When a person is in need of guidance, you often hear their loved ones say: “I wish I knew how to help them”. But sometimes it’s just knowing that someone’s there for them, that can be all the help they need.
For the past month, I have been attending a group with four other mothers, to discuss our children’s behavioural issues. I have gained so much more from the group than I thought I would. Just knowing that there are other people going through the same situation, has made me feel not so alone.
Suicide is such a prevalent issue in today’s society; regardless of age, gender and culture. And I think it is incredibly sad to think that there are people out there who feel they are alone in their feelings.
That is why I created this website in the first place. I have spent a lot of my life helping people through their problems, even saving a friend from suicide. I know from my own personal experience that life can get tough, but knowing that someone is there can make all the difference.
So if you have a loved one who needs some help, just be there for them. Listen to them speak about what’s on their mind, be their shoulder to cry on. You don’t always need to know the right thing to say or the right thing to do, because the best thing you can ever give someone is your LOVE.
And to all those people who are not in a good place at the moment, please remember… you are NEVER alone. I can promise you that someone out there knows how you feel, someone out there cares about you, someone out there absolutely loves you. Just stay strong and please always remember… you are never alone.
