#IUNDERSTAND

If you’re struggling with depression and suicidal thoughts, there’s a great chance that no one knows because you haven’t told anyone. You’re afraid to speak up because you fear that you will be judged or shamed, or that no one will understand how you feel.  But I understand how you feel. Trust me. I do.  Let’s talk.      #IUNDERSTAND

Sometimes, people don’t speak up about their depression or suicidal thoughts because they don’t know who they can safely talk to without fear of being judged, shamed or mocked. Sometimes they’re afraid to speak up because they don’t want to scare anyone or because they don’t want to be a burden. But oftentimes, they don’t speak up because they’re not sure who they can talk to. They want to talk to someone who has been there and back and has lived to tell the tale. They want to talk to someone who UNDERSTANDS.

If you would like to join me in the fight to prevent the suicide of our friends and loved ones who are silently struggling alone, please share this post to let them know that you care and that they can come to you because you UNDERSTAND.
