“ I think that if I can find hope, anyone can”
“No one in my life knows how often I think about dying. I’ve struggled silently for years with shame, the consequences of a list of traumas and violence, and the inability to talk about things that happened to me. Most people would never suspect.
I woke up one day, in the worst of it, and I realized I didn’t know what it felt like to feel good. That was my moment where I found hope. I realized I wanted to feel better. I hadn’t had a hopeful thought in a long time. I didn’t know what it even looked like, but I knew I wanted to get better. So, I got involved in feeling better. I didn’t know if it would work.
I think about dying less. When I think of it now, I don’t panic. I know what it is. Its’ my past. And when I think about dying, I try a different way to get better. I feel a little better each day”
