The intention of this group is to provide a place of support for those of us who continue to deal with the devastation of suicide loss. To gather together, to support one another, to share the story of our loss, to have the unabashed unconditional love of understanding surround our hearts, this is the goal. And maybe even have a few drinks/laughs together in between.
In 2010, when i was 28, my wife violently commit suicide. I've spent the last nine years reeling, trying to live normally, trying to understand what is me and what is my pain. I understand all too well the trauma this installs into the life you're still left to live and the obstacles it can place into your walk at any moment.
This is a new thing for me, a total exercise in vulnerability, i have no idea how this will go. Will people join this group? Am i alone in this? Will this even help me or anyone else? What's the point?
Let's get to the point together, and actually, i think maybe the point is simply to come together. Because we fight our battles in secret, behind drawn blinds; we need a place to be seen, to be known by each other.
Join me, please. It would be an honor to meet you.
