight’s Challenge!

Reach Out

We’ve all made friends and acquaintances here. Someone who experiences the same mental conditions you do. Depression. Anxiety. PTSD. Cutting. Suicidal thoughts.

When is the last time you’ve heard from them? Has it been a while? Have they been off the grid?

I challenge you to reach out to them before the day is over and check on them. Send them a friendly note saying you haven’t heard from them and were wondering how they’ve been. Let them know they are special and if comfortable, that you care for them.

I emailed a fellow blogger because I haven’t heard from her in a few days and I was concerned. No posts on her blog. No Likes. No comments. Just blank space. I attributed it to her being busy with her kids, but she’s not like that. She’s a warrior. Like us all. I missed her wise posts of positivity so I just wanted to check.

She responded back. I was happy to hear from her and know that she was ok.

Who do you need to reach out to TONIGHT?

Would you comment back to let us see how many people’s lives are being touched by your acts of kindness?

The Power of One…

The Power of One…

NOTE: This video shows images of suicide. Please do not watch if this is a trigger. This post deals with my personal experience with suicide. Please do not read it if this is a trigger.

On September 14th, 2014 I hanged myself from a doorknob. Specter  had crept out of the dark corner of my life, and slashed. This was the song I placed on repeat and turned up as loud as I could while I was slipping away.

Once I was released from the psychiatric unit I watched the video. I saw that there was an inspiring message. If you are able to watch the video in its entirety you will see the same. And that hopeful message is the power of one person’s selfless act of noticing you. Noticing US. My friends, every human being needs to be noticed. Just the act of softly saying to someone, “I saw you sitting here and felt an urge to ask you how you were doing” could potentially give that person the glimmer of hope they may need at that very time. That little two second statement could ensure the rest of their life. Read the rest of this entry »
