I recorded the following video after feeling compelled to discuss this important topic. News of three recent stories of someone taking their own life have graced my local and national community news, so it’s on my mind.
This is a raw video so there are some thoughts that are a little “incomplete”. One of them being my statement that there are missed opportunities when one exits their life early. I would like to follow up to curb any confusion with the notion that while those opportunities one would’ve been able to experience within the body, there are also a plethora of understanding that comes from the choice and act itself. So in truth, no learning is truly “lost”.
Death is merely an act of walking through a doorway-going from one room and into another. All of us will take this journey, and there are as many ways to transition as there are types of individuals in the world. The whole point of this video is not about blame, as every individual is ultimately responsible for their words, thoughts, and actions, but is intended to be used as a tool for inner reflection on how we as the observers and survivors can contribute something more helpful to the topic rather than so.much.negative.judgement.
Feel free to share if you find this commentary helpful and healing as that is it’s sole intention.
