Do you turn your back on someone who is suicidal?
August 6, 2018 1:58pm CST
For that matter, do you ignore the warning signs of depression in someone you know? If you do you are just being selfish. I was once, when I put a phone caller on hold while I fiddled around with my computer's anti-virus due to having issues on my PC but if I had taken time to listen to my grandson, If only I had listened to him and paid attention He MIGHT BE ALIVE TODAY. So that is why I say it. I don't want YOU to live to regret not being their for someone you hold dear to your heart. The burden of regret is a VERY HEAVY BURDEN for anyone with a conscience. And I will carry this burden for the rest of my life. Regret for not being there to just LISTEN.

I am so sorry to hear this. I for once listen to my niece and tell my sister about her daughter's condition. My Niece wants to go to a psychiatrist and according to her she told her parents before but never listened. She was 15-16 years old and tries to slash her forearm with blade. As I saw all her scars, there were many. She did those because she wants to injure herself. For aome reason, maybe ahe needs a motherly care and love which during that time my sister was at a prime of her sales career. But God is good, he paved the way for my sister to listen to me. They are hopefully and positively on the road to recovery

I think its hard to tell, especially in this country. Where we teach toughen up or die so people choose to die. I do not want to blame culture as you do not, but this country is making me question why they never question. In truth that is straight scary.
So sorry to hear about that! You please be comfortable that you realize now that he was in depression now! I am sure you wouldn't have done that if you had an slightest idea at that time that he was in depression! Just be balanced! Thanks for the message to the Society!
