I’m not scared either, to admit that I have attempted suicide, that I spent years dealing with depression and destructive mental health issues. Because there are too many people dying.
No. I’m not scared to talk about suicide — I’m scared to stay silent. Silence is what fuels my depression. Silence turns thoughts into obsessions and obsessions can lead to actions. Silence is the deadliest weapon of all. Silence kills. I know my silence would kill me, and I don’t want to die.
I talk about it so others who are scared to talk about it know they are not alone. We are never alone, despite how lonely we feel.
