There is a turn of phrase: “It’s good to talk.”
Now, the truth in this is debatable. Some people talk a lot and say very little. I have always been a talker. As I’ve got older, I’ve begun to listen more and more.
Sometimes what I hear uplifts me. Sometimes it frustrates me. Sometimes it spurs me to action and other times it comforts me. The written word can be just as, if not more, effective. Sometimes what I read on this blog encourages me to think in a different way about life. I can agree with that which I read; I can disagree; I can identify with what is shared by others or not.
There is no ‘wrong’ here. There is simply solidarity.
Whatever about just ‘talking’, it really can be so helpful to share. If you would like to share your experiences around suicide, or your thoughts about life, death, and what you believe really matters , you might like to consider contributing to this blog.

Sharing has helped me in many ways.
It might help you too.
