The support group gives me energy & resilience.
In the physical absence of my only child for 6 Christmases, I just think how grateful I am today that I stood amidst people who have cheered me up in so many ways. Suicide bereavement leaves you questioning with so many WHYS. Self-pity and blaming are all the distorted thinking that survivors of suicide perpetuate in their minds, which can lead to depression. But through the support of others, I felt uplifted to the higher ground of positive thinking. There are still lots of people more unfortunate than I am who need love, kindness and compassion.
The support group gives me so much energy and the resilience I need to put me back on my own two feet. It’s not easy but it gives me someone to lean on and walk in this difficult journey.
