Stepping Back From Suicide’s Edge



The attached blog post is from BreakingSarah. I can relate so well to her touching and powerful words.  I’m still early in this estrangement journey, but as Sarah mentions in her post, I’ve started making choices the past couple of weeks to build up me.

For example, I’ve gotten myself a membership to the local gym so I’m working out several times a week now. I’m eating a healthier diet. I’m taking time to play with some hobbies I’d let slide. I’m even going to get a new haircut.

I hope you find an answer to your own tiredness other than suicide. It can be a daily battle. I know firsthand. (((hugs)))
