Finding Hope in Writing

For some people, they find their hope by expression through writing. While we offer some ways you can do this, we also have articles and poetry from others who have experienced suicide loss.

My 17 year old daughter took her life 7 weeks ago. She was my bright shining star, I love her so much. I dont want to talk about it because it hurts so much, but everyone tells me to talk about it. My parents tell me that they are also hurting - I feel that they are comparing my pain to theirs - it hurts so much. I dont know how to tell people I dont want to talk to them, they say I am pushing them away, but it hurts to go over it over and over just for somebody else. I miss my beautiful girls so much. Today walking throught the shoppoing centre at lunch, the pain in my heart was so great, I found it hard to breath. I dont want to continue with this pain, but I cant hurt my remaining children in this way. But I feel like I am just existing from minute to minute and that existance is filled with pain.

I am a survivor of 32 years and almost 4 years to my father and younger brother... the best words that I have heard throughout the roughest 4 years of my life were "he didn't make an irrational choices, he made a rational choice under irrational conditions!" this statement allowed for me to erase the "what if" questions. I struggle everyday to stay & keep positive! It's easier to stay positive now that it's been 4 years the wounds are healing however the pain still aches daily.... He is deeply missed however I will fight for who he is and was in my life to make a difference in the world...
