[SHARING MY STORY]•
“People who believe that Change is possible, are the ones who make it Happen.”🖤
Sharing my story is never easy. I feel so sick before every talk I’ve been asked to do. But I’ve never turned an opportunity down because I believe in our movement so much. I’ve accepted that even though my brother chose to leave us behind... he also left us with a purpose. That purpose is to Talk Up Mental Health Awareness whenever I can. He is the reason for TU;MA and he is the reason I choose to be on this journey.
I know I can’t save everyone even though I’d want to. But I do know I can try. I don’t do this for recognition, nor do I need validation. I CHOOSE to do this because I refuse for all those who took their lives to be silenced as if what they did is shameful. Because it isn’t, being ill is not a choice. I choose to do this to constantly encourage those who have thankfully survived such attempts. Because they deserve to live. And I choose to do this for others also left behind, because WE need the support.
Suicide to many is not an interesting conversation, but how can it not be when we have lost SO many? We need to come together as a community and #BreakTheSilence. Join me and choose to be #StigmaFree. I can’t bare to lose anyone else, can you? Follow our movement and be part of the change @lgmuddy.
I’ll be a panel speaker at the UOG I Pinangon Annual Suicide Prevention Forum next Wednesday 09/26 from 6-8PM at UOG. It’s a free event and I encourage everyone who wants to be part of this change to come and Talk it Up with us!
