As a suicide survivor, I get it.

And unless you’ve been at that point, you won’t. Period.

You’ll never understand how it feels to acknowledge how much pain your suicide will cause everyone that cares about you – and know the pain pushing you toward suicide is even bigger than all of that.

There’s nothing selfish about these decisions. I cringe when I read that. This is sad. Just sad.
I write about my experience in my book and I say my failed attempt was one of the best decisions I ever made…

I said it was one of my best decisions because it freed me from / killed who I was and who everyone else thought I should be and gave me the opportunity to be reborn in the truth that I my life is mine and mine alone to control.
