Suicide In My Family

Please pray for my family. Yesterday, my uncle decided to end his life. There just aren't any words to describe things right now. I don't know what to think or how to feel. My cousin is the one who found him in the garage where he had shot himself in the face. She's only fourteen. My aunt is having to deal with all of the tough decisions right now. I can't write any more right now. Maybe I'll write some more later on today. This is just so hard to bear.

Dearest Tulip,
I too have lost a close and loved family member to suicide. I was too 14 when I found my aunt my mother's younger sister after she had succumbed to an overdose of pills.

The only thing to do is be.

Try to connect to your higher self, ask for help, take warm baths, cry.

Soon, the sun will come out and clarity with it. Be patient and reach for every beloved outreached hand.

My best to yu and may blessing be upon you and your family in this difficult time.
