Suicide Is Not An Option

Makeup, beauty, confidence, girlfriend, lipstick This is just the tip of the iceberg to teen suicide.

This is dedicated to a friend who Gary Samson who never made it into adulthood.  As some of you know this video is auto Tweeted and posted to Facebook and thankfully it has already been seen by a couple of people.  One of those people to see this was one of my friend Lail.  Lail showed this video to her 15 year old daughter and after asking her mum I was promptly sent a friend request on Facebook.  Why am I telling you this?  Because you never know who you will impact by telling your story to, warts and all.  There is beauty everywhere and in my experience the most incredible beauty is often found in depths of ones murkiest and darkest times.  Sit back sistah’s, get comfortable, tune in and turn up the volume.

  1. Hi Stephen, I just had to post a comment. I also thought about suicide once or twice in my life and one night when I was up at our cottage drinking with my mom after I had broken up with what was then the LOVE of my life, I told her I wanted to kill myself, I told her there was nothing left for me here and I was so alone and felt like I was just so tired of it all. Tired of feeling lost, and useless and unlovable. Her reaction, she told me to stop talking to her, went in her room and shut the door for the night, leaving me there alone, lost and unloved. But that is/was my mom. My plan was not to do it that night, but the next day I woke up early and left to go home and on the way I stopped at the humane society and adopted what would become the true love of my life, my little Beagel/German Sheppard Girl, she saved my life!

    I also read your post about how you learnt not to hate your mom. My mom is still alive and our relationship is significantly better then it used to be while I was growing up and in my 20′s, but in my 30′s we sort of reconnected and I have come to terms with the fact that I am never going to get an apology from her, she will never admit to being a parent that was anything less then stellar and she would always respond to me by saying “You don’t know what you were like when you were growing up, you were a hard ass bitch” oh well c’est la vie. I will always harbour my bad memories with her, and her drinking was defiantly high on my list of things that made her a less then acceptable mom, I especially hated being her bartender when I was younger, she would always ask me to refill her scotch, two fingers of water and top it up with scotch….fun times! I hope I am not that mom with my kids…..

    Last night a college student in our town committed suicide. I wish he could have heard your message. Thank you for always being there for me when my day is dark. We may not communicate much, but wanted you to know that I am blessed to have you on my Twitter timeline.

    • Lidia. It doesn’t seem right to say thank you for bringing this to our attention, yet you’ve given us all something to think about today! Keep your heart-eyes open to others. Thank you for being here today my beautiful angel. I’d love to suggest you ask the family if there is anything you can do to help.
