Reblog – letter to someone suicidal from a therapist #168

My friend sent me this letter that Stacey wrote. It really touched me.

It reminded me of the letter I wished I could have given to the girl, before she killed herself. I wish I could have told you this before you killed yourself What I wish I could tell anyone before they take the final act. Final because there is no other choice or option.

To read the entire letter, check it out here 

Suicide lies.

Suicide might even tell you that you are a bad person

Defective, undeserving of life

Or love, or hope, or compassion.

They are a symptom, a sign, a cry from inside.

Something inside you needs healing.

Healing, not killing.

Suicide plays tricks with truth,

Telling only the truths that make you want to die

Hiding the truths that make you want to live.

One day you will thank you, too.

For telling.

For surviving.

So long as there’s life, there’s hope.

Love, light and glitter

    1. I’d love to believe she does.
      I’d also love to make a collection of all letters to someone suicidal.
      Have a happy day!

  1. You’ll hold onto these words in case someone else needs to hear them. Don’t beat yourself up over this poor young woman – I know you wish you could have said or delivered the message to her. I don’t like to see it haunt you Eliza. Unfortunately, there will be other times and you will come to their rescue in time. I’m sending your message of joy back to you for the weekend, and always.

    So long as there’s life, there’s hope.

    Love, light and glitter

    1. :) You’re right, it does haunt me. Less so than it did. It just brings up so so so much…. all that I think about and don’t know how to handle. All that I want to do and can’t. All there should be and isn’t. All I’m not. Slowly making peace with some of it, but, yeah.
      Love, light and glitter :)

      1. Give yourself time – go slowly and I know it does haunt you. Try and let it go Eliza – I know I am not in your shoes, but I do know that you will help someone else by being their “rock” and you’ll tell them that you are doing it not only for them, but yourself and a girl that you could not help. Love, light and glitter. (((((hugs))))

        1. :) Thanks!!!!
          You make me smile, y’know
          Hope today is a warmer day (did I already say that??)
          Sending dolphins and glitter your way…

I'd love to hear your thoughts
