Something I began a few weeks ago for suicide prevention week. I wanted to draw a symbol that touched on some of the difficult emotions suicide can bring up. I look at this and remember my own past with suicidal thoughts, feeling as if being removed from the lives of those around me would be better for them and a perfect answer for me. Knowing whether I’m here or not, life goes on. I can’t let go of believing life has to show up beneath the ashes eventually. With that, the weight has been easier to bear.
