words to live by

It’s not your fault if someone you know takes his or her life. Family and friends of people who have committed suicide feel so much pain and guilt for not having been able to save their loved one. These people must forgive themselves and also forgive the dead. We must remember that it was ultimately their decision to leave, and they did. We are left behind, but we still must move forward with our lives.

Don’t give up on people
, no matter how suicidal they seem to be. Especially then! They may giving up on themselves but we shouldn’t.
